Analyst

CAN WE COUNT ON YOU TO CRUNCH OUR NUMBERS?

Our eagle-eyed Data Analysts are constantly unravelling figures and coming up with ways to improve our business, culture and customers’ lives

Behind all of Virgin Media’s groundbreaking business strategies, there’s an analyst’s report – detailing statistics and predicting future trends that help us stay ahead of the game.

If you have a head for numbers and decoding Big Data, our Data Analyst Apprenticeship Scheme will raise the probability of kick starting a successful career with one of the UK’s most free-thinking and fun-loving companies.

Let’s talk about what you’ll be doing…

We have an amazing opportunity to join us as part of Project Lightning – a team that’s hell bent on expanding our super-fast network to even more homes and businesses across the country.

As part of the two-year scheme, you’ll receive first-class support and guidance from your scheme mentor and other workmates. You’ll learn all about what makes our network so special, while gaining experience in areas such as Consumer Analytics, Business Intelligence, and Strategy and Planning.

Because data does it for you, we’ll get you to provide critical insight across business, finance and strategy operations, identify patterns and future trends, and put together eye-opening reports to help us do things better!

How are you going to get there?

An interest in data science methods, processes and systems is a bonus but not essential – as long as you’re willing to learn! With our help, you’ll be able to interpret complex data and explain it in a way that’s easy to understand by people from different backgrounds.

You’ll need excellent communication, presentation and relationship building skills – as well as a few relevant qualifications, including an A level, or equivalent, in a STEM based subject (preferably maths, statistics or economics but it’s not a deal breaker).

You’ll also need to be flexible about location and travel as the scheme may involve placements across the country, including Birmingham, Hook, Reading, Hammersmith.

So, what can we do for you?

We’re looking for men and women who we can transform into Data Analyst whizz kids to drive our business forward. You’ll gain experience, exposure and the chance to earn a decent salary while building a fantastic career as an Insight Analysis, Commercial Manager or Business Strategist.

In 2017, we announced our long-term vision of achieving 50/50 gender parity by 2025. It’s super-important for us to reflect equality, especially for STEM based subjects – and that’s why we’re encouraging men and women to bring their skills to tech roles.
