Behind all of Virgin Media’s groundbreaking business strategies, there’s an analyst’s report – detailing statistics of our performance or predicting future trends that give us the insight to make best informed decisions.
If you have a head for numbers and deciphering Big Data, our Analyst graduate scheme at one of the UK’s most forward-thinking and fun-loving companies, will seriously raise the probability of you enjoying a successful career!
Let’s talk about what you’ll be doing…
At Virgin Media, our ingenious analysis teams are in effect across the business – from finance to marketing to engineering to our contact centres. They’re eagle-eyed experts in finding ways to improve our business performance and culture.
Our two-year graduate scheme is all-encompassing and features challenging but exciting rotations across areas including Consumer Analytics, Business Intelligence, Strategy and Planning, and even some Network Expansion too!
You’ll develop an understanding of all aspects of business operations, strategy and finance as you hone your commercial, analytical and financial skills. And, because data does it for you, we’ll let you loose on large, complex datasets – providing you with state-of-the-art tools and technologies to make sure we stay ahead of the competition and drive our business forward.
How are you going to get there?
Essentially, you should have the ability to interpret complex data in a way that’s understood by people from a range of backgrounds. Having outstanding communication, presentation and relationship building skills are equally important to us.
That and a 2.1 degree or above in a numerical based degree (ideally maths, statistics or economics – but we’ll consider anyone who has studied a discipline that’s involved working with large datasets).
You’ll also need to be flexible about location as the scheme may involve placements across the country, including Hammersmith, Reading, Manchester, Sheffield and Birmingham.
So, what can we do for you?
Our end game is to transform you into a whizz at both statistical data analysis and commercial insight methodology. The rotations we’ve devised will provide you with broad experience across the business and rock-solid foundations to begin building a fantastic career from.
Once you’ve successfully completed the scheme, you might progress into varied roles such as Insight Analyst, Big Data Guru, Commercial Manager or Business Strategist.
Duration: 2 Years
