The commercial marketing scheme places you at the heart of Virgin Media’s operation. You’ll be right at the forefront, crafting our propositions, developing our ‘go to market’ strategies and marketing some the UK’s best campaigns – all for one of the most recognised brands in the country.
This two year scheme is made up of two 12 month placements – one in marketing and the other in commercial. First, however, we’ll give you a taste of the front line with a few weeks in a retail or customer contact environment to help develop your first-hand knowledge of what matters to our customers; something you’ll find invaluable in your career.
Then it’s a year in Marketing and a year in Commercial. In Commercial you’ll get a view of our projects and propositions from development right through to execution. You’ll have great exposure across the whole business working with a range of functions including; Mobile, Broadband, Digital Entertainment and Content.
For your Marketing rotation, you’ll spend time in an area like Customer Acquisition, Advertising, Strategy or Brand. Within Commercial, you’ll be part of a team that lead the businesses Commercial Strategy, Acquisition Planning, Revenue Management and Go to Market strategy.
These two areas of the business have been specifically chosen to bring you a depth of knowledge from the heart of the Virgin Media consumer operation.
At the end of the two year scheme, you’ll have a detailed knowledge of how a leading business builds its propositions; learning how we maximise and capture our audience to achieve our key objectives of growth whilst keeping our customers at the forefront of what we do.
The good things that’ll happen
You’ll be joining a passionate and driven team where you’ll have the opportunity to enhance and hone your data skills, business skills, and marketing savvy. You’ll work with some of the best people in the industry and above all, you’ll develop an understanding of what makes us Virgin Media and exactly what it takes to make sure we keep on delighting our customers.
It goes without saying that we’ll give you all the support you need to develop your skills with both training and varied experiences. What’s more, you’ll get a real chance to showcase your skills to our senior leadership team on some high impact business improvement projects – stuff that really matters and will make a difference.
At the end of the scheme we’d expect you to be perfectly poised for an exciting manager level role in our business in either our Marketing or Commercial teams.
