Virgin Media Business
It doesn’t take a detective to deduce that Virgin Media Business is the B2B arm of our brand – providing digital services to all manner of businesses from SMEs to vast public sector organisations.
We have over 3,500 people dedicated to our business customers alone. So, if you’re interested in providing businesses with first class connectivity and innovative unified solutions then applying for our Virgin Media graduate scheme is simply elementary!
What’s it all about?
Our two-year grad scheme will see you rotating within four placements across a multitude of key business functions including Corporate Development & Strategy, Commercial, Product, Customer Operations, Marketing and Sales. Everywhere you go, you’ll be solving problems for our customers and making Virgin Media Business their preferred partner for reasons beyond just our ultra-fast connectivity.
The scheme gives you valuable insight into our complete end-to-end customer experience – and how we make sure that every individual customer receives the appropriate solutions and professional services to drive growth. By the end of it, you’ll have built up broad exposure to our business and had opportunities to develop a whole of skills. All in all, the perfect preparation for pursuing your future career paths within the corporate world.
“The culture is so open and friendly… you can literally speak to anybody and they will help you out at all times.”
Mark, Virgin Media Business graduate
How are you going to get there?
The Virgin Media Business scheme is one of the most diverse and challenging grad schemes that we offer, so you should be a resilient all-rounder with commercial acumen, and confidence to challenge the status quo.
The scheme operates in an energetically paced digital marketplace where projects can change direction with the click of a mouse. So, our graduates need to be able to move with the times… and potentially to different parts of the country as well. Reading, Hammersmith, Manchester and Sheffield are some of the key locations your placements could take you.
You must have a 2:1 degree or above. Ideally, it will be a Business or Marketing degree, but we’re happy to hear from people in any discipline. If you also have six months or longer work experience in a relevant role, even better – although, again, it’s not essential.
So, what can we do for you?
From the first day, you’ll gain an in-depth understanding of our company, our culture and the ways we work – as well as an opportunity to meet the people you’ll need to begin building your own networks.
We’ll also support you if you choose to work towards a professional qualification. Prince2 Foundation? Six Sigma? ITIL? A CIM qualification from the Chartered Institute of Marketing? They’re just some of the qualifications our graduates have gained in the past.
And when you’re done and dusted, you’ll be on a fast-track route to your dream role, whether you see yourself leading large delivery or operational teams or working as a sales leader, commercial manager or marketing guru.
