At Virgin Media, it’s the people behind the cyberspace curtain who are responsible for super-charging the UK’s fastest available broadband speeds. And, that’s why we call our Humans Resources division ‘People’!

Our People Internships are designed to give you a priceless insight into how to manage those that shape our business – from attracting, training and making sure they’re paid to assessing and developing their progression through the company.

During your 12-month internship with us, you’ll develop transferrable skills that you can call on throughout your career. We’ll give you hands-on experience and an understanding of the inner workings of our organisation.

After an internship with Virgin Media, you’ll have all the knowledge, skills, experience and exposure you need to facilitate your final year at university – and give you a head start on your career track.


  • Ideally, we’re looking for interns with a predicted 2.1 or above in a relevant subject (i.e. Business & HR, Psychology, HRM).
  • We want future HR leaders who are confident, resilient and comfortable using your exceptional communication skills to resolve conflicts.
  • You’ll also need to share an enthusiasm for interpreting data and sharing insight.


We are now closed for applications for our 2019 People Intern programme. Details for our 2020 Intern programme will be posted shortly.
