At Virgin Media, Technology and Innovation are at the core of our ground-breaking telecommunications business – creating exciting ideas that could change the game when it comes to connecting people.

Join us, on one of our 12-month internships, and you’ll gain priceless insight into our operations in one of several key areas – such as Customer Equipment Security, Wireless Development, Network Analytics or Network Engineering and Capacity Planning – while developing transferrable skills that you can call on throughout your future career.

What’s it all about?

This role gives you hands-on experience of how we help deliver transformational products and services that improve the digital lives of our customers. There will also be opportunities for you to gather detailed engineering skills and experience the different facets of our finely tuned operation, while gaining a wider understanding of what makes us Virgin Media.

After an internship with us, you’ll have all the knowledge, skills, experience and exposure you need to thrive in your final year at university – and you’ll also have gained a real head start in your career.

How are you going to get there?

Ideally, we’re looking for interns with a predicted 2:1 degree or above in a STEM-related discipline (science, technology, engineering, maths). You need to be a budding innovator with a passion for technology and an insatiable appetite to learn more. You’ll also need to be relentlessly curious and a devil for detail with the confidence to challenge the status quo.
