One Year into the Grad Scheme: An Analyst’s Analysis

Nicholas Lee

October 11, 2017

When I first joined the scheme a year ago I was looking for a career that would challenge me, allow me to apply analytical skills I had developed throughout my degree to real life problems and give me the opportunity to learn. I must say that Virgin Media has exceeded my expectations! Read about my first weeks at Virgin Media here.

In my first year I was placed in Virgin Media Business and had the opportunity to learn about the entire business (our strategy and how we’re performing), work on some really interesting projects and learn how to use great software (SQL, Qlik View, Qlik Sense and more). The responsibility that we’re given is awesome, just two weeks ago I was presenting my market share project to the strategy director and my analysis got sent to the managing director every week (he carries it around with him wherever he goes).

I think two things really make Virgin Media stand out from the crowd: the opportunities that are available to you and the people that make up the company. I’ve had the privilege of being a member of the Graduate Committee (our goal is to create a strong sense of a graduate community), pushed forward new analysis and recommendations to the business and worked with some really genuine people.

Virgin Media is a phenomenal place to work, the fast paced environment, coupled with our Red Hot branding and values truly bring out sense of identity within the office. I’m really happy that I applied and I encourage you to do the same!
