Cyber Security

Do you want to be a modern cyber security professional? Are you interested in learning from some of the brightest talent in the country to strengthen the security and digital resilience of our company, our customers, and our communities? Join us on our Cyber Security Apprentice Scheme and you can have it all.

Warnings about cyber threats and attacks are everywhere, and the constantly evolving nature of these threats can make understanding them overwhelming. In all this “cyber noise”, the answer could be you.  You’ll need to keep up to date with technology and cyber trends to make sure you’re one step ahead and protecting Virgin Media to the best of your abilities. 

Build skills for the future 

As an apprentice, you’ll be expected to throw yourself in and get involved. You’ll get to experience a number of different squads, picking up new skills from each. By the end, you’ll have a true insight into each area and will be able to specialise in the one you enjoy the most. By working alongside experienced colleagues, you will learn how to: 

  • Implement automated security tooling for containers and web applications   
  • Build hunting tools and automation for use in the discovery of adversaries   
  • Carry out security metric reporting and analysis to help understand the digital security posture   

…and so much more. 

What we look for 

You must have at least 5 GCSEs level 9-4 including Maths and English, or a level 2 apprenticeship, or equivalent. There will be a fair few analytical functions to this scheme, so you should be comfortable handling these. We want someone with a real passion for technology, with a drive to develop their career. Whilst you’ll be required to come into the office periodically, flexible working is available. Other than that, we’re open to meeting all kinds of applications!  

We’re 100% committed to having a workforce that represents every part of our society, so we’re keen to hear from candidates of all backgrounds and circumstances. The only barrier to applying would be if you didn’t have the right to work in the UK and were unable to obtain it without our support. 

What’s in it for you 

This opportunity sets you up for a successful career. You’ll pick up an abundance of transferable skills that you can use to move on through our business. We will support you in any development opportunities that may arise, as well as offering a very attractive starting salary of £30,000 with fantastic salary progression.
