Digital Marketing

Are you someone interested in the science and data that sits behind great Marketing campaigns? Want to study towards a professional qualification, pick up new skills, and gain real-life work experience? Join us on our Digital Marketing Apprenticeship to build the foundations to a successful career!

Be responsible for our future 

Hit targets. Drive online sales. Deliver innovative campaigns. These are all skills that you can learn when you join us on the Digital Marketing Apprentice scheme. We’re looking for fresh-thinking individuals to work with our marketing teams to propel Virgin Media in the ever-changing data-driven marketing world. 


Build skills for the future 

During this 16-month programme, you’ll work through 3 different rotations within our Digital Marketing teams: Paid & Performance Media, SEO/Organic Search, and Audience. We’re not always working on the glossy, client-facing end of a Marketing campaign but what we are is pivotal to their successful delivery and you’ll be able to dip your toe in several responsibilities, such as: 

  • Undertaking site crawls and technical audits to identify improvements in our SEO strategy 
  • Completing keyword research and analysing reports to shape our content strategy 
  • Delivering PPC campaigns to meet objectives, working with platforms such as Google Ads and Microsoft Ads
  • Produce regular content and conversion reports on key landing pages across the domain
  • Identifying and delivering new audience strategies to drive online sales 
  • Stay up to date with best practice and Google algorithm and quality guidelines to improve technical SEO processes 
  • Work closely with internal teams, Google, and key partners to improve strategies and automation 
  • Use data to segment customers and new prospects to define key target audiences for the digital sales team 


What we look for 

In this role, candidates will have to handle and analyse data, so an understanding of Microsoft Office, in particular Excel, is important. You should also have an interest in digital marketing, social media, blogging, websites and staying up to date with data privacy laws. These teams drive the future of Virgin Media so it’s important that you have attention to detail and a desire to deliver the best results. This role is based from our Hammersmith office however, there is the chance for flexible working where possible. 

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 is involved with studying for an apprenticeship? 

Your apprenticeship is made up of learning on the job, but also gaining the academic skills to put into practice in your day-to-day job.  As a result, you’ll complete the apprenticeship as part of a structured learning programme alongside working in the role. The learning programme is made up of a suite of modules and milestones and you’ll be required to evidence your work against these modules via tasks and assignments. For some apprenticeships, you may also undertake additional technical qualifications, which include studying for, and taking an exam. Once you have completed your modules and milestones, you’ll then move to your End Point Assessment (EPA) which is typically made up of an interview and a project. Once you pass this stage, you will receive your apprenticeship qualification with us. 


What’s in it for you 

With the skills you’ll pick up during this apprenticeship, you’ll be prepared to sit the final exam and earn yourself a Level 3 Digital Marketing qualification. This will help you progress onwards and upwards both through our business, and your career in Marketing. While on the scheme, you’ll get to enjoy a starting salary of £21,500 with some fantastic opportunities for salary progression. Plus, you will get access to amazing benefits, such as: 

  • Discounts of products, services and experiences

  • 25 days holiday each year
