Are you ready to #PlayAtPace?

We’re Virgin Media O2

Since we joined forces, we’ve been reimagining connectivity to upgrade the UK. We’re a beacon of innovation, brimming with new ideas and dedicated people. Lighting up life for millions of homes, businesses and communities. Striving to give our customers unconditional connectivity. We’re here to challenge the market – to win, not compete.

We’ve hired over 450 graduates since 2010, beating industry averages in how engaged and diverse our community is! So, we know how to make these opportunities exciting and valuable for you. You just need to find your role. Perhaps this is it (if not we have others!). 

What to expect 

We want our graduates to play an active role in influencing the future of our products, services and experiences for customers for years to come. Our scheme lasts two years with four 6-month rotations across a range of departments. You will experience different aspects of our Business & Wholesale operation while building a wider understanding of the business and contributing to our unrivalled success. This will give you exposure to a variety of areas including, but not limited to, Commercial, Product, Operations, Marketing, Transformation, Strategy and Delivery.

Everywhere you go, you’ll be solving problems for our customers and giving them lots of reasons to love us…. You’ll broaden your knowledge and experience in areas such as:

  • Digital processes
  • Data analytics
  • Project management
  • Financial analysis
  • Innovation strategies
  • Customer propositions
  • Commercial management
  • Change management

We have a flexible workforce, primarily working out of our hub locations in Reading and Slough, but rotations may take you to our wider satellite offices in Hammersmith and Manchester.  We currently operate a hybrid working environment with the expectation you spend at least 2 days per week in your rotation office.

The graduate scheme provided an opportunity to experience the business from a multitude of perspectives. This allowed me to develop a 360 understanding of how the business not only functions, but how it could function better. Each of my rotations allowed cross-pollination of ideas into the next, and the variety of experiences allowed me to find my own niche in Strategy.”

What we look for

Graduates who are curious, resilient all-rounders with commercial acumen, collaborative and confident enough to question the ways in which we work. We also want to see your passion for the role of digital in the world as well as your willingness to adapt with our fast-moving business. We’re looking for individuals super-motivated to become our leaders of the future.

You must have a 2:1 or above, although it doesn’t matter in which subject – we’re more interested in your qualities than your specific qualifications.

We’re 100% committed to having a workforce that represents every part of society. So, we’re keen to hear from candidates from all backgrounds and circumstances.

 

What’s in it for you

An opportunity to try out a variety of roles across different departments, fast-tracking a route to your dream role. You’ll receive a salary of £35,000 plus a £2,000 welcome bonus. In addition, we can help you work towards a professional qualification, such as Prince 2 Foundation, Six Sigma, CIMA, FMVA or ITIL. You’ll also be offered a highly generous study leave and pay progression that is very competitive! Plus, get access to all of our employee benefits, including:

  • 25 days’ holiday
  • Flexible benefits package including medical plans and buying and selling holiday
  • Discounts on Virgin Media O2 services
