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 

Our scheme lasts two years with rotations across a range of departments. You will experience different aspects of either the Digital and Data technical or commercial stream within our Digital teams. At Virgin Media O2, we are passionate about creating change and you’ll help us do just that. On our technical stream, you’ll broaden your knowledge and experience in areas such as Digital Product, Digital Technology and Digital Security. On the commercial stream, you will get involved with Strategy, Delivery and Transformation. 

This scheme revolves around what you see for your future career, the projects going on within the business, and business need. So, no two days will ever be the same. Develop valuable skills and experience on new, real-life projects that are changing all the time.  

Our team is based all over the UK, and you could be too. You will be able to work from our Hammersmith, Manchester, Birmingham or Reading locations while on the scheme. During the programme, you may be required to relocate within the UK, so you’ll need to be willing and flexible. 


What we look for  

Graduates who are curious, fresh-thinking and driven with a real passion for innovation and exploring digital solutions. You should be brave, willing to experiment, even if it means failing, and confident enough to challenge our ways of working. This role will have you jumping from project to project, so you need to be agile and capable of handling multiple tasks of varying priorities at once, making sure you’re delivering on time.  We’re looking for individuals that are stimulated by a lot of change with ongoing projects. Other qualities we’d like to see include: 

  • Resilience 
  • Adaptability to keep up with our fast-moving business 
  • A growth mindset  
  • Keen to make a difference in the digital world 
  • Ability to get going quickly 

Our specific requirements are a predicted 2:1 or above in a STEM-related discipline (science, technology, engineering, maths) for our technical stream or a predicted 2:1 or above in any discipline for our commercial stream; demonstration of a strong interest in innovating and exploring digital solutions; the right to work in the UK. 

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 fast-track a route to your dream role, backed with some of the most valuable digital skills you could ask for. You’ll be working with best in class, inspiring leaders. You’ll also receive a salary of £35,000 plus a £2,000 welcome bonus. Plus, get access to all of our employee benefits, including:  

  • 25 days’ holiday  
  • Flexible benefits package including medical plans and buying and selling holiday
