What to expect
Our scheme lasts two years with four 6-month rotations within our fast-paced, target-driven B2B organisation. You could experience areas of our SMB (small and medium business) segments, such as:
- Public Sector
You’ll master each of these areas, learning how to profile and tailor your approach to each customer, selling them the services that meet their needs. Learn how to drive marketing activity and content while getting to know our amazing products inside out. The customers you’ll work with are demanding, but very exciting, and you’ll have the opportunity to support them through their digital transformation using our products, ultimately improving their customers’ experience.
This scheme will kick off in Manchester for the first year, with the opportunity to work from any of our other UK locations, whether that’s Hammersmith, Reading for the remainder of the scheme.
“My time on the sales scheme has given me in-depth knowledge and exposure to the various sectors of Virgin Media… and armed me with a transferrable skill set that has been invaluable to my current position, and future roles in my career.”

That’s why we look for graduates with strong personal and presentation skills. We want to see your passion and excitement for sales. 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.
