We’re Virgin Media. We’ve hired over 400 graduates since 2010 and 90% of our Graduates & Interns say they’re proud to work for us. 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).
Bring your people skills to one of the UK’s biggest (and probably best!) telecommunications companies. Learn how to sell amazing solutions to everyone from families to Fortune 500 businesses. Launch yourself on a high-flying sales career.
What to expect
Two years rotating through our Sales teams with non-stop learning opportunities along the way. The placements will be within our B2B organisation, rotations are around our customer segments of SME, Enterprise, Public Sector, and our Wholesale businesses across our full portfolio of products. You’ll master them all, learning exactly how to profile and tailor your approach to each customer and sell them the services that meet their needs. You’ll also learn how to drive marketing activity and content while getting to know our amazing products inside out.
“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.”
Catherine, Sales graduate
What we look for
As always in sales, personality is crucial. Our Sales teams work hard and have fun while they’re at it! That’s why we look for graduates with strong personal and presentation skills who are proactive and resilient enough to face any challenge head on. We would also love to hear from you if you have a technology background, although not essential for this scheme! You also need a 2:1 or above in any discipline.
What’s in it for you
Extensive training and support. Exposure to our Senior Leadership Team. Mentoring opportunities with top sales gurus. In short, everything you need to develop a superstar sales career. Then there’s the fantastic package we offer. Not only will you get £30k a year and a £2k welcome bonus – you’ll also earn an extra £5k commission if you hit your targets (as 75% of sales graduates do in their first year). And at the end of the scheme, there’s the potential for you to almost double your earnings, with typical salaries ranging from £40k to £70k.
