We’ve been a busy bunch, growing our network to include more homes and commercial premises than ever before. We are delivering the biggest investment in the UK’s digital infrastructure for over a decade, with a £3bn programme to extend our ultrafast broadband network and brilliant Virgin TV to millions of homes and businesses.

As we enter one of the most exciting times in our history we are looking for a Build Engineer that oozes our Virgin values and embraces the on-going ways of working within Liberty Global.

What will you be doing?

We are on the hunt for some more super sparks to expand our Lightning force.

Most people think of a Build Engineer as someone who is digging up the grounds, doing manual labour all day – but this role is far from it. This is an exciting opportunity to play a key role at the forefront of Virgin Media and is a crucial role in our plan to add 4 million new homes to our network, you will be the main point of contact for our grounds work partners, supervising and coordinating a range of build works and projects on site.

What is the role about? 

You will be a health & safety advocate, providing expertise in design, technical specifications and best practice for ground works. As well as being a trusted, subject matter expert - you’ll mediate between our Partners, Planning and Activation Field Engineers on a wide range of matters. You will be the point of escalation for any contractual dispute or regulation non-compliance.

Are you right for the role?

So it’s the moment of truth, right? What are we looking for in the successful candidate?

We are looking  for someone super organised with proven experience of building and maintaining good working relationships with external stakeholders,  for example local authorities and other utilities.  Our teams are market leading experts and we will teach you all you need to know. We will support you through the NRSWA qualification if you don’t already hold it. 

The only 2 things need you to have experience of is managing multiple sites, whilst working within a CIVILS and streetworks type role and a full driving license.

Virgin Media is part of Liberty Global, the world’s biggest cable company. We are delivering the biggest investment in the UK’s digital infrastructure for over a decade. Through four multi-award-winning services - Virgin Fibre, Virgin TV, Virgin Mobile and Virgin Phone - we help people access technology to build connections that really matter.
