Meet Priyanka

“My dad encouraged me to get into engineering. So I did an undergrad in India and got a first-class master’s degree in Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering from Staffordshire University.

I applied for two types of engineering roles at Virgin Media. One was a Design Planner and the other was Field Engineer. As I had more experience in the Field Engineer area, that’s the job I was successful in. As a mum, it’s worked out for me because I get to be with my family and help other people.

There’s a lovely feeling of Virgin Media feeling like a home away from home. That feeling of inclusivity, belonging and team play really matters. ”
