Support for Refugees

As the humanitarian crisis impacting Ukraine continues, here at Virgin Media O2 we’re committed to doing what we can to help.

That’s why at Virgin Media Careers/O2 Careers we’ve launched a new support package to assist those seeking refuge with their search for employment.  This offer is for anyone with refugee status, whether Ukrainian residents who have travelled to the UK, or those who have fled other conflict zones, and have been granted the Right to Live and Work in the UK.

We understand that the prospect of needing to settle into a new country will be daunting, so we want to do what we can. One of the things that we’re offering is a fast track application process for those keen to secure employment.

We have over 1000 roles at Virgin Media O2, spread across the UK, and we’re ready and prepared to support people in identifying which role might be of interest and a good fit to their skills.

To further support, we’re also introducing free English language lessons and medical assistance, as part of our employee benefits (these are new benefits which will be opened out and available to all employees).

We’ll also be keeping up to date with the latest Government guidance and will continue to review what else we can be doing to provide the best support possible, as things change.
