Looking to fast-track your career in the unique and dynamic environment of one of the world’s leading converged video, broadband and communications companies? Then say hello to Virgin Media!

We’ve hired over 400 graduates since 2010 and we are still on a mission to hire many more!  We promise to make our opportunities exciting, while having some fun along the way! You just need to find your role and we are hoping this is the one for you (if not, don’t worry we have others)

Technology Graduate - Matrea Yip

"I would apply if you look forward to fresh challenges."

What to expect

Our two-year Technology & Transformation Business Management graduate scheme will develop talented people into great leaders. Our programme focuses on offering individuals full exposure to our Network Expansion operation and you’ll undertake four exciting placements of six months each, covering: 

  • Data & Insight
  • Operational Transformation
  • Commercial & Partner Management
  • Network Design & Build 

At Virgin Media our Network Expansion division is leading the way by growing our network footprint to reach millions of new customers, both residential and businesses, via fixed line and 5G connectivity. On each rotation you will be given a specific project to lead on and these will be real-time, genuine business-contributing projects. You’ll be the owner, not just support and progress it through to implementation.  As a UK wide company we’re able to offer a flexible working approach.  Your rotations will primarily be based from our key locations in Hammersmith, Reading, Birmingham and Manchester with some travel to collaborate with your colleagues.

What we look for 

To thrive on this scheme, you’ll need to be comfortable taking responsibility.  This is predominantly a business management role, but you’ll be heavily involved with our technical teams, which will be a great fit for people familiar with STEM disciplines and with a passion for technology in fields such as Maths, Computer Sciences (including AI and automation) or Engineering (Mechanical, Electrical or Civil).  You must have a 2:1 degree or above.

We’re 100% committed to having a workforce that represents every part of our society and we’re keen to hear from candidates of all background and circumstances. 

What’s in it for you

A fast-track into working on projects with serious scale, we’re building infrastructure that transforms whole communities! We also commit to boosting your development by offering a range of internal and external training opportunities and during the scheme you will work toward your project management certifications (such as APMP or MSP). In addition, you’ll receive a salary of £30,000 plus £2,000 welcome bonus + amazing benefits.  

Virgin Media and O2 have joined forces!

As of the 1st June 2021, Virgin Media and O2 joined forces combining the UK’s largest and most reliable mobile network with a broadband network offering the fastest widely-available broadband speeds. We’re the corporate brand of a 50:50 joint venture between Liberty Global and Telefónica SA, and are now one of the UK’s largest businesses.

We have exciting times ahead, and it’s a brilliant time to join us.
