Virgin Media 2022 opportunities

Our apprenticeships give you the opportunity to earn while you learn, picking up qualifications to kick off the career you want.

We’re Virgin Media. We build connections that really matter.

Through our multi-award-winning broadband, TV, mobile and home phone services, we connect millions of homes and businesses across the UK and Ireland.

We’re well-connected

As of 1 June 2021, Virgin Media and O2 have joined forces to become Virgin Media O2. Our ambition is to upgrade the UK using lightning-fast broadband and a fantastic 5G mobile network. We employ around 18,000 people who are committed to going the extra mile for our customers.

We’re excited about our future. Right now, we’re growing every part of our business to connect even more customers to the things and people they care about. We’re also continuing to expand our network, delivering the UK’s fastest available broadband speed to more customers than ever before. We’re excited about your future too.

  • I would strongly recommend an apprenticeship to anyone

    I would strongly recommend an apprenticeship to anyone, whether you are a hands-on learner or more academically focussed.
  • There are many more doors for you to open

    As an apprentice, once you’ve opened one door, there are many more doors for you to open.
  • The investment that Virgin Media makes into apprentices is second to none

    The investment that Virgin Media makes into apprentices is second to none and I would never hesitate to recommend them as an employer.
Completing an apprenticeship at Virgin Media opened new doors for me, allowing me to work and be involved with something on a daily basis that I really enjoy, I take pride in what I do and would recommend joining Virgin Media to anyone. At Virgin Media we take a lot of pride in working as a team and always being there for someone, whether they are stuck with something and need a second opinion, or to lend a helping hand if they are running late.
