  • 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 O2 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 O2 to anyone. At Virgin Media O2 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.
