Responsibilities

Join our Network Expansion team as an apprentice and try your hand in a true problem-solving role. Get involved in a huge variety of projects and gain skills that you’ll carry with you for the remainder of your professional life.

Build skills for the future:

Our Build teams are responsible for expanded our lightning-fast broadband speeds into new areas of the UK. We use the RAID Project Management technique- risk, assumption, issues, and dependencies – to successfully deliver projects on time and within budget!

These techniques need to be applied to all of your responsibilities, which could include:

  • Working collaboratively with Build partners to deliver multiple projects within challenging environments
  • Implementing build activity to ensure that Virgin Media policies and processes, as well as legal regulations, are met throughout
  • Driving projects within the team, from the approval and build stages, all the way through to release and handover
  • Resolve issues daily, such as congestion in network capacity, route changes, and design changes

What we look for:

You’ll be handling multiple projects at once so fantastic organisation skills and attention to detail are very important. It is vital that you have a full UK driving licence as you may be required to travel regularly within your region.

We’re 100% committed to having a workforce that represents every part of our society, so we’re keen to hear from candidates of all backgrounds and circumstances. The only barrier to applying would be if you didn’t have the right to work in the UK and were unable to obtain it without our support.

What’s in it for you?

During the programme, you’ll work towards a Project Management Level 4 Apprenticeship, which is secured with a final assessment, as well as the association of project management qualification (APM PMQ). There’s also an amazing starting salary of £20,000 on offer, with loads of opportunities for that to grow. As this is a mobile role, we’ll even supply a company car. Plus, we’ve got plenty of other fantastic benefits for our apprentices to enjoy including:

  • Company pension
  • 25 days holiday
  • Your birthday off

...and loads more!

What is involved with studying for an apprenticeship?

Your apprenticeship is made up of learning on the job, but also gaining the academic skills to put into practice in your day-to-day job. As a result, you'll complete the apprenticeship as part of a structured learning programme alongside working in the role. The learning programme is made up of a suite of modules and milestones and you’ll be required to evidence your work against these modules via tasks and assignments. For some apprenticeships, you may also undertake additional technical qualifications, which include studying for, and taking an exam. Once you have completed your modules and milestones, you’ll then move to your End Point Assessment (EPA) which is typically made up of an interview and a project. Once you pass this stage, you will receive your apprenticeship qualification with us.
