Job Details

Want to study towards a recognised qualification while learning transferable skills and gaining important Project Management experience? Join us on the Network Delivery Project Manager Apprenticeship and have it all. 

 

 

 

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.

Company

Our business might have first burst into life in 2007, but our history is the history of phone, TV and internet in the UK. Why? Simple. Because we’re its future. Our culture is led by ideas and pioneers, challenge and creativity, and diversity and opportunity – it’s about always looking forward and the truth is we’re just getting warmed up.

Our network may be the biggest in the UK and Europe, unrivalled for its power and speed. But we’re not resting. We’re investing. In the network and our people. We plan to invest an additional £40 million over the next three years to refurbish key sites and acquire new alternative sites for our people.

Right now, our combination of voice, broadband and video products, combined with TiVo, sets the standard in homes across the nation. The future is all about going beyond the home, and beyond the norm. We’re going to explode the possibilities – giving people the communication, entertainment and connectivity they want, whenever and wherever they want it.

Virgin Media is building connections that really matter.  If it matter to our clients, then it really matters to us.

We’ve got a very different way of looking at the world, and it shows in what we're like as a place to work. It’s not a nine-to-five, clock in and tune out sort of place. And there’s no corporate mask to put on at the door – you can just be yourself. So, you'll be joining a bunch of people who are naturally adventurous, inventive and never stop questioning to make sure we aren’t missing a trick. 

As part of our varied apprenticeship schemes, we’re committed to helping talented people move onwards and upwards through our business. All of our schemes are designed to give you the knowledge, skills, experience and exposure you need to progress and develop a rewarding Virgin Media career.

When you’re part of the Virgin Media family you can trust us to do the right thing by you. So we go all-out to be a great place to work – and we offer some pretty impressive benefits too. Join us, and in return, you’ll get brilliant training and loads of mentoring to help you blaze a trail through our business. We promise you’ll have more than a little fun along the way!
