We'll help transform you into a Project Management pioneer - teaching you the inner workings of our business to become our 'go-to person' for B2B opportunities

Project Manager roles fall under the Virgin Media Business (VMB) arm of our organisation, which takes care of our B2B customers - providing and selling our groundbreaking services to companies of all sizes.

We're constantly challenging our competitors and we need to stay ahead of the curve. To do that, we are looking for talented men and women who are super organised, determined and devils for the fine detail!

Let's talk about what you'll be doing...

As part of our Project Management Apprentice Scheme, you'll get the chance to be involved with Project Lightning, which is currently supercharging the UK's fastest broadband speeds.

With help from your scheme mentor and other workmates, you'll learn all about our largest network hubs (Vhubs) that seamlessly connect up to 3,000 homes at a time. While we're training you in the art of Project Management, you'll also be responsible for approving network engineer solutions that can be used to reduce costs to Lightning.

Alternatively, you might be taught how to manage site and delivery issues to avoid plants becoming stranded due to stock availability or late deliveries. As a central delivery manager, you will be responsible for finding tactical ways to prevent stranded plants from losing us business.

How are you going to get there?

We'll expect you to have at least five GCSEs (Grades C+/4-9), including Maths and English, and hold a minimum of 48 UCAS points, or equivalent. But, we're just as interested in what makes people want to join one of the UK's most forward thinking and fun-loving companies.

VMB is the fastest growing member of the Virgin Media family and we're hell bent becoming the UK's No. 1 digital solutions provider. So, we're looking for people with a can-do attitude, curious nature and the motivation to develop themselves and our business.

So, what can we do for you?

During our award-winning schemes, you'll gain all the experience and exposure to our leading business practices that you'll need to kick start an exciting career at Virgin Media - and we'll pay you a decent salary with amazing benefits too!

In 2017, we announced our long-term vision of achieving 50/50 gender parity by 2025. It's super-important for us to reflect equality, especially for STEM based subjects - and that's why we're encouraging men and women to bring their skills to tech roles.

This is an exciting opportunity to play a key role at the forefront of our Lightning force... Come and be a part of something special at Virgin Media!
