Risk and compliance is a growing area of employment that's tailormade for anyone interested in law or accounting - who's also a devil for detail!

In this role we basically ensure that businesses stick to government laws and regulations - such as commercial licensing, training, insurance and taxes. Making sure we all play by the rules.

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

As part of our Data Protection/Risk Management Apprenticeship Scheme, you'll get the opportunity to be involved in all sorts of compliance issues that help reduce business risks within Virgin Media.

With help from your scheme mentor and other workmates, you'll learn how to manage complaints, support internal policies, assess risks, present reports, improve awareness and make sure that our projects are always in line with the law!

We'll also need you to be able to build trust and professional relationships with key partners, give advice to senior colleagues and travel throughout the UK as and when you're needed.

How are you going to get there?

You'll need GCSEs in Maths and English (Grades C+/ 4-9) or equivalent, but we're more interested in people's attitude and personality than their qualifications.

There will be times when you'll need to present your compliance findings to other areas of the business - so you'll also need excellent written and communication skills, a meticulous eye for detail and the confidence to challenge the status quo.

Flexible travel throughout the UK, as and when needed, may also be necessary.

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 you'll need to kick start a successful career with us - while being paid a decent salary with amazing benefits!

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 legal and accounting skills to tech roles.

We're looking for talented men and women who are naturally analytical and tenacious, great communicators and able to work alone or as part of a team. If you comply with these requirements then... Come and be a part of something special at Virgin Media!
