Behind all of Virgin Media's ground-breaking business strategies, there's an analyst's report - detailing statistics and predicting future trends that help us stay ahead of the game.

If you have a head for numbers and decoding Big Data, our Data Analyst Apprenticeship Scheme welcomes both women and men to raise the probability of having a successful career with one of the UK's most free-thinking and fun-loving companies.

All our Apprenticeship Schemes are offered on permanent contracts. And, around 90% of apprentices stay on with us - while others will have gained transferable skills that are sought after elsewhere.

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

We have an amazing opportunity to join our Data Analyst Apprenticeship Scheme. Virgin Media is a data rich organisation, which means the freedom to explore and use data to provide insight that drives our commercial value and decision-making is practically unlimited!

Whether you're identifying data trends and patterns, putting together key reports or working on Project Lightning - the team that's hell bent on expanding our super-fast network to more homes and businesses - you'll get fantastic guidance from your scheme mentor and workmates as you learn all about what makes our network so special. As part of the scheme, you'll also gain valuable experience in areas such as Consumer Analytics, Business Intelligence, and Strategy and Planning.

Because data does it for you, we'll get you to provide critical insight across our operations, while you mastermind eye-opening reports to help us do things better!

How are you going to get there?

Knowledge of data science methods, processes and systems is a bonus but not essential - if you're willing to learn! With our help, you'll be able to make sense of complex data and explain it in a way that's easy to understand by people from different backgrounds.

You'll need excellent communication, presentation and relationship building skills - as well as a few relevant qualifications, including an A level, or equivalent, in a STEM* based subject (preferably maths, statistics or economics but it's not a deal breaker).

You'll also need to be flexible about location and travel as the scheme may involve placements across the country, including Birmingham, Reading and Hammersmith.

So, what can we do for you?

We're looking for men and women who we can transform into Data Analyst whizz kids to drive our business forward. You'll gain experience, exposure and the chance to earn a decent salary while building a fantastic career as an Insight Analysis, Commercial Manager or Business Strategist.

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 and diversity in our workforce, especially for STEM* based subjects - and that's why we're encouraging men and women to hone their technical skills with us.

Can we count on you to make sense of the numbers and deliver information that gets decisions made?

Join Virgin Media... Come and be a part of something special!
