Project Management - Higher Apprenticeship
Project Management roles fall under the Lightning arm of our organisation, regional and national teams who maintain and shape delivery programmes and support the governance decision process.
We’re constantly challenging our competitors and we need to stay ahead of the curve. To do that, we are looking for talented women and men who are super organised, determined and devils for the fine detail!
At Virgin Media, 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…
As part of our Project Management Apprentice Scheme, you’ll get the chance to be involved in the governance decision process, the regional and national delivery build plans to ensure delivery to grow the VM network to ensure our customers receive a top-quality service.
With fantastic guidance from your scheme mentor and other workmates, you’ll learn all about our project scheduling and governance to support the delivery of projects. While we’re training you in the art of Project Management, you’ll also be responsible for supporting our Project Management Office, ensuring efficient co-ordination of activities across the Lightning Programme.
Alternatively, you might be taught how to manage delivery of new solutions and trials that that can be used to vastly improve our Customer Experience and NPS in a centrally driven locally delivered framework.
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.
Lightning provides the growth engine for Virgin Media as we continue to expand the network becoming the UK’s No. 1 digital solutions provider. So, we’re looking for women and men 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 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.
This is an exciting opportunity to play a key role at the forefront of our Lightning Team.
