Job Details

COULD YOU DELIVER AWARD-WINNING NETWORK SERVICES?

Want to join one of the UK’s most free-thinking, fun-loving companies and become expert in its award-winning technical business practices? Or would you rather continue studying, learning and working towards professional qualifications? Join us on one of our Network Engineer Apprenticeship Scheme’s and you can do both.

Who are our Network Engineers?
They’re the technical experts who design, build and take care of the physical network of cabling and cabinets that carry our services from technical sites to customers’ homes. They play a crucial role in helping us get the most out of our network, which is the largest in the UK and Europe.

Let’s talk about what you’ll be doing…
This Network Engineering apprenticeship is office-based (with occasional travel to our sites) and focuses on designing the network.  You’ll be working within our Network Engineering team, helping to define architectural & engineering strategies and underlying roadmaps. It’s an opportunity to gain exposure to many different areas of our technology estate, from data, internet, voice and video to cloud infrastructure services.

How are you going to get there?
We’re looking for people who are good at managing relationships and have the confidence to challenge the status quo – and if you also have some knowledge of networks and relevant technologies, even better. By the end of the apprenticeship, your scheme mentor and workmates will have helped you add lots more skills to your locker, along with the experience and understanding you need to kickstart a successful career. Plus you’ll enjoy a great salary with amazing benefits from the start!

Apprenticeship: Level 3 Information Communication Technician
Duration: 18 months
Location: Reading
Requirements: 5 GCSEs level 9-4 or above (grade C) or equivalent, including Maths and English or a level 2 apprenticeship.  A driving licence, or currently working toward your driving licence will be required.
Salary: £19,000 + amazing benefits. After 12-months, you can expect a salary increase to £22,000. On successful completion of the scheme, our apprentices typically move into roles with salaries of around £26,000-£28,000.

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!
