Job Details


Want to start building a career in data with one of the UK’s most free-thinking, fun-loving companies? Or would you rather continue studying, learning and working towards professional qualifications? Join us on our 18-month Data Analyst Apprenticeship Scheme and you can do both.

Who are our Data Analysts?
Behind every one of our ground-breaking business strategies, you’ll find a report by a Data Analyst. They’re the eagle-eyed number lovers who are constantly unravelling the figures and coming up with ways to improve our business. They detail statistics. They predict future trends. They play a key role in keeping us ahead of the game.

Let’s talk about what you’ll be doing…
Being a Data Analyst Apprentice puts you right in the heart of our Network Strategy & Engineering team, where you’ll be collating, analysing and reporting on data associated with power and air conditioning equipment supporting our technical areas. The role involves interfacing not just with our monitoring systems but also with the many different colleagues, customers and suppliers who provide the information we need to manage our infrastructure.

…and what you’re going to learn...
Virgin Media is a data-rich organisation. So, on this programme, there are going to be almost limitless opportunities for you to use data to provide insight and drive our commercial value and decision-making. Specific areas you can gain experience in include:

  • Consumer analytics
  • Business intelligence
  • Strategy and planning

How are you going to get there?
We’re looking for people who can provide critical insight across our operations. So, it’s important that you can make sense of complex data and explain it in ways that everyone can understand, although don’t worry, we’ll teach you to become a pro at this!  If you also have some knowledge of data science methods, processes and systems, even better. Excellent communication, presentation and relationship-building skills are also essential. By the end of the apprenticeship, your scheme mentor and workmates will have helped you gain the knowledge, experience and exposure you need to enjoy a fantastic career as an Insight Analyst, Commercial Manager or Business Strategist. Plus you’ll enjoy a great salary with amazing benefits from the start!

Salary: £20,000 + amazing benefits. After 12-months, you can expect a salary increase to £23,000. On successful completion of the scheme, our apprentices typically move into roles with salaries of around £26,000-£27,000.


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!
