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.
