Job Details

Do you want to be a modern cyber security professional? Are you interested in learning from some of the brightest talent in the country to strengthen the security and digital resilience of our company, our customers, and our communities? Join us on our Cyber Security Apprentice Scheme and you can have it all.

Warnings about cyber threats and attacks are everywhere, and the constantly evolving nature of these threats can make understanding them overwhelming. In all this “cyber noise”, the answer could be you.  Keep up to date with technology and cyber trends to make sure you’re one step ahead and protecting Virgin Media to the best of your abilities.

Build skills for the future

As an apprentice, you’ll be expected to throw yourself in and get involved. By the end, you’ll have a true insight into each area and will be able to specialise in the one you enjoy the most. Learn how to:

  • Implement automated security tooling for containers and web applications 
  • Build hunting tools and automation for use in the discovery of adversaries 
  • Carry out security metric reporting and analysis to help understand the digital security posture 

What we look for

You must have at least 5 GCSEs level 9-4 including Maths and English, or a level 2 apprenticeship, or equivalent. There will be a fair few analytical functions to this scheme, so you should be comfortable handling these. We want someone with a real passion for technology, with a drive to develop their career. Whilst you’ll be required to come into the office periodically, flexible working is available. Other than that, we’re open to meeting all kinds of applications!

We’re 100% committed to having a workforce that represents every part of our society, so we’re keen to hear from candidates of all backgrounds and circumstances. The only barrier to applying would be if you didn’t have the right to work in the UK and were unable to obtain it without our support.

What’s in it for you

This opportunity sets you up for a successful career. You’ll pick up an abundance of transferable skills that you can use to move on through our business. We will support you in any development opportunities that may arise, as well as offering a very attractive starting salary of £30,000 with fantastic salary progression. Plus, you will enjoy some very exciting benefits.

Virgin Media and O2 have joined forces

Virgin Media and O2 joined forces combining the UK’s largest and most reliable mobile network with a broadband network offering the fastest widely available broadband speeds. We’re the corporate brand of a 50:50 joint venture between Liberty Global and Telefónica SA and are now one of the UK’s largest businesses.

We have exciting times ahead, and it’s a brilliant time to join us.

Apprenticeship: Level 4 Cyber Security
Duration: Up to 20 months
Requirements: 5 GCSES Level 9-4 including Maths and English, or a Level 2 Apprenticeship or equivalent 
Salary: Starting salary of £30,000, with an increase to £33,000 after 12 months. Final salaries can be as high as £40,000 + additional London Weighting Allowance + amazing benefits

Deadline: 7 February 2022


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!
