The Virgin Media Graduate and Internship Programme 2018 Get set for a great career

virg.in/earlycareers


The story so far… Back in 2010, we launched our graduate scheme by recruiting just 3 new people, but since then we’ve grown year on year and lightning bolt fast! We’ve taken on some amazing people and it’s fair to say that they’ve made such an incredible difference that we now take on more than 70 graduates and interns (placement year students) every year. We invest really heavily in the development of our graduates and interns – so much so that the majority of interns end up returning to uni with an offer for our graduate scheme and over 80% of all the graduates we’ve recruited are still with us and loving it! We love to shout about our #1 ranking as The Job Crowd’s Top IT & Telecoms Employer, and we’re proud of our previous Rate My Placement award wins. What’s more, we’re delighted that year on year we’ve improved our rankings with the Times Top 100 and Guardian UK300 Top Graduate Employers. Come and join us to get your career off to a blisteringly fast start!
