Joining the Finance team at Virgin Media or our parent company Liberty Global means joining a team which is at the centre of everything we do. Throughout your three years on the graduate scheme, and the many years we’re sure you’ll spend with us following it, you’ll be involved in driving forward initiatives that are essential to the future of our business.
What’s it all about?
This an opportunity for you to become an expert in the telecommunications industry, gaining deep insight into one of the fastest moving and important industries around today.
When you apply, you’ll be considered for both our Virgin Media and Liberty Global schemes, though you’ll be able to state a preference if you have one. Either way, you’ll kick off the scheme by learning how to establish business relationships before turning this expertise towards roles across our wide range of finance areas such as Strategy, Procurement, Accounting Services, Commercial Finance, Risk & Compliance, Internal Audit and Business Control.
Whether you join our Virgin Media or Liberty Global scheme, you’ll experience working in different locations around the country and, potentially, beyond. All our finance graduates get to build connections that really matter with colleagues in both Virgin Media and Liberty Global through our quarterly Finance Development Network events.
“Joining Virgin Media was one of the best decisions I ever made. It’s an incredible company to work for and the Finance scheme is where the action is at; high-profile projects, exposure to senior leadership, and a great group of grads to go through it together with.” Olivia, previous Finance graduate
How are you going to get there?
You must have a projected 2:1 or higher. But we’re looking for individuals not specific qualifications, so your degree can be in any discipline as long as it’s combined with an inquisitive mind that can’t resist exploring new opportunities and the resilience to meet challenges head on.
We operate in an energetically paced digital marketplace, so you also need to be able to move with the times and to different locations that our placements may take you.
So, what can we do for you?
We’ll fully fund and support you to achieve your CIMA qualification with generous study leave and pay progression that are both far above the industry standards. Together with all the technical, organisational and relationship-building skills you’ve acquired, you’ll be able to work your way towards a future leadership career.
Over half of FTSE 100 CEOs come from a finance background. That’s something to consider when you’re planning your future career.
You’ll need to climb a relatively steep learning curve, but we’ll provide a support structure to help guide you towards becoming a well-rounded Finance professional.
