Salary notes: 
£30,000 plus commissions and £2,000 welcome bonus + amazing benefits 
Job/scheme locations: 
Reading, Birmingham, Manchester
Type of opportunity: 
Graduate scheme
Application deadline: 

At Virgin Media, we’re known for our ultrafast broadband speeds and £13 billion telecoms network. Join our Sales scheme and you could make a bit of a name for yourself as well. As a brilliant people person. As a jaw-droppingly good presenter. And as a graduate destined for a high-flying sales career. 


What to expect

Two years rotating through our Sales teams with non-stop learning opportunities along the way. Consumer households? Small to medium businesses? Public sector organisations? Wholesale? You’ll master them all, learning exactly how to profile and tailor your approach to each customer and sell them the services that meet their needs. You’ll also learn how to drive marketing activity and content while getting to know our amazing products inside out.


“My time on the sales scheme has given me in-depth knowledge and exposure to the various sectors of Virgin Media… and armed me with a transferrable skill set that has been invaluable to my current position, and future roles in my career.”

Catherine, Sales graduate


What we look for

As always in sales, personality is crucial. Our Sales teams work hard and have fun while they’re at it! That’s why we look for graduates with strong personal and presentation skills who are proactive and resilient enough to face any challenge head on. We would also love to hear from you if you have a technology background, although not essential for this scheme! You also need a 2:1 or above in any discipline.


What’s in it for you
Extensive training and support. Exposure to our Senior Leadership Team. Mentoring opportunities with top sales gurus. In short, everything you need to develop a superstar sales career. Then there’s the fantastic package we offer. Not only will you get £30k a year and a £2k welcome bonus – you’ll also earn an extra £5k commission if you hit your targets (as 75% of sales graduates do in their first year). And at the end of the scheme, there’s the potential for you to almost double your earnings, with typical salaries ranging from £40k to £70k.
