Our apprenticeship scheme
See what it’s like to be a woman working in our Access & Networks team.
It’s important to us to attract and retain the best talent into our Access & Networks team - the people who make sure that everything runs smoothly on the technical side of our business.
In 2008 we launched an Apprentice scheme to train engineers and field technicians joining Virgin Media. Engineering is an industry that has traditionally been a very male-dominated environment, so for the last couple of years, we've been working hard to increase the number of women on this programme. It's still early days - there are three women on the scheme of 60 people - but we're reaching out to schools and colleges to get more young people, especially women, excited about starting a career in engineering with us.
