As the UK marks National Apprenticeship Week (7-13 February 2022), Virgin Media O2 is announcing it is creating more than 200 new apprenticeship roles across the country.

The roles will support Virgin Media O2 in its aim of upgrading the UK with first class gigabit broadband and 5G mobile services, while providing a vital skills boost to communities and the economy.

Currently, there are more than 100 apprenticeship roles available from engineering – which includes the installation of broadband and TV services in customers’ homes, to the expansion and maintenance of our gigabit network, as well as digital marketing, project management, and more.

The apprenticeship roles are based nationwide, including London, Bellshill (North Lanarkshire, Scotland), Birmingham, Bristol, Gateshead, Manchester, Reading and Sheffield.

All roles are offered on a permanent contract with a minimum starting salary of £19,000 – well above the UK’s average for an apprenticeship scheme.

Further apprenticeship roles will be available later this year.
