Virgin media is creating an impressive 120 new apprenticeships, helping young people get involved with the increasing demand for the company’s superfast broadband and on-demand TV services. The positions themselves were created during National Apprenticeship Week.
The company has helped more than 350 apprentice engineers’ move on to full-time jobs within the past two years alone, and over 750 have benefited since starting training programmes in 2008.
Virgin Media currently offer three levels of apprenticeships, being: intermediate; advanced and higher. Each of these levels offer varying degrees of skills and difficulties, allowing young people a great way into the business and corporate worlds.
Paul Buttery, Virgin Media’s Chief Customer, Technology and Networks Officer, has stated:
‘An apprenticeship launched my career and all apprentices should set their sights on getting to the top of their industry. We are really proud of our schemes, which have been a great success over the last six years and are expanding into different parts of our business, including management.’
