Virgin Media O2 to create 200 entry-level jobs

Virgin Media O2 is investing in its early career scheme with plans to hire around 200 graduates, interns and apprentices this year. 

This will break down barriers for young people starting their careers in the industry said Head of Future Careers Karen Handley.

She said: “It’s wrong that many talented young people are being overlooked for entry-level roles because they don’t have prior experience.

Apprentices will learn in-demand skills, gain a recognised qualification, and get into careers which would, in some instances, require a degree. Graduates and interns will get the opportunity to rotate around different departments. 

The entry-level positions, all permanent, will be across the UK, offering job salaries of at least £22,500 and up to £35,000.

Handley adds: “We believe in creating opportunities not obstacles, hiring based on potential with no prior experience or CVs needed for any of our early career roles.”
