Virgin Media To Create Over 140 Apprenticeships In Sheffield & Teesside

Virgin Media has announced recruitment plans for 140 new apprenticeships in Sheffield and Teesside.

The new apprenticeships will be split 50/50 between the two areas, with around 70 vacancies up for grabs in Sheffield and a further 70 positions on offer at Virgin Media’s contact centre at Stockton in Teesside.

All of the positions are for Customer Retentions Advisor apprenticeships and Virgin Media say that the roles could transition into permanent jobs for talented candidates.

The apprenticeships training will last for one year and three months, leading to a Level 2 Apprenticeship qualification for the young people who successfully complete the course.

Commenting on the new positions in Sheffield and Teesside, Virgin Media’s chief corporate affairs officer, Brigitte Trafford, said: “We are delighted to be expanding our apprenticeship scheme with the creation of more than 140 new roles. Those that are enrolled on to the programme will benefit from some of the best hands-on training available and will be guided every step of the way throughout the duration of their course.”

And, commenting on the Stockton apprenticeships in particular, the Mayor of Tees Valley, Ben Houchen, said: “Apprenticeships can change the life of young people and the businesses they work with for the better. They offer a vital alternative to university for many school leavers, and I’m delighted to see a household name like Virgin Media put their faith in our local workforce by opening up 70 new positions.”

“Apprentices will be given all the support they need to progress and they are open to anyone who has get-up-and-go, no matter their background. There are many routes to a rewarding and successful career out there and this is certainly one of them,” added the Mayor.

As well as Customer Retention Advisor apprenticeships, Virgin Media also offers a range of other specialist roles for apprentices including Network Engineers, Service & Install Field Technicians, Data Analysts, Civil Engineers and IT Technical Sales Engineers.
