Virgin Media O2 Creating 100 Apprenticeships & 300 New Jobs In The UK

Freshly-merged Virgin Media O2 has announced plans to create 100 apprenticeships and 300 new jobs in the United Kingdom.

The 400 vacancies are to be filled by the end of this year and the telecoms firm is encouraging more women to apply for the positions in an effort to get more females into the tech and engineering sector.

300 of the vacancies are for field engineers, whilst a further 100 new recruits will work in retail jobs at O2 stores throughout the UK.

The 100 apprentices will work towards a Level 2 Telecoms Operative Apprenticeship qualification and full training will be provided by Virgin Media O2 for all of the roles.

Announcing the recruitment drive, Virgin Media O2’s Director of People Partnering, Talent and Careers, Nicola Moore, said: “We’re delighted to offer hundreds of roles across the UK to give people the chance to start a new career in an exciting, fast-paced industry at the cutting edge of technology. Young people have a huge amount to offer in the workplace.”

“Our research shows that as true digital natives, Gen Z are drawn to careers in tech and engineering, but there is still a stark gender divide to overcome. We’ll continue to nurture and invest in talent as they enter the job market. And it’s so important that women know that this is absolutely a career path for them. We’ll provide the training and support all successful applicants need to succeed,” said Ms Moore.

Virgin Media O2’s Chief Commercial Officer, Gareth Turpin, also commented, saying::“As a customer-first business, we offer the very best service and expertise to everyone however they need us. The retail positions we’re recruiting play a vital role in supporting and serving our customers as they continue to return to the high street. We welcome applications from anyone with a passion for helping others and a love for technology, those who are eager to learn and deliver the very best customer experience.”

“It’s an exciting time to join Virgin Media O2. Whether it’s customer service jobs in the North West, Field Engineering roles in the South East, or retail positions in Scotland, investment in our people across the business is helping us on our mission to upgrade the UK and do more for our customers at a time when connectivity has never been more essential,” added Mr Turpin.
