4. How well organised/structured is your programme?

6/10

The programme is well structured but we have had a few setbacks as the training dates kept changing and had no consistency.

5. How much support do you receive from your employer?

10/10

Fellow engineers at Virgin Media are really supportive and help me if ever I am in need. I always know I can rely on their support.

6. How much support do you receive from your training provider when working towards your qualifications?

6/10

We have training sessions every month but they have been remote so sometimes it has been difficult to grasp all the information.

7. How well do you feel that your qualification (through your training provider) helps you to perform better in your role?

6/10

The information is quite general and more related to IT than our technical site build department so I would say it doesn't help a great deal.

8. Are there extra-curricular activities to get involved in at your work? (For example, any social activities, sports teams, or even professional networking events.)

9/10

Yes we have regular meetings with members of other teams and even have word puzzles and quizzes every week.

9a. Would you recommend Virgin Media to a friend?

Yes

9b. Why?

It is a great employer and you will get all the support you need along with great benefits.

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Virgin Media?

Always be yourself and try to enjoy the job you are applying for.
