Who are our Activation Engineers?
They’re the experts responsible for building and activating expansions to our network, which is currently the largest in the UK and Europe. With their help, we continue to bring Virgin Media into more homes and businesses than ever before.
Let’s talk about what you’ll be doing…
You’ll be working to ensure new network infrastructure is built on time, within budget and to the required standard. Among other things, this will involve working closely with build, planning and delivery teams in the field to resolve any potential issues and keep delays to a minimum.
…and what you’re going to learn...
Over the course of the apprenticeship, you will have opportunities to develop a broad range of technical knowledge and skills. Key areas you will build expertise in include:

- Headend-related architecture
How are you going to get there?

The job involves liaising with lots of different people and teams, so it helps if you have strong communication and influencing skills. You’ll also need a full driving licence so you can travel between sites. By the end of the apprenticeship, your scheme mentor and workmates will have helped you add lots more capabilities to your locker, along with the experience and understanding you need to kickstart a successful career.
