We’re building Tomorrow’s Connections Today, bringing people together through the power of technology. Liberty Global’s businesses connect over 85 million subscribers across the UK and Europe. We’re creating national champions, operating under brands such as Virgin Media O2 in the UK, Vodafone Ziggo in The Netherlands, Telenet in Belgium, Sunrise in Switzerland, Virgin Media in Ireland and UPC in Slovakia.
We also have a portfolio in more than 75 companies and funds in areas such as content, technology and infrastructure, including investments in companies like ITV, Univision, Plume, Lionsgate and the Formula E racing series. We’re crafting a dynamic family of brands in the pursuit of innovation and excellence.
It’s a fast-moving, dynamic business environment – with Finance at the centre of everything we do, striving to achieve optimal returns on capital, deliver an efficient control and planning framework, and drive our levered equity strategy.
Join us on our dedicated graduate scheme, and you’ll gain in-depth experience of our Finance operation, while developing your expertise, studying for the internationally recognised CIMA professional qualification, laying the groundwork for a future leadership career and earning a salary of £40,000!
What to expect
Our scheme consists of three 12-month rotations across a range of departments including:
- Capital Allocation & Business Control
- Audit, Risk & Compliance
- Finance Operations
- Group Reporting & Technical Accounting
- Facilities & Fleet
You’ll start off by building your core understanding of the structure, processes, and systems of Finance, before moving into roles within our UK and European operating companies and ventures and finally gaining experience in more specialist areas like Treasury, Strategy and M&A.
We will also fully fund and support you to achieve your CIMA qualification. This will be completed through an apprenticeship, with generous study leave and pay progression that are both above industry standards. Alongside a CIMA qualification, you will follow a solid learning and development curriculum to help you build valuable business & soft skills. Courses will include presentation training, effective business writing, partner management & many more.
“A key moment from my time at Liberty Global is that I was given a very big project on one of my first days, not only was it the project itself but it was the trust I was given from day one. My first project was to investigate new technology vendors within the automation and robotics area and whittle initial research of 40 vendors down to three key vendors which are now used within the automation space in the Shared Service Centre.”
Jack Robertson, Finance Graduate
What we look for
We’re looking for graduates with a growth mindset, and keen to spread their wings to another country during, and beyond, the scheme.

We’re more interested in your qualities rather than specific qualifications. Other qualities we would like in graduates include:
- Highly analytical approach
- Confident enough to question
