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.
It’s a fast-moving, dynamic business environment – and our People and Communication function sit right in the heart of it all, driving a diverse and inclusive culture, growing our leaders of today and tomorrow, and providing opportunities for our talent to grow across our global network of brands.
Join us on our dedicated graduate scheme, and you’ll gain in-depth experience of our People and Communications operation, while developing your expertise, working on real projects with impact, and laying the groundwork for a future leadership career!
What to expect
Our scheme consists of two six-month rotations and two twelve-month rotations across a range of People functions, including:
- Talent & Leadership Development
- Strategic Planning & Transformation
- Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
- Culture & Communications
- HR Business Partnering & Service Delivery
- Early Careers
Throughout your 3 years you’ll rotate through four different teams within the People and Communication functions across our entire global federation: this means you’ll have the opportunity to rotate across different countries, sectors and organisations.
We will also fully fund and support you to achieve your CIPD level 7 qualification. Alongside a CIPD qualification, you will follow a comprehensive learning and development curriculum to help you build valuable business & soft skills.
“One of the main reasons that I applied for Liberty Global was due to the opportunities that are available for the graduates. For example, graduates are able to move internationally as a part of their rotations. I was also really interested in what Liberty Global does. Alongside owning some big name companies, such as Virgin Media O2, they also invest in some really cool initiatives like Formula E.”
