One of our priorities has always been to reflect our diverse customer community with an equally diverse group of employees and in 2017, we set ourselves the aim of operating with a gender equal team by 2025.
Striving hard to accomplish this we have launched our latest campaign LevellingtheField -with the aim of attracting more female Residential Field Technicians.
Right now, we have a number of roles which are open to men and women. We are encouraging women to apply because our female workforce is less represented in this area. Therefore, it’s super important for us to reflect the communities that we serve not just for Field Technicians but also for STEM roles in general and this is just the beginning.
It’s all about getting the best from a diverse workforce and encouraging more women to bring their skills to tech-based roles, which is why we’re looking for proactive tech-lovers to join us as Residential Field Technicians.
To be clear, we welcome applications from everyone, not just females. Click apply if you’re interested, we’d love to hear from you!
So what is a Residential Field Technician? They’re the people that connect our customer to everything that matters to them. They go into customers’ homes to install and repair our products, sharing advice and tips on how to get the very best out of those products.
Bringing the unexpected to our customers with heartfelt service you’ll go the extra mile to make sure they like Virgin Media just as much as you do.
You don’t need any technical experience beyond an interest in Telecoms, IT or electrics. Our training programme will get you up to speed. Then, it’ll be a case of grabbing your van and visiting customers.
When you join, you will be given comprehensive training in the role, and of course given on-going support, you can trust us to do the right thing by you. We want to set you on a fascinating career path where every day is different, whilst building connections with some really interesting people.
Who we’re looking for
If you have a logical approach to solving problems and get a buzz out of helping people along with an interest in technology such as smartphones, tablets and PCs, this could be the role for you. You’ll need:
A full, valid UK driving license
To be comfortable speaking with our customers face to face and over the phone
A logical approach to work and problem solving
The willingness to work outside in all weathers
- An understanding of working safely at heights, and to be comfortable doing so
Customer service experience would help but isn’t essential by any means.
What’s in it for you
There’s great training and lots of opportunities to move into more senior roles. Plus, we’ve made sure the rest of the package is really impressive too.
25 days’ holiday, plus three extra days when you’ve been here five years
Your birthday off, every year!
A generous contributory pension
- Discounts on our broadband, mobile, voice and media services, and money off other Virgin Group products, services and experiences
