    My name is Ashleigh and I am currently in my final couple of months on the graduate programme. Before joining the graduate programme, I started my journey here at VMO2 on the apprenticeship scheme straight after doing my A levels at school. It was on both of these schemes that I have gained experience, knowledge and worked towards completing my financials accounting exams. Now that I am near the end of my scheme, I can’t wait to continue with a new adventure at VMO2!

    Meet Jody - Stores to Head Office

    I was lucky enough to start my career in London's Westfield Shopping Centre as a Store Leader for O2.  I have a lot of great memories from that time building a successful team, of which, many have gone on to lead their own teams. I continued to work across a number of stores in London over the next few years and at the latter part of that time, I tried to look for any opportunity to grow my network and worked on a number of projects alongside the 'day job' within my Region and Territory to develop my skills and experience further.   What I learned is if you find something that you are enthusiastic about, try to get involved whenever and at whatever level you can.
