We look for staff who genuinely want to help customers get the most out of their gadgets. If you’ve got a passion for all things technology and have a knack for explaining things in just the right way, we’d love you to be a part of our retail team.
Retail is all about connecting with customers by asking smart questions. Whereas some customers have a clear idea of what they want, others need much more guidance. It’s your job to listen intently and consider the customer thought process.
Join Vodafone and we’ll support and encourage you every single step of the way. If you’ve got sales experience that’s brilliant, but if not, don’t rule yourself out.

Bring all of that to the table, and you can look forward to one of the best hourly rates on the high street along with stacks of other great benefits and discounts.

Full and Part Time Retail Adviser
Are you a great listener who’s passionate about meeting new people and understanding their needs? As a Retail adviser, you’ll help our customers get the most out of their technology. You need to be motivated and resilient and you’ll be working to a number of team and individual targets. We’ll support and encourage you every step of the way with training, one of the best hourly rates on the high street, and stacks of other great benefits and discounts.
Working as a Technology Expert, you’ll be kept on your toes. From supporting and educating a customer around setting up their devices, to diagnosing and organising repair of faulty devices.
It’s as much about understanding the customer as it is about understanding the technology and how our customers use it. Once you know what someone wants to do with their phone, you can show them how to make the most of it. Which might include what other products and services could enhance their experience.
Our Technology experts also usually act as an assistant manager to support the Store Manager, so you need to be comfortable coaching others and helping them to be their best.

Our store managers lead by example, creating a workplace full of motivated, energised people who always give our customers the best possible experience. We’ll reward you with a great salary, benefits and bonus opportunities, plus the chance to keep moving upwards and on wards.
If you’re a senior manager who relishes the challenge of improving the customer experience while hitting targets, we’ll help you take your career to exciting new places, with structured development and international secondments.
You’ll work on a variety of projects, from new product launches to major national events, all the time building rapport with store managers and staff to keep the team spirit strong.
