Remote onboarding: Divya's Story

"Starting a role during these unprecedented times can be extremely daunting, however, from the moment I started my application to now, I have had continuous support. The whole experience has been amazing, Gopal (Resourcing Specialist for Vodafone UK) has kept me updated along the way with regular check-ins. He made sure I had all of the relevant information and resources, needed, before my interviews and start date. 

The onboarding team sent me messages and useful blogs to read before I started as well as a countdown of the number of days until I started which made me feel very special. I was also give the onboarding teams contact details so I could ask them any questions whenever I needed, which was great. 

I had a call with my manager before I started so he could check-in and see if I had received all of my equipment. He helped me log in and set up to avoid any IT issues on my first day. I was assigned a buddy within my team, who reached out to me before I started and has since supported me. 

The wider team has given me the warmest welcome and I am very happy to be here! It has been a different experience, starting a new job from home – but I have had lots of video calls where I have been able to virtually meet the team and get to know them. The onboarding team has set up webinars where I am learning more about the business so I do not feel that I have missed out due to COVID. This has been my first virtual interview and on-boarding experience and it has been informative and very welcoming. I am grateful for the support that I have received so far and I am looking forward to my future with Vodafone!"
