Technical specialist Katie Pontin is now a six-year Vodafone veteran. “I’ve always had a passion for technology, but I didn’t have a clear idea of which career path to follow,” she says.“So I joined the technology graduate programme at Vodafone. They’re always at the forefront of innovation and technology. But from the outside, you’re not aware of all the individual roles available.”After spending time in retail, corporate security and operations, Katie soon found her calling in the networks team.“Working with new technologies, getting my hands on those at the forefront of innovation, and meeting customers’ demands, takes problem solving and creativity. It’s enjoyable to work through all that and reach the end goal,” she says.  Getting hands-on experience, even if you do something wrong, that’s the best way to learn. No question is a stupid question. I’ve been really lucky to have that support to try new things and not have a fear of failure  On International Women in Engineering Day, Katie’s advice to young girls and women considering a tech career is simple: “Don’t be afraid to get involved! The roles within engineering and technology are broad, so explore the options and don’t feel like you’re expected to know everything from day one.” Read more about Katie's story and pursue a career in technology today: Read More   Apply for Tech Roles

Why did you decide to join Vodafone?“I knew about Vodafone from the media, friends and family and after some research, realised Vodafone apprenticeships offer great support to newcomers like me.  I have already learnt a huge amount and it is obvious that there are lots of future opportunities. Vodafone has admirably made a statement to give attention to females in the workplace by setting a goal of supporting female talent.  The target is to be recognised as the world’s best employer for women and this is one of the reasons why I decided to join Vodafone.” What do you do day to day? “The UK is divided into regions of which I cover the South-South Central area.  This takes me to places such as Reading, Slough, Bracknell, Guildford and Oxford.  Depending on the requirement, I collect new communication equipment from a local storage area before attending customer premises, cell sites and datacentres. There is a Service Level Agreement in place which determines the time I must complete the task.  For example, a common task I perform is to install patching (fibre cabling) into racks in the Vodafone Bracknell datacentre.I have also been assisting on a recent project by installing kit called Nokia 7250. For the Redstream Evolution project which is Vodafone’s next generation Ethernet-based aggregation network to support mobile, broadband and enterprise customer traffic from our footprint in BT exchanges. The Field Services team are delivering a large part of it!" The Field Services team I am in gives me access to a great support team and a huge area of technical knowledge which I can tap into.  What support have you received throughout your apprenticeship?“When visiting a site, I attend with another engineer who acts as my mentor.  They have also been through the apprenticeship scheme so has an understanding of what difficulties I may face.  I can call on them for technical advice and they are keen to assist where possible. We have weekly team meetings in place that we all attend to get to know the other team members, share our knowledge, as well as listen to any updates that may affect us. My manager is also one of the people who heavily supports me with regular catch ups if I have any concerns and also to see how I am progressing/developing throughout my apprenticeship.” Inspired by Jasmine’s experience?

“Hi, I’m Niru & I joined Vodafone Group as a Software Engineering Technology Graduate. I decided Vodafone would be the best place for me as the people I met during my interviewing process were genuine, supportive and kind. There is also the Vodafone Foundation which eased my decision in joining Vodafone as I knew I’d be working with a company that actively helps around the world. I wanted to do a graduate scheme as my academic background was technical, and I wanted to understand where I could use and develop technical and soft skills, while understanding the business aspects of a corporate company.   I have had a great experience since joining the graduate scheme! I’ve rotated 3 times, exploring different parts of the Vodafone Technology function. I worked on projects that involved working with a robot, learnt how to map APIs and experimented with new machine learning techniques. My highlight of the graduate scheme was running my own data science workshops both in person and virtually. The pandemic didn’t put too much strain on my learning or development with Vodafone, as they are digitally advanced in keeping productivity levels the same as working in the office and they took extra measures to make sure the graduates were not missing out on the graduate experience. I have now offboarded into a data scientist role within Group Business and I couldn't have done this without the amazing support from our HR teams, all the managers that mentored me, and all the colleagues I met that gave me advice on facilitating my career within Vodafone. I would highly recommend the graduate Tech scheme to anyone that’s willing to learn and grow in a healthy work environment and experiment with new ideas.”  If you are interested in starting out a career in technology, head over to our Early Careers page to learn more about our graduate programme and register your interest today.
