During the lockdown, we continued to hire across the globe. We’ve continued to conduct interviews and we’ve continued to welcome new members into our teams. But this time it’s virtual.  Since the start of lockdown our digital journeys have been accelerated. We have welcomed over 345 new joiners in Vodafone Group-UK, alone. Our face-to-face interviews have moved to Skype and although many of our assessments were already online, more focus has gone into upskilling recruiters and improving the virtual assessment experience.  A lot has changed. Not just for our recruiting teams, but for our new joiners as well. Imagine joining a company without physically meeting anyone. Without ever stepping foot in your office. This has been the reality for many employees around the world. As we went into lockdown, we asked our new joiners to document their experience of joining a company virtually. We wanted to hear the truth about their excitement and concern in these uncertain times, and it’s been great to see from their video logs, that the experience has been positive.  This is how we #StayConnected while we #StayHome. In order to accommodate our new virtual lives, all of our new joiners are now invited to a virtual-induction which is spread out over the first week. They receive their IT equipment before day one, with clear guidance on how to set it up, and are involved in a week full of various activities and sessions to help them get started, feel included and get to know Vodafone better. Our employees have been inventing new ways to continue regular work-life, from home. From virtual cafés to surprise birthday cake deliveries. There are some perks to working from home. Like popping to your favourite bakery in between meetings or soaking up some well-needed vitamin D on a beautiful day. In many ways, these uninvited circumstances have brought us together in ways we didn’t expect. We’ve seen virtual yoga sessions, global webinars, we’ve even shifted from cards to videos for birthdays and those leaving us.  We appreciate these times are hard on everyone, but if you are currently looking for a new start, know that our recruitment process is all ready to go, from home. Check out our available opportunities now.  Search Careers

The level of exposure to projects and opportunities that I have experienced in my first year at Vodafone I believe is not something you would find anywhere else.  by Chloe Bruce  Hi I’m Chloe and I am a Data Analyst Apprentice working in the BI and Data Visualization team in Group Technology. Having received offers to study Business Accounting at university following the completion of my A-Levels, I decided an apprenticeship was a more suitable route for me. The opportunity for career progression whilst studying at the same time is what drove my decision. Before joining Vodafone, I was accepted onto a school leaver programme working in an audit role for a year and a half, at which point I decided it was not for me. Living locally to the Newbury HQ, I always had the desire to work for Vodafone given their reputation as a large corporate company. More specifically I have always wanted to work in the technology space due to its dynamic and innovative environment. When the opportunity came up to join the Data Analyst Apprenticeship programme here at Vodafone I thought it was one I couldn’t pass up.Compared to my previous experiences the culture and work life balance at Vodafone is unparalleled. Having to balance studying towards a Digital and Technology Solutions degree and my everyday role within my team at Vodafone, something quite daunting, has been made easy for me. My team have been very supportive and proactive in helping me to be successful on this apprenticeship programme. I used to play woman’s football at a semi-professional level something that I gave up due to previous work commitments, however since joining Vodafone this is something I have considered getting back into, as the work life balance here would allow me to commit to both. So far I am most proud of my work and contribution to the Data Quality Project. It has given me the opportunity to understand the benefits and business requirements of the project, right through to the implementation of the solution to our local markets. The level of exposure to projects and opportunities that I have experienced in my first year at Vodafone I believe is not something you would find anywhere else.
