Chloe Mulligan joined Vodafone as a Project Coordinator within Project & Programmes and quickly gained a wide range of experience while working on different programmes and managing bespoke and complex elements of delivery. Having already gained a Project Management degree and relevant experience within a previous telco, Chloe had big aspirations to progress along the Professional Services career path. With the guidance of a super mentor, and support from experienced colleagues, Chloe was able to learn, experience, gather feedback and improve in the role. Her drive for progression led to a promotion to Project Specialist, where she began to cement her key learnings and most recently, Chloe’s further promotion to Project Manager.Chloe’s approach has been to never sit still or become too comfortable, she always challenged herself to improve the customer experience, delivery process, or work on revenue opportunities. Here at Vodafone, we’re passionate about allowing our employees to continuously learn and develop and Chloe has taken full advantage of that and its inspiring to see.  Just get stuck in, be inquisitive and come to the table with solutions. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and challenge the status quo if you think things can be done differently. Put the customer experience at the centre of everything you do and you’ll already be halfway there! Chloe Mulligan Inspired by Chloe’s journey and want the opportunity to work at Vodafone? Join us!

Software Engineer James D’Rozario recognised for his training, mentoring and fundraising efforts. James D’Rozario, a software engineer at Vodafone UK, has been included in the OUTstanding LGBT+ Future Leaders Role Model List 2020. OUTstanding is part of INvolve, a global network promoting diversity and inclusion in business.  James, who joined Vodafone UK as a graduate in 2017, has been instrumental in numerous initiatives both inside and outside the company. He helped establish Vodafone’s LGBT+ Friends Network in London and helped lead the company’s LGBT+ inclusion training for graduates and apprentices. Outside Vodafone, James partnered with Career Accelerator to help organise LGBT+ mentors for disadvantaged schoolchildren in London to encourage them to pursue tech careers. He has also raised more than £35,000 for LGBT+ charities, while working on podcasts for Hidayah, Mermaids and Micro Rainbow. OUTstanding’s LGBT+ Role Model Lists, which are supported by Yahoo Finance, showcase future leaders who are successful in business and also make a significant contribution to LGBT+ inclusion in the UK, Ireland, Europe, Canada and the US. James said: “Being recognised as an OUTstanding LGBT+ Role Model is not just professionally significant, but deeply personal, too. When joining Vodafone, it was my hope that sharing my personal story would inspire others to be their authentic selves.  “I have learnt self-love, confidence and a gained sense of community I’ve never experienced before, and with this external recognition I only hope to reach more LGBT+ people with my work to show that we can be both proud and successful. “I must extend a huge thank you to Vodafone’s LGBT+ Friends Network, the Diversity & Inclusion team, and Vodafone’s management for their support and encouragement. It truly does feel like together we are trailblazers for inclusivity in the technology industry.”  Vodafone UK’s efforts as a LGBT-inclusive employer have been recognised by Stonewall, which ranked the company highly in its 2020 Workplace Equality Index at number 19. Vodafone UK also supports its trans customers with help such as a simplified ‘Name Change’ process. Read More on our News Centre   Join us

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
