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

As an Ally, my perception of inclusion has changed

My name is Lucia Bellanti, and I work in Vodafone Group Enterprise Commercial and Operations as an External Communications and Engagement Specialist. I first started at Vodafone as a graduate 2 years ago and have undertaken a variety of interesting roles, but it was my most recent which definitely gave me the chance to develop personally. The role allowed me to experience new opportunities and expand my thinking, for example in March 2018, I undertook a Stonewall Ally Programme. It wasn’t event meant for me, I was only there to help, but I managed to join in the group and it was one of the most eye-opening days I’ve had since joining Vodafone. The whole day aimed to explore what it means to be an authentic and inclusive ally to LGBT+ people in the workplace. I come from what I thought was quite an open background but, it turns out, living in a small village in Italy isn’t that open-minded as I thought, and I had loads of biases that I didn’t even realise. I didn’t know half of the terms Stonewall explained to us on the day or that LGBT+ people had to face so many issues when entering the workplace. At the end of the day, I was able to acknowledge what my biases were and how to act on them. We all made a pledge as active allies and mine was “As an LGBT Ally, I am supportive and the one thing I commit to is making my graduate community aware of this session and the change each one of us can make for LGBT”. A few months later, Vodafone commissioned an international research from Out Now surveying more than 3,000 LGBT+ young people across 15 countries and multiple industries, and found that; "31% of LGBT people admitted they went back into the closet when they started their first job. This figure rises to 41% among 18-25 year olds”.  This data was shocking to many, myself included. For this reason and to act on my pledge, we decided to partner with Stonewall to hold a full day of training with our 400 UK-based Graduates, Columbus graduates and Apprentices across all streams, which we named LGBT: Discover Inclusive Leadership. We want to make the most of our youth community because as Vodafone’s future leaders, we want to leverage this diversity to build an inclusive culture, where everyone is respected, can be themselves and strive to be their best. That way we can create a better future for our employees, our partners, the communities we work in and our customers. This is a pioneering programme as it covers LGBT+ and the power of allies in one session. It gives our youth the knowledge to speak confidently about LGBT+ inclusion and helps them to identify practical ways to ensure that everyone they work with is able to reach their full potential. I can definitely say that organising these days, has been one of my proudest moments at Vodafone and I’m so glad I was given the chance to make it happen. As an Ally, my perception of inclusion has definitely changed and the way I consider minorities, not just LGBT+, in the workplace and outside it has definitely changed thanks to this training. Because of this, I’ve also had the opportunity to meet so many amazing people that have shared their experiences with me and helped me throughout this personal journey. My advice to everyone is: if you think you’re already an inclusive and accepting person, challenge yourself and learn more, you can always be more inclusive!

My journey at Vodafone started in 2013 when I joined the company on the UK graduate scheme. I'd previously studied geography at Nottingham university and took a year out to travel & came back ready to kick off my career in telecoms!  I chose Vodafone over a few other schemes because I thoroughly enjoyed previous experiences in other telecoms roles & the fast paced nature of the industry. Vodafone's approach was also extremely appealing, offering a wide range of opportunities across the business  to develop my skill set. My first placement In Vodafone was a customer experience role. The reason I applied for this role was because I wanted to put the knowledge I gained in our front line placement to good use. I primarily worked with the consumer business to improve experiences for customers and it's great to still see how key the team are to the business four years later!  My aim from the start was to get a holistic view of the business and this was the key reason I then moved over to our enterprise business to undertake a go to market role. This role gave me a lot of exposure to different teams around EBU and an understanding of how the business works. As part of this, I had additional roles owning projects & directly updating the head of the department showing how much responsibility and accountability Vodafone gives you even as a graduate. After this placement, I moved over to our consumer business, undertaking product manager roles for pay monthly and pay as you go products. For me, this was the last piece of the puzzle as I had then covered three key areas of the business, customer operations, consumer and then enterprise. Roles such as product management make you feel extremely empowered as you're accountable for the customer experience, strategy and commercial performance of a product impacting a huge amount of customers & I honestly feel you wouldn't get this level of experience anywhere else a few years into your career. This show the level of trust management and the company put into you. Last year I made the choice to move into our customer services & innovation team- notably working as a proposition manager in the new consumer IOT proposition. I have always had a keen interest in IOT since joining Vodafone, particularly because it transforms the way people live their lives. The fact Vodafone is a market leader and has unique capability in IOT means that the opportunity is huge and this is illustrated through the exponential growth over the last few years. The opportunity to develop an IOT proposition strategy from scratch & execute this in the UK was extremely appealing. I thoroughly enjoy working in the team- no one day is the same and it's extremely fast paced! As a team, we have the ability to really differentiate Vodafone from the competition through propositions such as partnerships with Netflix, Spotify etc as well as innovative products such as IoT.  It's great time to be a part of the telecoms industry and the innovation team with a lot of movement in the industry. If you're open to change, willing to learn, ambitious, and flexible  then Vodafone is a great fit for you. There's lots of talented individuals, a great culture, with a great work-life balance and trust in you which makes you feel empowered to succeed in your role!
