Why I love working for Vodafone
I have been working in Retail for over 21 years, 13 of which have been with Vodafone. Vodafone has always been the crème de la crème of mobile telecommunications, and so when the opportunity was presented to join, I absolutely jumped at the chance. Vodafone has offered me the training and development that I was hungry for.
I started my retail journey with Vodafone as a store manager in a smaller store, I have never worked in telecommunications before, but right from the start I was fully supported and developed, with the team I had around me and the training days that I was sent on to learn the Vodafone way. If you are looking for a company that supports your growth on a personal and a professional level, then Vodafone is where you want to be.
Over my 13 years I have always been encouraged to take on new projects to stretch and develop my skills, by doing this no one day has ever been the same. I was promoted to multi-site Manager, which helped me to develop a skills set that I did not know I had, it allowed me to work with different teams and different areas. Here is where I noticed that Vodafone as a company encourages you to take further steps in your career but they also recognise and respects those that do not wish to further their career. I moved to being an Elite Manager here is where my role changed significantly but with smooth transition, this role fully prepared me for the role I have now.
What I love the most about Vodafone is that every day has been different in the 13 years I have worked for them, I have never felt ‘fed up’ with my job, it has been hard work and challenging at times but what makes it great that I have always felt supported by the teams around me.
I am now a Regional Manager and I look after 23 stores. I believe that my 13 years’ experience has allowed me to build bridges with my teams to make them feel engaged and as passionate as I do about Vodafone. I love that my experience is now allowing me to help and support others getting them where they want to be as my team is my greatest passion. Even in this role I am still supported to develop and be the very best that I can be, helping me to grow to take the next steps in my Vodafone career. I work with very best leadership team, who although have their own regions work tirelessly to support one another making us one fantastic super team.
