Find out more about Discover Programme and what’s on offer.
There is so much to discover for graduates at Vodafone, with 20 markets where Discover Programme is on offer.
We’re a brand that loves change – if it’s not happening naturally then we’re creating it ourselves. It’s in our DNA to push forward, to create a better future, to never rest and find new ways that help people communicate. That’s the lifeblood that runs throughout Vodafone. We are driven to empower people.
We’ve come a long way since making the first ever mobile call in the UK, on the 1st of January 1985. Today, more than 403 million customers around the world choose us to look after their communications needs. In 25 years, a small mobile operator in Newbury has grown into a global business and the seventh most valuable brand in the world.
Our Code of Conduct sets out our Business Principles and how every single person at Vodafone needs to apply these. We call this Working in The Vodafone Way.
The Code also underlines our responsibilities to our people, partners and shareholders.
Designed to test your problem-solving skills, the tests will tell us whether you’re capable of working with different types of information, thinking through problems from a fresh perspective and are comfortable with complexity and explaining your thinking to others.
How passionate are you about shaping your world? That’s what we’ll be looking to find out.
We’ll also get to know you better and understand what motivates you. It’s also a great opportunity for you to ask us any questions you might have.
Taking place throughout the year, our assessment centres give you the chance to meet us and find out what life at Vodafone is really like.
The assessment day will include group exercises, presentation and an interview.
You won’t have to wait long to find out whether you’ve been offered a place on the program. We’ll let you know the news soon after the assessment.
We may even let you know on the day itself. If successful, you’ll then receive a formal offer. The next step will be getting ready to shape your world!
Innovators, strategists, thinkers, decision makers. You’ll be surrounded by the people who have made us the world’s leading telecommunications company. Together, they are part of our inspiring and inclusive culture, in which your talent will be recognised, challenged and developed. All with the aim of ensuring you realise your full potential.
Nana Okraku – South Africa
"After two years of incredible experiences and non-stop learning on the Discover Program in Ghana, I moved to Vodacom South Africa thanks to the Columbus Program. Every day I help develop innovative solutions in an environment that encourages people to challenge conventional wisdom and seize opportunities. I can’t wait to discover what tomorrow will bring!"
Matteo Barcella – Italy
"My rapid development and accomplishments are all thanks to the Discover Program. Starting my adventure with the Customer Care Sales department in Italy, I then headed to London and took responsibility for international projects within Group Technology. Today I’m managing a sales channel, leading a team to achieve the quantitative goals that will impact the success of the business."
Angela Zinser - Germany
"Taking on assignments in different business areas, the program gave me a great framework to learn and grow. I became Vodafone Germany’s youngest leader at the age of 27 - running my own team in Customer Experience. Now I’m responsible for our global leadership programme - developing around 80 leaders from 22 countries every year. At Vodafone everything is possible. You just have to go for it and be proactive."
Magdalena Gadatsch – UK
"Discover has been the perfect start for my professional career. Right from the beginning I felt that I have been challenged, stretched and been given everything I needed to develop myself. It has been amazing to become part of Vodafone and see that it really counts what you do and how you do it."
Melissa Chandler – UK
"My experience as a Vodafone graduate has been varied and fast-paced. I'm surrounded by opportunity - whether that be in launching something to market, leading new teams or organising a big charity quiz. I love the campus buzz and the massive network of exciting people at its foundation. Most of all I appreciate the responsibility graduates here are given, and I definitely feel we've made our impact this year."
