Job Description

Consumer Discover Graduate Programme

Duration of Programme: 2 years - rotational placement programme
Salary: We offer a generous starting salary and annual bonus

•    You must also have the correct right to work documentation in place for the full programme duration. We do not accept the Graduate Route Visa.  

Application close date: 31st October, however, we may close earlier if we have enough game-changing applications, so apply early. 

What you need to submit: You will only need to upload your CV as part of the application. You do not need to upload a cover letter as it will not be reviewed as part of your application.   

*Remote working options: Vodafone is transforming – in the way we work & how we work. Our offices are now used as a hub for collaboration, co-creation & even concentration spaces. Across most our roles, we expect our employees to be following a blended approach to working with a 60-40 split, the majority being at home. We encourage our employees to find a way of working that suits them and works best for the team.  

Please note that you can only make one application to one of our Discover programmes for 2022. We will only consider your first application.
