It you want to become a business leader in an organisation at the cutting edge of technology, then look no further.
Areas you could find yourself working in:
Internet of Things
Vodafone Internet-of-Things (IoT) is connecting our customers’ products and equipment, turning them into ‘smart’ assets which communicate automatically with each other and with their surroundings. Some of our Discover graduates work in the sales team and are responsible for working with colleagues to grow revenues by consulting with large global companies. They work directly with a salesperson on a daily basis, having the opportunity to give live product demonstrations to potential customers and becoming a product expert over time.
Cloud and Hosting
Our global Cloud and Hosting business is entering an exciting chapter as we rapidly grow and transform how we impact our customers. One of our Discover graduates is a Marketing Specialist responsible for supporting global sales and marketing leaders within Vodafone, driving the engagement rates of regional sales enablement tools and working with marketing agencies to create memorable campaigns that will generate new business and drive sell/upsell opportunities.
Security is a high profile and continually expanding technology field, required to meet an ever increasing threat environment. One of our Discover graduates works as a Security Programme Management Analyst responsible for working with colleagues across the business to identify Technical Security Baseline (TSB) requirements, formulating a process to track and report compliance and leading on an improvement strategy.
The Group Enterprise Operations team has 1,700 people based in eight locations across the world and is responsible for the ‘in-life’ service operations for each and every Vodafone Global Enterprise customer.
