Commercial Placement

From using drones to deliver medicine to rural communities, to helping bridge the digital gap for school kids across the UK and powering our European network with 100% renewable resources, we don’t just speak about change. We lead with change.

A lot has been promised over the last few years, but we know that progress doesn’t just happen after one grand statement. It comes from what we actually do. And our graduates and placement students play a huge role in that.

At Vodafone, we empower you so that your actions can speak even louder than your words. We want all our graduates and placement students to be able to make an impact on our customers, the world, and their careers.

What you need:

  • To be on track for a 2:2 in any BA/BSc/Integrated Masters degree;
  • You will also need to be in your penultimate year of study;
  • You must have the right to work in the UK for the full year.

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 Industrial Placement programmes. We will only consider your first application.
