“For ex-servicemen and women, reinventing your career can be the most challenging mission yet. That’s why we’re happy to help you join the civilian ranks.”
In March 2015 Jeroen Hoencamp, Vodafone’s UK CEO, signed the Armed Forces Covenant with the Ministry of Defence, pledging to support the Armed Forces community. The mobile phone network has created an environment where Armed Forces personnel can translate their unique skills within the company. On Vodafone’s website the company states: “Your skills and experience with teamwork, loyalty motivation, problem-solving and leadership can help us adapt to the future, serve our customers better and make a real difference to their everyday lives.”
Vodafone works with the Careers Transition Partnership (CTP), attending all the key CTP careers events, and they also run a number of web chats on different subjects.
Vodafone has a number of job opportunities for former Service men and women. Project and programme management, field engineering and supply chain and logistics roles are just some of the careers Vodafone believes ex-military personnel would be well-suited for. Vodafone offers a large variety of roles all around the country - from senior engineers to customer engagement managers.
