You’re Generation Possible. You don’t accept things the way they are. Neither do we. That’s how we took 4G to the Moon. Build a better future with us.

Join the Automation stream of the Vodafone Discover Graduate Programme, and you’ll be at the forefront of the 4th Industrial Revolution.

As a global tech leader, we’re changing the way the world lives and works for good. We connect millions and make all kinds of things possible. From our DreamLab app enabling people to help cure cancer while they sleep, to making the UK’s first holographic call - we’ve never stopped looking for new and better ways forward. We’ll empower you to do the same.

Automation, advanced analytics and artificial intelligence no longer live in the realms of theory and movies. These approaches and technologies are now being deployed and used by any company who wants to stay relevant and successful as the digital world evolves around us.

And, on this two-year rotational programme, you’ll help us transform the way we do business. We’ll support you to develop your skills and expertise, designing and building analytics and automation solutions for our Sales, Engineering, Operations and Support teams. These solutions will provide insights to take better, proactive business decisions and will automate tedious and repetitive tasks, freeing people up to concentrate on what we really need to focus on - better customer experience and better Vodafone network and products.
