Vodafone

Host Introduction

This internship programme provides third level students a placement opportunity here in Vodafone, over a 3 month period. This is a paid placement allowing students to gain experience working in a digital telco, to develop their existing skills and to gain new ones. Vodafone Ireland connects 2.3 million customers every day and is the single biggest investor in technology in the telecoms industry in Ireland.

Vodafone has also been voted one of the best places to work in Ireland, is the official sponsor of the Irish Rugby team and has a charity partnership with ALONE and Active Retirement Ireland. At Vodafone (10,001+ employees), we are known for our technology, but the truth is, it is humanity that drives our business forward. With the global pandemic raising so many questions for tech brands, it has highlighted the leading role that we need to play. We believe that, when working together, humanity and technology can find the answers and create a better future for all.

Working at Vodafone is all about helping people feel ready to benefit from new technology. We bring the future to even the most remote places, using technology to help families in disaster zones, showing young people that a phone is not just for fun and thinking about technology that doesn’t even exist yet. More than 35 years ago, we made the first-ever mobile phone call, we sent the first SMS in Britain and have been changing the lives of billions of people ever since. Now, we are using smartphones to fight cancer, big data for social good, and we aim to connect over 250 million people to our next generation networks by 2025.

We are passionate about building a workplace where you can truly be yourself, share inspiration, embrace new opportunities, thrive and make a real difference to people and our planet. We are known for our technology, but it is humanity that drives us forward.

STEM Teacher Intern Role

STInt Interns will have the opportunity to work in our Technology or Business areas to gain greater insight into how STEM subjects can be used in the workplace. STInt Interns will be given the responsibility of owning specific activities within a project end to end and be responsible for that specific portion of the project so that they can finish the programme with a clear deliverable.

Whilst on the Internship programme, STInt Interns will have access to a full L&D plan allowing each student to gain skills in different areas and upskill in specific skills that are relevant to their area. The intern will gain a holistic view to Vodafone and will therefore be encouraged to spend half days in different business units to see how Vodafone operates as a whole.

Technology
Our Technology business unit is one of the largest in the organisation, which looks after our network and IT structure within the organisation. Technical skills such as engineering, coding, and data handling are used within this unit to ensure that we provide the best technical service to our customers in both mobile and fixed line. The student Intern will gain hands on experience working within our many different teams in technology from IT security, data analytics and our core network. This will allow the intern to have a greater insight into how we operate as a digital telco and how customers are able to use our service for Voice and data services through both their mobiles and their home broadband. There are a number of different functions within Technology, which are crucial to the success of Vodafone.

Business
B2B, otherwise known as Enterprise, manages our business customers, offering fixed, mobile and converged services. So whether it’s a budding start up, or a seasoned multinational corporation – we’re always on hand to help. We are revolutionising how our business customers use voice, messaging, data and fixed-line solutions to ensure they are ready for today. Most importantly, though – we’re boldly paving the way for the future, especially when it comes to new ideas and ground-breaking digital technology! You will be working to help revolutionise how businesses and public sector institutions are confidently connected.
