Vodafone Ireland is delighted to be taking part in the DCU STEM Student Internship in 2021, for the third year.

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 the ISPCC.


Here at Vodafone, we are much more than a total communications company, we aim to connect everybody so that we can live better today and build a better tomorrow.

Have a look inside our offices in Leopardstown here

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, this internship programme will provide flexible working options to suit the student’s needs, be it fully remote working, or a blended experience, we will work with all successful candidates to find a way of working that works for them.


Interns will have the opportunity to work in our Technology or Business areas to gain a greater insight into how

STEM subjects can be used in the workplace. 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, 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.




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. Below is a flavour of some of the teams an intern will be involved with day-to-day in the Technology department.


Transmission and Property


The transmission department deals with network roll out, microwave technologies and supplier and vendor management. An intern will gain a deeper insight into how the Vodafone network operates in terms of fibre and microwave connections supplying our users with internet connectivity.

The Property team within Technology handles all properties where Vodafone has equipment mounted such as cell towers and masts. We own or rent these sites and the team manages their day-to-day problems as well as site decommissions and acquisitions.


Network Analytics and Performance

There are a variety of teams that look after the performance and analytics of the fixed and mobile network. Day-to-day tasks include analysing Key Performance Indicators like traffic and congestion across the 2G, 3G and 4G technologies. Teams work to investigate network issues through Data Analytics, and then implement fixes and improvement through network feature rollouts.

Another key aspect of Network Performance is to monitor and react to any incidents that may occur on the network. Teams work around the clock to ensure incidents can be dealt with in an efficient and timely manner.

Technology IT

IT oversee and manage the end-to-end development, maintenance, and support of our technical estate responding to Business, Market, and Regulatory drivers of change. This includes, but is not limited to our Billing, CRM, and Care applications. IT is comprised of a number of elements: Demand (assessment, definition & estimation of changes), Delivery (implementation of changes) & Operations (maintenance of implemented changes).



B2B, otherwise known as Enterprise, manages our business customers, offering fixed, mobile and converged services. So whether its 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. Functional areas within the Business Unit that you will have the opportunity to work with include:

Product and Digital Marketing

The Product team are responsible for designing and delivering these solutions to cater to our customers’ needs. The Product team will also work alongside our Digital Marketing team to ensure the best visibility of our products and solutions so that our customers can easily find the information they need in a format that works for them.


The complexity of a Business solution means that Vodafone need to be involved in the delivery of our products from start to finish, our delivery team ensure that orders are submitted correctly and customer sites are technically ready for installation, followed by install and configuration support of the technical kit that customers require for the product that they have bought.


With the rapid shifts in technologies available, Vodafone are constantly evolving their networks, products and ways of working. So much so that we have a dedicated functional area for transformation that ensures both internal teams and our business customers are ready for the changes. Whether it’s a small change to the way they access their bill online, to a change in the network and how we deliver a phone call to their site Vodafone will ensure that this is done in a smooth and efficient way that causes minimum disruption to our customers business.
