What we’re looking for

Application process

When you apply for the Vodafone Graduate Programme, you will be asked to fill out an application form. This allows us to get to know you and your background of experience! You will attach your CV here so make sure it is in top shape!


Next step is psychometric testing. This allows us to see if you are the right match for the Vodafone culture! The Vodafone culture is all about the way you work to solve problems! You will learn more about the Vodafone Way if you are successful with your application and you will discover that we are not just interested in what you do, but how you do it!

Successful candidates will then be asked to do a video interview. You will have a 15 - 20 minute video interview. It would be really beneficial to think about why Vodafone is the right place for you - we think it's great here but we want to know why you want to join us. The video will start and questions will appear. You will have time to answer and record your answer. Make sure you do it in a quiet place where you won’t be interrupted!

It’s useful to structure your answers using the STAR technique (Situation, Task, Action, Result). We are looking for you to explain a little bit about the situation you were in, the task you were trying to complete, the action you personally took to get to a resolution, and the result of your efforts. This helps us to really understand the example you're referring to.

The last round is the Experience Stage where you will be invited to our assessment centres that include an interview and team work exercises!

Please note that the Vodafone Ireland Graduate Programme does not sponsor visas and that we are only able to accept certain types of student visas. If you require visa sponsorship, we strongly recommend that you consult the relevant section of the Department of Justice webpage to determine your suitability for an Irish visa.

We are committed to promoting Inclusion for All with the belief that diversity plays an important role in the success of our business. We actively encourage everyone to consider becoming a part of our journey.
