Vodafone was love at first sight for me. I started as a graduate at Vodafone Albania in 2013, as one of the winners of the Discovery Programme for that year. Since then, I have made many connections that transformed into friendships, many mistakes that transformed into lessons learned, and many successes that transformed into a career.
My progress is a clear example of how the opportunities, support and culture at Vodafone develop young careers. Firstly, the company culture is so welcoming and accepting regardless of your age, gender, nationality or religion. Our spirit of ‘getting it done together’ is always clear — you will always be supported by your colleagues. Secondly, as it’s such a large and international organisation, you can always find opportunities that will fit in with your goals. And last but not least, at Vodafone you always get the chance to use the latest technologies and methodologies because innovation is at the core of this company.
I’ve had multiple roles in D&A, across different domains. On project after project, I built up my experience until I was promoted to a people manager role, leading the Corporate & Analytics team for Vodafone Albania. My ambition was to one day be part of an even larger-scale project, working across many countries, which ultimately led me to move to my current position in Vodafone Group.
I’m working on the Nucleus programme at the moment. Everything I’ve worked on at Vodafone has been important, but this is the most exciting one so far. Through Nucleus we are creating a centralised BI solution for all our markets, ensuring a single source of truth for our data and using the latest technology stack offered by Google to do it. I wanted to be part of it from the moment I heard about it, due to the scale and impact of its implementation for both Group and each individual market. I am loving it!
