We partnered with Career Accelerator to provide opportunities for diverse and underrepresented students. By matching them with a Vodafone mentor, they gained valuable insight and guidance at a crucial time in their early careers, as well as an opportunity to explore working life in a tech company.

The programme ran in 2021 and has been a great success, matching 84 students to mentors with 100% of them saying that their experience has led to them having more positive views about working in the tech sector. It’s also a great opportunity for our Vodafone employees to gain professional development for themselves whilst also helping to shape the talent of the future!

We look forward to strengthening the partnership in the future and helping more youth talent  to carve out a career in technology.
