Recruiter detailsCompany Name: VodafoneCompany Description:
We’ve come a long way since making the first ever mobile call in the UK on 1 January 1985. Today, more than 500 million customers around the world choose us.

In 30 years, a small mobile operator in Newbury has grown into a global business and one of the most valuable brands in the world. We now operate in around 30 countries and partner with networks in over 50 more.

In an increasingly connected world, it’s no longer just about being able to talk and text. Our network allows people to share images and videos as soon as they’re captured; to share thoughts and feelings as soon as they’re created. And because we now do more than just mobile in many markets, more customers look to Vodafone for great value in their fixed line and broadband services too.

Vodafone understands that businesses need a communications partner with solutions that scale and adapt as their business needs change. They may need a few smart phones for voice and email on the move. Or they may require a fully integrated solution that enables sharing of documents, video conferencing and access to corporate applications from any location. Whatever their size and whatever their need, we are constantly looking for new, innovative ways to help our business customers grasp every opportunity in a simple and straightforward way.
