Vodafone launches support package for jobseekers

Vodafone is launching a comprehensive support package for jobseekers in Europe, Turkey, Egypt and South Africa, combining price discounts and data offers, continued access to learning and skills with Udemy and Vodafone’s Future Jobs Finder tool.

Vodafone is also donating Facebook advertising to jobseekers in some markets, helping them to promote their profiles using Facebook banner advertising to reach hiring managers.

The new support package follows a successful initiative in the UK in November 2020 which offered unlimited 5G data, calls and texts for just £10 a month to anyone who had lost their job as a result of the pandemic. This will be extended for a further six months from today to coincide with the launch in other markets.

Alex Froment-Curtil, Vodafone Group Commercial Director, said: “For people who have found themselves out of work as a result of the pandemic, staying connected is even more critical to finding a new job, reskilling and keeping in touch during a difficult time. We know that job seekers will be under financial pressure, so our jobseekers.connected initiative is our way of helping them to find new roles, develop and learn new skills and explore new career opportunities in technology.”

The measures announced today by Vodafone include:

Connectivity offers: Vodafone is launching special connectivity offers to keep jobseekers connected and support them while they are searching for a new career opportunity. These offers will range from discounts on mobile and converged plans, free extra mobile data allowances and zero-rating access to job portals to ensure that access does not come from data allowances.

Profile promotion: Vodafone is donating Facebook advertising and media investment spend to jobseekers, enabling them to promote their profiles and highlight their CV with suitable potential employers. Candidates in participating Vodafone markets in Europe will be shortlisted online, and those selected will feature in special Facebook ‘adverts’ to reach hiring managers.

New Skills: Vodafone has extended its exclusive partnership with the global e-learning marketplace Udemy, originally launched in 2020 providing access to 600+ free, curated courses on personal growth, productivity and professional skills, and essential tech skills. This will be complemented with additional learning for career development and other local partnerships for e-learning where available.

Job Opportunities: Vodafone’s Future Jobs Finder tool is available in every Vodafone market, helping users of all ages and backgrounds to find digital or technology job opportunities and build a CV. For jobseekers whose background is in non-technology fields, Future Jobs Finder also helps identify transferable skills and strengths, giving recommendations on tech professions and e-learning suited to people’s backgrounds and aptitudes.

This is the first initiative following the launch of Vodafone’s new brand positioning – ‘Together We Can’ – demonstrating Vodafone’s belief that the partnership between technology and society can build a better future.
