How to apply

Would you like to experience life working for one of the world’s most successful and innovative companies? Then your first step is to send us the following in either English or Dutch before 11 April: your resume, a motivation letter and your grade list. In your motivation letter we would like you to answer the following questions:

  • Why are you the candidate we are looking for?
  • Why do you want to work for Vodafone?
  • Why a traineeship?

When registering your account, write down your password so you do not forget it, you might need it again during the selection process. 

After we have received your resume, motivation letter and grade list we will evaluate your application. In case we see an initial match, you will be invited to do an online assessment. The score you achieve with this assessment will help us to evaluate and decide if we will invite you for one of our Discover Days on 15, 22 or 25 April. During the Discover Days you’ll have the opportunity to show us what you are capable of and last but not least: we can show you what our world and organisation looks like! If we see you have the right potential, we will invite you to the last Selection Day on 13 or 17 May.
