2013 Vodafone Foundation’s ‘World of Difference’ Application
Unbelievable, but true. Imagine getting paid (Up to $70,000 salary and up to $15,000 expenses) to leave your job for a year and go and work for the charity of your choice. If you’d like to be considered, just fill in the form below (OK…’just’ might be an over-simplification, but hey, we’re talking about a whole year’s Paid Charity Leave.
The Vodafone Foundation’s World of Difference has been running for more than 10 years in 22 countries. The charity you choose can be your own charity, or a charity that you’ve always dreamt of working for full time. Either way, as long as the charity has ‘Deductible Gift Recipient status Item 1 (sounds complicated, but it’s not - check with the charity if you’re not sure), your application will be considered.
By the way, before you start nominating yourself to build classrooms for Bedouin children in the Sahara, we probably should mention that we’re keen to do our bit here at home - please make sure the charity you want to work for is located and operates in Australia.
Now for the challenging part. All applicants must complete a written submission. Please keep your applications between 500 to 2,000 words. If you’d like more information (or possibly some inspiration from our previous participants), please go to the Vodafone Australia Facebook page and click the Vodafone Foundation tab.
NOTE: After you put your application in, you’ll get an automated response to confirm we’ve received it (so you won’t have to endure that niggling worry of all your hard work being possibly lost somewhere in cyberspace). If you make the short-list for the next round of the selection process (yippee!), you’ll be contacted by 18 March 2013.
For absolutely all the details on applying for the program, check out Terms & Conditions.
If you have any questions about your application, send them through to us at Vodafone.Foundation@Vodafone.com.au
