Vodafone has been challenging the way telcos do things since we entered the Australian market in 1993. We believe that doing the right thing by customers gets the best results for our business. Our game-changing $5 Roaming and infinite data (at speeds of up to 1.5Mbps until expiry) on selected Prepaid Plus are just a couple of examples of how we’ve delivered a better deal to our customers. We’re also committed to driving increased competition and coverage in regional Australia. You can find out more on our blog.
We’re a technology company but we never forget that its people using our technology to live, work, play, connect, roam and explore. Our purpose is to give Australians choice and freedom to connect the way they want. Our culture empowers our people to challenge the status quo and make a difference to people every day.
Technology and customer needs are constantly changing and it’s our job to change with them. There are a multitude of ways that our people help shape the future of customer experience and our business such as:
IoT is the future of telco and our Connectivity Platform uses world-leading technology along with a team of experts to bring total connectivity into people’s homes and businesses. Our proven expertise means we can confidently connect our customers now and in the future.
When our people are at their best we get the best results for our customers and for the business. We’re committed to creating a culture that enables performance through regular conversations, workplace flexibility, empowered leadership, loads of award-winning learning and development; and, rewards and recognition that show our appreciation for everything our people do.
Enabling your performance
All our people are encouraged to focus on their ambitions, future growth and development through our Enabling Performance program. The focus is on regular conversations with your manager, clear goals that ladder up to our purpose priorities as a business, and two-way feedback enabling your progress and growth.

LGBTQI+ & Friends Network
Launched in 2017, Our LGBTQI+ & Friends network, Connect, proudly promotes equality and individuality. The network creates a community of LGBTQI+ employees and advises our business on how we can be more supportive of everyone. To support the wider community, we sponsored the lifetime achievement award at the 2017 and 2018 Australian LGBTI Awards. We also support Wear It Purple, National Coming Out Day, and promoted equality in the 2017 marriage postal vote. From 2018 to 2021, we were the official and exclusive mobile services sponsor of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. We also partner with Pride in Diversity to promote diversity within the company.
Support for Trans and Gender Diverse Candidates
At Vodafone, we are committed to creating a safe, respectful, and inclusive environment and we welcome applications from all diverse backgrounds, experiences, identities, and abilities. We recognise that in some cases individuals may benefit from additional support – that’s why we have developed this guide to assist our trans and gender diverse applicants.
We’re passionate about creating equal opportunities for our people and are taking a strong lead to positively influence gender equality through our Connected We Can Network, an employee resource group dedicated to accelerating gender equality at Vodafone. Our partnership with Coder Academy has seen us launch exciting programs such as Code Her and Code Next that aim to empower young females to pursue Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) careers. Our business is committed to ensuring that we have equal gender representation and gender equity which is why we were awarded with the Workplace Gender Equality Agency’s Employer of Choice for Gender Equality citation.
We recognise that all our people have life goals as well as career goals and we aim to support you with both. We have a range of great leave allowances to support you whether you’re studying, caring for family members, taking parental leave, travelling, giving back to the community or just taking some time out. Our corporate employees achieve flexible working to enhance productivity and work life balance through our agile working spaces and having the ability to work from anywhere.
