Vodacom is changing the lives of many South Africans, through their educational programmes, with more than 60 Teacher Centres across the country.
I have grown tremendously. I have a great understanding of how the business operates and how I can make a difference. The programme has given me the opportunity to better understand the corporate world and more importantly to understand myself and my career aspirations. I love the people I work with – the charismatic individuals that help get things done. The people are at the heart of what makes Vodacom great. I see myself advancing within the business having been exposed to different areas and being involved in cross-functional projects. There are many opportunities if you are willing to put in the work.
A year on... and the experience has been Great!!I am currently rotating in different functions within Vodacom. Everyday I’m gaining more and more exposure while developing a holistic view of the Industry and taking on additional responsibility. After some hard work I have also been selected to represent Vodacom SA at a VIDA International conference later this year in Germany.

Vodacom notice - Phishing
Vodacom has recently been made aware of some customers receiving fraudulent emails claiming to be from Vodacom and asking for updated contact information. The mails may even look authentic and contain the Vodacom logo and corporate colours.
Note: Vodacom won't ever ask for personal information over email.
These are scams commonly known as 'phishing' and all Vodacom customers should take note of the following before responding to an email from a site asking for personal information.
- Check that the email address and the sender name match.
- Hover over (but do not click) any links to check if the address matches the link that was typed in the message.
- Make sure that the email address or phone number listed in the email is the same as the one that should be on that company's records.
- Does the message start with a generic greeting, like "Dear customer." Most legitimate companies will include the recipient's name in their messages
If you suspect a phishing mail, contact our customer care by dialing 111 from your Vodacom handset. Alternatively, send us an email by completing the Scams & Hoax form.
