Applying at VodafoneZiggo continues as usual. Of course with a COVID-proof application process.

About the program

Lots of impact. Lots of growth opportunities. And lots of fun. That’s what the Discover traineeship is all about. Actually, we should add ‘lots of variety’, because you’ll complete three different (and equally challenging!) projects during your-traineeship. Two of these projects will be tailored to your studies and background. The third will pull you out of your comfort zone and put you to work in a business unit with a completely different focus. Can you make a positive impact there, too?

Set your own course

The Discover traineeship is the ultimate fast track to a challenging career in an organization that uses innovative technology to connect people. With each other. And with the rest of the world. In a 1,5 year program, you’ll discover who you are, what you’re capable of, where you want to be, and how you can get there with us. You’ll set your own course. This is what makes your traineeship unique.

Your development path


Discover your drivers and strenghts

Personal development programs should be just that: tailored to your personal -goals and ambitions. That’s the only way we can provide with you the right tools to launch your career at Max-Verstappen-speed. So the personal development program isn’t set in stone; it continuously evolves. Just like our organization. And like you. This is what you can expect at a minimum:

  • Inspiring 2-week onboarding program, including meet & greet with one of our board members and the opportunity to meet a variety of colleagues and customers.

  • External training sessions in which you and your fellow -trainees discover what motivates you, and in which you specify your development goals.
  • On and off the job coaching by senior management, your project manager HR and a personal buddy who will show you the ropes at VodafoneZiggo.

A trip down memory lane

Service Designer Dravis and Category Manager Juan Pablo both started their career at VodafoneZiggo as trainees. We interviewed them and asked them how they look back on their Discover Traineeship three years later. These are their stories:

After your traineeship

After your traineeship ends, we want to keep your career on track. So together we’ll discuss what role suits you best. Not what role you could fulfill, but the one you want, in which your entrepreneurship comes to fruition and you can make a real difference for customers on a daily basis. Curious in what areas other Discover trainees made their mark? Read their stories here.

Discover the world
International ambitions? As a Discover  trainee you’ll be flanked by two ‘mothers’ (read: our parent companies) who, combined, are active all around the world. The world is your oyster! You could even enroll in our Columbus program and work for two years in one of the many other countries we’re active in.
