A generous benefits package for employees

A generous benefits package

As a permanent employee, you’ll be entitled to a generous package of extra benefits

We value the energy, enthusiasm and ideas that our people bring to work every day. And we know it’s not enough to simply say ‘good onya’. So we’ve come up with a bunch of special benefits that apply to everyone working permanently at Vodafone. Here are the icing-on-the-cake extras you’ll get as a Vodafone employee.

A smartphone

One of the perks of working for Vodafone is a smartphone, as well as a fully-subsidised Smart plan to give you the talk, TXT and data you need to appreciate smartphone ownership. You’ll receive your smart companion on your first day at Vodafone.

Your day

Our gift for every employee is a day off work to celebrate “you”. Sleep in, visit the spa, have an adventure, go shopping, do some gardening, go to the beach – what you do with Your Day is up to you.

Health and life insurance

As a permanent employee of Vodafone, you’ll be eligible for fully-subsidised (that’s right, nothing to pay!) Southern Cross health insurance. The cover supplied is Regular Care and it applies to you and your immediate family.  Permanent employees who work more than 15 hours a week also get life cover and total and permanent disablement cover for two times their base salary.

Paid parental leave

Vodafone’s Phased Return to Work scheme gives new parents the flexibility to spend more time with their baby (or babies!). In addition to this, Vodafone adds to the government's paid parental leave entitlement of 22 weeks to top you up to 100% of your normal earning. Because we’re at our best when you’re at yours!  We also offer two weeks of paid paternity/partner’s leave to our employees supporting their partner in those first weeks.

Flu shots

To help stop the spread of influenza, everyone at Vodafone is offered a free flu shot once a year. It won’t hurt (well maybe just a bit) and it could save you a lot of pain and snuffling.

Paid volunteering

Vodafone has strong local roots and is committed to doing what’s right. Our people can make a meaningful contribution to the community and volunteer their time at a charity of their choice for up to 2 weeks and still get paid!

Learn while you earn

We help our Vodafoners build their careers and reach their potential. The Vodafone Qualifications Programme can translate what you are doing in your normal working day into real, valuable NZQA accredited qualifications. Our people have access to a sweet as suite of e-learning and industry training opportunities.


Because everyone loves a good deal, our employees get to access to great discounts from over 70 retailers across New Zealand. To top it all off, we also let your whanau experience Vodafone at extraordinary value with our special family and friends offers on a range of mobile and broadband plans.

Health and wellbeing

Vodafone prioritises the wellbeing of its people, and offers a range of health and wellbeing options. The wellbeing initiative includes health surveillance and in those times when you need someone to talk to, we give you access to a confidential support, guidance and counselling service, which is available 24/7, 365 days a year.
