Vodafone opens applications for charity work placements

World of Difference UK programme offers bursaries worth £2,500 for people to undertake two or four-month stints with voluntary organisations


The mobile phone operator Vodafone has opened the application process for its latest World of Difference UK programme, which provides bursaries to enable 500 people to carry out short-term charity placements.

The company is offering £2,500 a placement for the person’s salary and £250 for the charity’s expenses. The placements will last for two months if they are full-time or up to four months if they are part-time.

Charities can either find people themselves or register their placements on the World of Difference UK site, which will enable people to find placements through an online match-making service.

People who want to take part will need to agree to a placement with a charity before they can apply for the scheme. Vodafone will then select 500 individuals from these applications.

Charities that are interested in being part of the programme should go the World of Difference UK website or email worldofdifferenceuk@vodafone.co.uk. The closing date for applications is 22 November.
