We were delighted this week to hear from Summer Dunscombe who left Shebbear College Sixth Form in 2016. Summer tells us about her progress so far …

“After graduating in June 2019 with an upper second class honours from Oxford Brookes, I was very happy to join Vodafone Group on their Discover Business Graduate Programme.

It is a two year scheme which includes two, six month, rotations and a year placement in various streams of the company, with the hope to continue on after these two years. For my first placement I will be in the VCI (Vodafone Consultancy Innovation) team for VGE (Vodafone Global Enterprises) which helps explore new and innovative ways to involve technology into everyday actions and processes.

The responsibility and the opportunity to grow is something that I love about Vodafone and there are many extra activities to be involved in, including Vodafone Foundation which is an excellent chance to get involved with charity work and helping others.

I hope to be able to progress on to their marketing and IoT teams later in the graduate scheme whilst making personal progression and goals.”

Well done to Summer, we look forward to hearing more.
