vodafone launches hunt for charity workers

Vodafone Ireland Foundation is offering four exceptional people the opportunity to work for a youth charity of their choice for one year complete with a €40,000 salary paid for by the foundation.

The closing date for applications to the World of Difference programme is September 8. Today FM Broadcaster Ray D'Arcy is among the judges.


The successful applicants will be encouraged to take up their new positions before the end of the year.

Now in its eighth year, the programme is designed to give people the opportunity to answer their true calling while contributing to the development of charities that support young people.

Natalie Hodgess, Vodafone Ireland Foundation Manager, said they were delighted to be able to run the programme.

"We know charities need help now more than ever, and the programme offers a really tangible support to charities that have had to let staff go in the recent economic downturn," she said.

"We have seen the lasting impact this programme has had on the charities that have been successful in the past and we are looking forward to finding four new inspiring individuals and charities that can answer their true calling and make a real difference through their career."
