Vodafone UK’s partner agent programme opens up to new entrepreneurs

Vodafone UK’s partner agent programme opens up to new entrepreneurs

Vodafone UK is now offering entrepreneurs from within the business and outside of it the chance to franchise their own store as part of our Partner Agent Programme.

  • Vodafone UK Partner Agent Programme celebrates first trading year and opens up to new entrepreneurs from outside the business.
  • 35 stores are now live with this unique franchising approach, with 100 Partner Agent stores forecasted by April, 2019 

Vodafone UK is now offering entrepreneurs from both within the business and outside of it the chance to franchise their own store as part of our Partner Agent Programme. The programme first went live in August 2017, where the scheme focussed on offering Vodafone employees the opportunity to transition from operator to owner – giving them the ability to take control and make decisions for their own stores.

As of today, there are 35 stores with Partner Agents and they are consistently delivering above forecasted growth and teaching Vodafone new ways of thinking. That is why we are now opening the programme to entrepreneurs from outside of Vodafone – giving them the chance to become a Partner Agent with one of the biggest and most recognised brands in the UK.

New Partner Agent stores have opened in Sheffield, Chesterfield, Walsall, Lancaster, Bangor and Newton Abbey in the last month. Vodafone UK is looking to have 100 Partner Agent stores by April, 2019.

For more information, and the chance to own your own store please visit https://www.vodafone.co.uk/franchise and register your interest now.

About Vodafone UK

Vodafone UK connects people, businesses and devices to help our customers benefit from digital innovation. Our services span mobile, fixed line connections, home and office broadband and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Having made the UK’s first mobile phone call and sent the first text message, Vodafone has a history as a tech pioneer. In 2018 we made the UK’s first live holographic call using 5G, and were first to start carrying live 5G traffic from a site in Salford, Greater Manchester. We now have 5G in more places than anyone else, with multiple locations now live across the UK and the rest of Europe.

Today we serve more than 18 million mobile and fixed line customers in the UK, with 4G network coverage at 99%.  Our customers voted us the UK’s Best Mobile Network at the 2018 Trusted Reviews Awards – for the second year in a row. To help deliver Gigabit UK, our full-fibre broadband roll-out programme now covers 15 UK towns and cities through partnerships with CityFibre and Openreach.

Connectivity is at the heart of what we do as it gives us a huge opportunity for good. We are using our network, products, talents and technology to help society prosper and respond to significant social and environmental issues.  Our free Digital Parenting magazine is helping families and schools across the UK to navigate the online world safely. Meanwhile, the Vodafone Foundation’s work with researchers at Imperial College is developing personalised cancer treatment using the processing power of smartphones.

We are part of Vodafone Group, one of the world’s largest technology communications companies, with mobile operations in 26 countries, partnerships with mobile networks in 55 more, and fixed broadband operations in 19 markets.  As of 30 September 2019, Vodafone Group had approximately 625 million mobile customers, 27 million fixed broadband customers, and 22 million TV customers – including all of the customers in Vodafone’s joint ventures and associates.
