Vodafone offers £10 a month mobile deal for jobseekers
With unemployment predicted to reach one million by the end of 2020, the new plan is designed to help reduce monthly outgoings for those who are most financially vulnerable.
The plan is open to anyone currently claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance, Employment and Support Allowance or employment-based Universal Credit.
The plan would usually cost £35 a month but jobseekers can get the tariff for £10 a month (a 70% discount) without a credit check or signing a contract.
To apply, customers need to upload an image of their Universal Credit statement or a letter from the Department for Work and Pensions via the Voxi website that confirms they are in receipt of job-seeking benefits.
Nick Jeffery, CEO of Vodafone UK, said: “We want to provide financial relief to those people most in need at this incredibly difficult time. And we want to make sure those people keep connected, because we know how vital that is – vital to finding new work, and vital to good mental health.
“If you can’t afford your current plan, or you know someone who is struggling, we can help.”
As well as introducing the new plan for job seekers, Vodafone has also extended the free unlimited data it made available for NHS workers earlier in the year until 31 January 2021.
