Vonage Mission

Our vision is to accelerate the world’s ability to connect, and our mission is to enable the next generation of communications that are more flexible, intelligent and personal, empowering our customers to do what’s next and stay ahead.

We are doing this by delivering a single leading cloud communications platform that powers our customers’ and partners’ global engagement solutions using our APIs, Unified Communications and Contact Centre innovations.

In order to support our strategy, the Finance team is looking for an enthusiastic Finance intern to join their team on a 12-month placement from July 2023.

This is a great opportunity for someone looking for a wide range of experience in a fast-paced environment, working with a very supportive international team. This is an ideal role in which to develop the foundation needed for a career within finance and accountancy.

The role is primarily based in London, joining a team of 8 people, and forms part of a Global Finance function located in New Jersey (US), Basingstoke (UK), San Francisco (US) and Singapore. The role will report into the Senior Director of API Business Finance.

Why this role matters

In recent years Vonage has embarked on an ambitious and exciting growth strategy which has led to a significant transformation of the business, culminating in the acquisition of Vonage by Ericsson in July 2022.

Business Finance plays a key advisory role supporting decision making at a senior level, highlighting key financial issues and risks to be considered.

This role will support the Business Finance team to drive topline and margin growth for the company to support its ambitious targets, as well as support the delivery of operational and process improvements to the team.

What we value:

Being disruptive. Getting things done. With smart people. Enjoying knowing that the work we do is having a global impact by enabling never before imagined communications.

We have big goals, and we want the people who join us to be self-confident, focused on customers and delivery, and who are structured and committed in their approach. We iterate quickly, we fail fast, we take smart chances. We value those who will help us continue this spirit.
