Why is our Partner Manager role the next step for you?
The eCommerce business unit at Worldpay is thriving, providing global payment solutions to the world's largest international companies. This role focuses on the development of our partner eco system as we expand our omni channel capabilities and deliver innovative solutions to new markets,
We work with highly innovative, fast growing customers, delivering market leading payment solutions. We don't just bring payments knowledge and experience; we bring deep expertise of each vertical market, tailored product propositions and leading technology within that vertical ecosystem. The Vertical Growth team (of which you will be a part) operates at the heart of the eCommerce business unit, driving differentiated value for our customers.
Our people are our competitive advantage. The eCommerce Vertical Growth team have a proven track-record of bringing genuine talent into the business and providing a springboard for stellar careers within Worldpay. We offer an energetic, entrepreneurial working environment with great opportunities for you to learn and grow. This is a great time to join an already successful business and further develop your career.

What does the Partner Manager role involve?
At Worldpay we partner with companies and organisations which are central to the vertical ecosystems in which we operate. We collaborate with those partners to deliver best-in-class products and services to our customers, with the aim of generating new business and enabling customer growth as they expand into new markets for face to face processing. Examples include EPOS providers Cegid and LS Retail who we partner with, along with Omni channel solutions such as APTOS. In this role you will manage and develop a portfolio of strategic partners, alongside identifying and delivering new partnerships with leading technology businesses.
The role involves a degree of businesses development, relationship management, project management, product ownership as well as technical and operational competence. You will be collaborating with internal teams on building out the capabilities of our partners, as we expand our omni channel proposition into new markets in addition to recruiting new partners. You will be working with C-level business leaders to promote the Worldpay value proposition and underline the benefit of a joint partner proposition. This is a broad role which will allow you to touch upon many areas or both Worldpay and the wider industry. In this role you will work with commercial teams and partners initially across EMEA, but as we grow the proposition and partnership portfolio, this will be global. You will deliver impactful workshops, exhibits and conferences as well as lead partner training sessions both internally and externally. As part of the Growth team, you will also work closely with the central Product, Strategy and Marketing functions alongside other colleagues from various functions and levels within the organization. You will report into the Vice President of Retail.

What will make you the ideal candidate?
The role requires business maturity, pro-activity, and an ability to develop, lead and execute complex initiatives. You are a confident communicator and networker, with good influencing skills. You have been central to commercially focused projects and are comfortable making choices and assessing trade-offs. You are a natural collaborator with an ability to build and maintain strong relationships both internally and externally. Ideally you have a level of commercial experience whether that be through account management, business development or supplier management (preferred but not essential).

How is Worldpay changing the world?
We are leaders in modern money. Every time you use your debit card or credit card, whether online or face-to-face, there's a good chance we supported that transaction in some capacity. On an annual basis, our innovations, systems and technology enable billions of payments globally. We help our global customer base to take payments quickly, safely and reliably, allowing them to grow their businesses. Worldpay's IPO in 2015 was the largest ever in the FinTech arena. We recently made LinkedIn's list of top 50 employers in the U.K. This is a great time to join us in building for the next phase of the Worldpay journey. Please apply now and we'll be in touch.
