Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Aimee Horwood and I am a graduate working in UK Public Affairs and Corporate Social Responsibility. My department acts as the eyes and ears of the business. We work with Parliament, trade associations, self-regulatory bodies and charities to ensure that gambling remains a socially responsible industry. We’re here to make sure everybody plays fair, essentially.
What’s the best bit of your job? And the most challenging?
I love that my job means that I can read the news every day. But it’s also really difficult to plan in my department as we have to be reactive and able to adapt to political events!
Would you say Paddy Power Betfair is a great place to work?
Yeah I would. Everyone I work with is friendly, and senior managers are approachable and genuinely want to listen. I think as a company we know how to have fun but we’re also very good at getting the job done. If you can work hard and have a sense of humour, you’ll fit right in.
Which is your favourite Paddy Power Betfair company value and why?
Collaboration – because when you work together you find better ways of solving problems, you see things from new perspectives and you form lasting friendships. It’s certainly worked for me here.
If you could choose a superpower what would it be?
Teleportation — I’d travel all over the world in a weekend.
