The Role…

This is a great opportunity for somebody who wants to work in an environment where curiosity is rewarded and people are empowered to make decisions. The ideal candidate will have a passion for learning and a head for numbers. Successful candidates will be tasked with a range or responsibilities aligned to offering a first-class experience for our customers. You will also have the opportunity to progress within the department or cross functionally.

What You’ll be Doing…

Problem Solving

No two days are the same. From making decisions on a customer query where there is no right or wrong answer, to collaborating with other departments to ensure PPB deliver a best in class customer experience for a major sporting event, you will be given the opportunity to put your problem-solving skills to good use every day in this role.

Data driven decision making

As a Trader you’ll need to monitor bets being placed on a range of sporting events and adjust the odds offered based on this activity and other information available to you.

Our in-house models and data feeds mean that the odds offered during sporting events are calculated automatically. Our Traders add value by detecting when these odds need to be nudged in one direction through interpreting patterns in customer activity and data. Strong attention to detail and an inquisitive mind are a must.

Customer obsessed

Our aim is to delight our customers with our sports betting proposition. We need our Traders to be customer obsessed to achieve this. You’ll need to put yourself in the shoes of the customer to ensure that the journey they experience when using our products is seamless from start to finish.

Competitor Awareness

The markets we operate in are highly competitive. We need our Traders to actively monitor the pricing strategies and product offering of existing and upcoming competitors to ensure we can react quickly to changing market dynamics. Immersing yourself in the competitive landscape and surfacing insights that leads to change will be part of this role.

What We’re Looking for…

  • High computer literacy – good standard or word and excel
  • We don’t expect you to know the ins-and-outs of sports or betting just a passion for your role.
  • We have 3 roles available currently, these roles would be across our GB&I team, including; Golf, Cricket and general GB&I sports (Rugby etc.). A knowledge of these would be advantageous.
  • Good numerical ability

What you’ll get in return…

Career Progression

5 global brands in 3 continents = endless opportunities. We’re a FTSE 100 with a start-up soul, so if you enjoy working in a fast-paced, innovative environment, you’ll get on here. There are many directions your career can move in; whether it’s gaining promotion within your existing team, or an international move.

Uncapped Holiday Allowance

Yes, you heard that right – UNCAPPED holiday!

Flexible Working

We play many roles in our busy lives; juggling family, fitness, work, study and community interests. Sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day. Which got us thinking. Wouldn’t it be great if we could play with time and fit in all the things that are important? Good news. You can. We have a host of flexible working options that are available to everyone at PPB.

The Fun Stuff

Competitive salary and bonus scheme, ‘Pizza & Drinks Fridays’, health and wellbeing with free classes such as Yoga, bootcamp, Brazilian jujitsu, running club and lots of great events organised throughout the year by our own Ministry of Fun.

There’s more but we won’t go on…
