Bold new. Not same old.

Shape the Group that shapes an industry.

A FTSE 100 company with annual revenues of £1.5 billion, and operations on three continents, Paddy Power Betfair is a major international business.

But we don’t act like a traditional corporate. Inventive, quick thinking and adaptable, we empower our people to act, to innovate and evolve in one of the fastest-moving sectors around. Our Corporate department is a major factor in our strategic planning as a business, offering you the chance to make your mark on how we grow in the future.

Thanks to our recent merger, there are even more opportunities than usual to help us develop the business. In return, we’ll develop you, with many opportunities to experience other areas of the department via secondments or cross-functional projects, plus support in gaining professional qualifications and a strong tradition of promoting from within.

Our teams

Finance

In 2016, our revenues increased 18% year-on-year, we had an operating profit of £330 million and our combined Group and client funds came to around £360 million.

Join us, and you’ll help shape an international group with ambitious growth plans and an innovative, questioning approach.

As part of our Treasury team, you’ll help us invest hundreds of millions of pounds and manage banking relationships across a global network. Should you join our Client Fund team, you could deliver innovative services to clients across three continents.

Whether you’re involved in commercial finance, financial accounting and reporting, financial planning or projects, you’ll be part of a team with state-of-the-art technology, global reach and big influence.

Tax

Through tax planning, efficient structuring of commercial activities and proactive management of risk, we add value to the business and safeguard our tax position.

From providing essential tax insights on business cases to helping launch new products, it’s varied, fast-paced and absorbing work. Whether we’re driving tax controls that ensure we file and pay on time, or helping support our entry into new regulatory markets, we deliver exceptional results.

Procurement & Corporate Property

Our role in Procurement is to make sure we maximise value for money in dealing with suppliers, while also minimising risk. We’re a small team based across the global business, yet we work closely with each local business unit to ensure that our products and services meet the needs of our customers. It’s a fast-paced environment with plenty of scope for career development.

The Corporate Property team is responsible for managing our Facilities Service, Physical Security and Health & Safety within the business. Paddy Power Betfair aims to provide its employees with world-class working environments, and our Property team is at the forefront of this effort.

The team itself is highly collaborative, working together to develop our strategy and achieve best practice across the business. Work with us and you’ll be a part of managing some of the most exciting offices out there.

Legal

Our sector is fast moving, technology driven and highly regulated. As a result our legal team enjoys the challenge of complex, multi-jurisdictional work within a wide range of regulatory frameworks. As a global company that’s recently undertaken a major merger, operates across three continents and has major growth ambitions, there are many development opportunities here.

Our Legal team works at all times to minimise risk. Our advice covers advertising, brand, IP, technology, privacy, commercial, corporate, consumer protection, regulatory, competition law and more. Above all, we support the business to make strategic decisions with confidence. Which, in a company with as much change as ours, means you’ll have plenty of influence over our growth and future direction.

Compliance

We like to push things to the limit, but we’re not about crossing the line. Our Compliance team is here to provide advice and support to our business, senior management and the board on our current and future regulatory and legal obligations and what our regulators expect of us in areas such as social responsibility, responsible gambling, anti-money laundering and data protection. We carry out training and awareness initiatives for all levels of our business, as well as monitor the business to make sure we’re getting it right.

The key requirement to working in Compliance is having the right attitude and approach. You’ll need a detail-oriented mindset, great communications skills and the ability to get your head around technical rules and regulations. Our industry is evolving all the time, with new regulations put in place to match, so it’s an especially exciting time to get involved. You’ll gain exposure to almost all areas of the business across our globally spanning business and technical skills in specialist areas.

Audit

In an industry like ours, internal audit is critical. Even more so when you’re talking about an international company with a bold approach to betting and gaming operations.

We need highly motivated people to deliver one of the business’s most important tasks: creating a rapport with the colleagues we audit while maintaining professional independence and impartiality. By ensuring we manage risk effectively, and pinpoint new ways of improving our processes and systems, you’ll help us remain fully compliant with a wide range of regulations, even as we operate at the cutting edge.

HR

The pace. The rate of development. The inventive approach. They all combine to make working at Paddy Power Betfair an exhilarating challenge. Thanks to the recent merger, our global reach now stretches across Europe, the US and Australia, and there’s even more potential for driving forward groundbreaking projects.

As a FTSE 100 company that’s retained its start-up soul and resisted becoming a corporate carbon copy, your ideas will flourish here.

Our Business Partners and Talent, Comms, Pay and Reward Specialists are based all across our international network. Together, we make sure our people are excited about their jobs, their career development and their rewards. Which ultimately means a better, more enjoyable experience for our five million customers.

Jayne - Head of HR Operations

Who are you and what do you do here?

I’m Head of HR Operations & Management Information. My responsibility is to ensure that the people data we need is captured and easily accessible. We fulfil a governance role to ensure all HR Policies are fit for purpose and ensure related processes are simplified and automated so the end user can self-serve.

What’s the best bit of your job? And what’s the most the challenging bit?

I think the best part of the job is the variety of work and the opportunities to learn something new, combined with the support you receive from other people within PPB.

Would you say Paddy Power Betfair is a great place to work?

I think PPB attracts very committed, smart and innovative people which creates a great working environment where everyone is very proud of what they achieve.

How has your career developed at Paddy Power Betfair?

I was a Finance Manager in Paddy Power prior to the merger and my current role was advertised when the PPB HR team was being put together. I applied and was given this change in direction in my career. You don’t meet too many accountants in HR. Their new Game Plan Development tool has also helped give employees the chance to own their own careers and push ahead.

If you could have dinner with someone (dead or alive), who would it be and why?

Graham Norton. I’d love to hear some stories about the people he’s met while sampling his own brand wine.

Rachel - Head of Indirect Tax

Who are you and what do you?

Hi, I’m Rachel Wickham and I’m the Head of Indirect Tax. My team is responsible for understanding the taxes that apply to the group and filing the relevant tax returns. My role involves monitoring global tax changes to ensure that we understand what those changes mean and the potential impact for PPB.

For example, if a jurisdiction introduces a regulation and tax regime we need to understand how that applies to us. I also spend time talking to the business to understand new products or initiatives and provide advice on their potential tax implications.

What’s the best bit of your job? And the most challenging?

Paddy Power Betfair is such a fast-paced company with a focus on getting to market quickly that no day is ever the same and there’s always something new to consider. We get to work with lots of different departments and people as tax generally impacts most areas of the business. The most challenging part is probably trying to keep up with all the new initiatives!

Would you say Paddy Power Betfair is a great place to work?

I really like it here. And I think a lot of it is the people. Everyone is smart and good at their job, but generally people don’t take themselves too seriously and are fun to work with. Good people do really well at PPB.

Aside from the culture, I think the career progression is a big reason to work here. There are always new things happening and interesting situations arising. There are also lots of opportunities to move across departments and this is something that Paddy Power Betfair is really good at.

Did the merger impact your career at ? Has it opened up new opportunities?

The tax team is a larger combined team and we are now responsible for a much larger business. The greater focus on international expansion allows me to work with more jurisdictions and lots of different tax issues.

If you could choose a superpower what would it be?

Invisibility [But she wouldn’t tell us why! – Ed.].

Corporate responsibility

Acting responsibly is core to what we do. In 2016, we were delighted to be included in the top 9% of all travel and leisure companies in the FTSE4Good Index. You’ll build on this success, with environmental, social and governance policies that lead the sector.

We’re always driving innovative projects. For example, partnering with sporting governing bodies like FIFA to develop systems that allow us to share suspicious betting with them, and working with the betting industry, our customers and charities to support responsible gambling. Join us, and you’ll help our growing international company continue to be pioneers in the corporate responsibility sphere.

Where are we based?

We’re based in DublinHammersmith (London), and Cluj (Romania)
