In 2016, we launched the Muslims of Worldpay (MoW) network which aims to create a better understanding of the Islamic culture and religion.

Supporting colleagues with families

As a family-friendly employer, we know how important it is to achieve the right work-life balance. We launched the Worldpay Family Network (WFN) in November 2016 and had 285 members by the end of the year. This colleague-led network offers the opportunity to connect and network with colleagues going through similar experiences and to access inspiring and relevant events and resources on a range of issues at convenient times. The WFN network complements our partnership with My Family Care, a national scheme through which we can offer a wealth of information and resources for colleagues with families.

Worldpay subsidises six sessions of emergency back-up childcare or elder care for every colleague as well as maternity, paternity and adoption 1-1 coaching and webinars. Nearly 11% of colleagues are registered.

Embracing gender diversity

We continue to focus on gender diversity and on strengthening the pipeline of talented women in Worldpay. In 2016, Worldpay appointed a number of women into senior roles including Stephanie Ferris, Chief Financial Officer, Kim Martin, Chief Human Resources Officer; and Karen Richardson, Non-Executive Director and member of the Audit, Group Risk and Nomination Committees.

Worldpay is a founding member of the new FT 125 Women’s Forum, launched in October 2016, which aims to help talented women at mid-career level to progress into leadership roles. Through regular events, the forum is designed to engage participants in new thinking around topics such as digital innovation, leadership and attracting and retaining talented women.

Case Study:

Tell us about your experience before Worldpay

I joined Andersen (later Deloitte) after graduating, and spent 13 years implementing tax software automation solutions for large corporates.
After missing out on promotions during 2 maternity leaves I took a role as Director at EY to help set up an equivalent team.
A year later, having decided as a family that we wanted to move to the countryside I realised that EY wouldn’t accommodate the flexibility I wanted so I resigned and left the city.
I started a smallholding and retrained as a School Business Manager, working in education for the next 8 years, eventually setting up my own consultancy business.

Describe a typical day in your role…

One of the reasons I love my role is the variety, so I don’t really consider any day as typical. My role leading the Incubation team within Data & Analytics involves working closely with stakeholders to understand their requirements, define strategy and manage process change and implementation. I support my team and work with other parts of the D&A function to deliver innovative solutions and improve use of data within the business. On a good day I also get my hands dirty with doing some data analysis and SQL development.

What inspires you about your role and/or working for Worldpay

I’m excited by the payments industry and the fact that Worldpay is a market leader that’s helping shape the future of money inspires me.
Having worked on my own at home I really appreciate the daily interaction with my colleagues. It’s great to have a role where I make an impact – both by improving people’s day jobs and directly impacting the P&L.
Being able to purchase extra holiday and the seamless working from home at Worldpay meant I returned full-time and still have days when I take my kids to school and plenty of time off in the school holiday

Tell us about your experience before Worldpay

I joined Cognizant Technology Solutions in 2004 while I was in India as a Programmer Analyst Trainee after completing my bachelor degree in engineering. I also worked for Core Logic (a subsidiary of First American Corporation) which was eventually taken over by Cognizant. I gained knowledge in multiple domains such as telecoms, manufacturing and mortgages as-well-as technical knowledge whilst working with CTS. I moved to UK in 2012 and decided to take a break to look after my daughter. I worked as a part time contractor in between for couple of months where I got an opportunity to develop mobile apps.

Describe a typical day in your role…

I am a software developer and my day starts with a quick team meeting. Typically my days are technical, mostly understanding the requirement, discussion with the Product Owner and development work.

What inspires you about your role and/or working for Worldpay

I am very excited to travel to work and meet my enthusiastic team every day at Worldpay. At the same I am grateful that I can work from home when I have my daughter’s school events and travel issues. I have got amazing support from my team as a returner and my confidence grows every day. It’s exciting to learn new technologies and payment techniques.
