Paddy Power Betfair
Welcome to Betfair
At Betfair, we don’t just play to win. Our game plan gives us the opportunity to play it our way. To be openly curious. To explore. To innovate. To love what we do.
We started off with one mission: to create a fairer betting experience for customers. And that’s exactly what we did when we launched the Betfair Exchange and disrupted the industry. Fast forward a few years and we continue to innovate and build fairness into our products, comms and our people strategy.
Part of Flutter’s UK&I division, Betfair looks to bring brilliant ideas to life. We do this by playing by 3 simple rules:
We play as a team
We’re at our best when we work together
We respect each other, and we listen to every idea
We create moments for individual brilliance
We play fair
We listen to what everyone needs, and we do our best to make it happen
We’re focused on building a workplace where everyone’s welcome
From our people to our customers, we’ll always fight for what’s right
We play to win
We work at pace, but we have fun doing it
We deliver high performance every day with energy and grit
We always try to be better than we were yesterday
So, if you’re ready to get stuck in and get the job done, we’re ready to challenge you.
