Why is eCommerce B2B Strategy Manager the next step for you?

The eCommerce Business Unit at Worldpay is thriving, providing global payment solutions to the world's largest, most international merchants. We focus on 5 key vertical markets, specifically Airlines, Travel, Retail, Digital Content and Gambling. And we are now looking to add an extra one - B2B. In these markets we partner with highly innovative, fast growing customers, delivering market leading payment solutions. We don't just bring payments knowledge and experience; we bring deep expertise of each specific vertical market, tailored product propositions and deep integrations into the vertical's ecosystems. The Strategy team operates at the heart of the eCommerce business unit, driving differentiated value for our customers.

Our people are our competitive advantage. We offer an energetic, entrepreneurial working environment with great opportunities for you to learn and grow. This is a great time to join an already successful business and further develop your career.

What does the role involve?

You will help develop, lead and deliver a new strategic vertical - B2B. You will identify the global market, trends and operating model. Then you will look at opportunities for Worldpay in that vertical. It will involve an analytical component and will also require engagement with critical stakeholders from across the business, e.g.: Global eCommerce Executive team, Vertical Strategists (Airlines, Travel, Gambling, Digital Content & Global Retail), Business Development, Relationship Management, Marketing & Demand Generation, Product Management and Delivery. This is a UK based role but will incorporate regular contact with all priority markets and regions including US, EMEA, LATAM and APAC.

You will be driving firm-wide implementation of the identified opportunities influencing product roadmaps and upscaling commercial expertise.

What will make you the ideal candidate?

You have a Bachelors degree (2:1 or above) from a selective university and several years work experience at an strategic role within a B2B company or at a top-tier strategy consultancy firm working in the B2B industry.

You have a good analytical pedigree, strong project management skills and an ability to develop, lead and execute complex initiatives. You are a confident communicator and networker, with good influencing skills.

You have been central to wide-ranging strategic decision-making processes and are comfortable making choices and assessing trade-offs. You are a natural collaborator with an ability to build and maintain strong relationships both internally and externally.
