Have you or someone you know been out of work due to family commitments for two years or more?

Are you or they thinking about going back to work but not sure where to start? If you answered yes to either question then our return to work programme called ‘Refresh’ could be of interest.

At Worldpay we are committed to supporting colleagues with busy lives. We know that most people leave work at the end of the day with responsibilities for young children and elder care. Refresh is an inclusive programme that provides a supportive environment for people to use their skills and experience while maintaining work-life balance.

The Refresh programme includes a structured training and coaching programme to build on existing skills and help you develop your confidence as you settle back into work. You will be invited to apply for any of our open roles or take part in a placement to help you settle back into work.

Do you love technology as much as we do?

We’re looking for creative thinkers, engineers, inventors and entrepreneurs who have a passion for working with technology. We have exciting roles in software engineering & testing, architecture, infrastructure, data transformation, enterprise security, project management and business analysis. As we are a fast moving business our need for experts in different fields changes all the time so we encourage applications from a broad spectrum of technology backgrounds.

Covering approximately 146 countries, 126 currencies, and more than 300 alternative payment forms, we process 40 billion transactions for more than a million merchant locations worldwide each year. Our global technology team is responsible for the design, build and maintenance of systems, products and services that we sell to customers.

When you join our team you will work on some of the most exciting, technology-led projects in the FinTech sector and you will make a huge difference to our business and the tens of millions of people that use our services every day.


To qualify for the Refresh programme you will have been out of work for at least two years due to family commitments, whether it be caring for children, elderly family members or someone with a disability. The programme is inclusive to men and women.

The process

  • Applications open 25 March 2019
  • Application closing date 1 May 2019 (with screening commencing from 7 May)
  • We will then host a one day meet-up on 6 June 2019
  • After the meet-up day, if there is a potential match for one of our open roles, you will be invited to interview for the position

The 6 June meet-up will take place in our London office in the City. It’s a great opportunity to learn more about Worldpay and the different technology teams.

Balancing work and family life

As a family-friendly employer, we know that getting the right work life balance is important especially as life has its way of throwing in some surprises. We want our colleagues who are juggling a busy career and family life to have the support they need, when they need it. In addition to our internal Worldpay Family Network and partnership with My Family Care – providing support and the chance to network with people in a similar situation – we are also open to exploring flexible working arrangements. The standard working week at Worldpay is 35 hours, core hours being 9-5, and as a company, we support colleagues working from home one day per week.
