Our strategic aim is to drive differentiated value for our customers by increasing their profitability and hence Worldpay's share of wallet. To achieve this we aim to reach more customers in more markets, in local language and with local payment options.

Creation of insightful information from the interrogation of performance data and interpreting developments in both the industry and Worldpay's capabilities to identify new opportunities to exploit.
You'll also engage & develop a good working relationship with the Card Schemes to help influence and drive best practices relating to optimal acceptance.
