Customer Support Representative - UK

🔭 Our mission & vision

Our mission is simple. We want every working person globally to have complete financial freedom by giving them power over their pay.

Power over pay means the ability to instantly access, track, save and manage earned wages. We want to transform people's lives and the organisations they work for.

Job Description

Wagestream is the global leader in Financial Wellbeing. We provide an income streaming solution for employers to give employees instant access to their earnings, and prevent them ever having to go into debt between pay cycles.

We were founded for a social purpose to reduce the poverty premium. We believe the monthly pay cycle is fundamentally broken and unfair to employees, and that we can fix it. We know financial services are better served through the employer, and have built a set of tools [track, stream, save, learn], that boost the financial resilience of a workforce and have a measurable and proven impact on employee retention and productivity.

We love our clients and do everything we can to support them. We already help 750,000 employees access their income when they need it, across some of the largest organisations in the UK including the NHS, Bupa, Stonegate Pubs and Rentokil. In July 2020, Wagestream raised additional funding to expand into new markets in Europe and North America. Our mission is to provide fair financial services to all and our technology has started to create a whole new category; the workplace bank.

About Customer Support:

The Customer Support team is responsible for rolling out the red carpet when employees use Wagestream to access their wages; from their first login through their entire end-user experience. Our team sits in the heart of Wagestream, supporting and maintaining relationships with Wagestream clients and their colleagues. Working together with our Commercial and Engineering teams, we deliver exceptional service for our clients in the pursuit of bringing Wagestream to as many employees as possible.
