Public Relations Manager

🔭 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 on a mission to bring better financial wellbeing to frontline workers.

We partner with some of the world’s most famous employers, like Pizza Express, Hilton and the UK’s National Health Service, to give their teams access to fairer financial services - all built around flexible pay. Almost a million people can now choose how often they’re paid, track their shifts and earnings, start saving, use budgeting tools, get free financial coaching, and access fairer financial products. All in one financial wellbeing super-app.

Wagestream is unique: VC-backed and growing at scale-up pace, but with a social conscience. The UK’s leading financial charities and impact funds were our founding investors, and we operate on a social charter - which means every product we build has to improve financial health and reduce the $5.6bn ‘premium’ lower-income earners pay for financial services each year.

You’d be joining a team of 100 talented, ambitious people, growing in Europe, Australia and the USA, building a category-leading fintech product and all united by that same mission.

The Opportunity:

This is a chance to establish and protect the reputation of a game-changing fintech.

We’re building a new fintech category that changes the way half of the world’s workforce are banked. But we’re also accountable to financial charities and a social charter, and we proactively encourage our wider sector to protect the interests of overlooked, underserved consumers.

Your mission will be to support both sides of that journey, telling our story through a growing network of media and analyst stakeholders.

Responsibilities & tasks

What will you be doing?:

You’ll build and lead a media/analyst relations strategy that supports our growth in two ways:

Building the category: developing relationships with key analyst firms, ensuring they understand financial wellbeing and advocate the role of employer-banking in driving it

Establishing a global leader: building a growing network of media contacts who understand financial exclusion and champion Wagestream’s role in tackling it

Ideal candidate

Requirements:

You could be the person for us, if you have:

6-8 years of public relations experience - including financial services/fintech, social impact and the charity sector, or both

A strong, established network of contacts across broadcast, national and trade media

Proven experience of managing analyst relations programmes that shape the narrative for an emerging category or sector

A good grasp of data-driven storytelling

A T-shaped skillset, with deep media and analyst relations expertise, but a broader understanding of marketing and communications

An audience-agnostic skillset, with experience across B2B and B2C

Experience of crisis and issues management
