Betfair Group Plc

Betfair is one of the largest online gambling operators in the UK, providing a wide range of sports betting and gaming products to over 1.7 million active customers. Betfair is a passionate, forward-thinking company where things are always happening. Sport happens minute-to-minute, in real-time, and that’s how we like to think too. We want people who are always asking ‘what’s next?’ Betfair currently runs three distinct products, our pioneering Exchange, which connects customers to bet against each other, our Sportsbook, which is a traditional fixed odds bookmaker and a wide range of Gaming products (including live poker dealers, bingo, a casino and hundreds of slot machines). Our focus is constantly on improving the user experience, and it is this which drives our innovation – apps, promotions and features such as the revolutionary Cash Out and Price Rush. The combination is a unique, comprehensive betting service for customers that makes Betfair a fun and exciting place to bet. We want our staff to feel the same way as our users – excited, empowered and eager to come back for more.
