Paddy Power Betfair plc was formed in February 2016 from the merger of two of the fastest-growing online betting operators in the world; Paddy Power plc and Betfair Group plc. Paddy Power is a multichannel (online and retail) betting operator widely seen as one of the most distinctive consumer brands in Europe. Betfair is an innovative online-only betting operator which pioneered the betting exchange in 2000, changing the landscape of the sports betting industry over the next decade.
What gives us that extra special edge is our people. People with the passion to push boundaries. People who revel in doing the unexpected. People who – day in, day out – help us to beat the competition in some highly competitive markets. The customer is at the heart of everything we do and above all we value people who go the extra mile to consistently deliver exceptional service.
Doing things differently, believing in ourselves and each other, and never settling for second best has led to double digit growth, and it also means our employees are readily equipped to step up and excel their careers. So if you share our passion, and you’ve had enough dull moments in your work life to last a lifetime, join a team at the heart of the action, ahead of the pack and pushing boundaries at Paddy Power Betfair.
