Your role in our mission

In addition to running our core platform, we’re building a new venture within Salary Finance called Work Report. 

Work Report is a game-changing employment and income verification product. Gone are the days of having to evidence employment and income with paper payslips, letters from HR or bank statements when applying for a mortgage, financing a new car or getting a new job. Instead, we’re building the UK’s first digital employment and income verification solution. Work Report enables employees to complete verifications in seconds with the click of a button and share their employment data directly from employers’ systems with the organisations they choose. 

To make Work Report a reality, we’re building on our existing partnerships with 575 of the UK’s biggest employers and creating new partnerships to support an ambitious product roadmap. We’re also working closely with our client to maximise and implement the Work Report product with their extensive clientbase.      

We are looking for a Commercial Partnerships Manager to join our Work Report commercial team. Reporting to the Work Report Commercial Lead you will be responsible for a portfolio of projects that involve setting up and managing integration partnerships with new sources of employment data. 

As a result, the role will be broad and challenging. You will work with a diverse range of clients, external and internal stakeholders and will work end to end on projects: from supporting sales and contracting, to project delivery and aftercare.
