Job description

Over the last 16 years, we have helped over a million satisfied customers move and manage their money. Our award-winning product portfolio allows our customers to make low-cost multi-currency payments across various payment products.

From travel money to transfers, currency hedging, to expense management, we are focused on a single goal of making it easy for our customers to manage and move their money. As a business, we are committed to delivering value to our customers through the combination of advanced payments technology and personal expert service.


About the role

As we embark on our next phase of growth we are looking for an Affiliates Manager to continue to grow, innovate on and develop our digital acquisition strategy across affiliate channels for all of our products - Equals Money (B2B), FairFX (B2C) and Card One Money (B2B & B2C). This will start as a 12 month FTC maternity cover role in July, working with the Senior Affiliates Manager for 1 month to then cover her role.


The Equals Group is in a period of rapid growth, having had a record-breaking 12 months of trading in 2023, with revenues up 37%, and transactions up 35%. We are also in a period of new feature releases across Equals Money and FairFX, third party integrations and more - offering huge opportunities for acquiring new customers.


Who you are

You are innovative, driven and inquisitive, embracing a test-and-learn mentality. You thrive when building business relationships, and can constantly spot new opportunities, efficiency gains and work to continue the building of systems and processes. You can take responsibility for setting strategic direction and most importantly executing on that path. You’ve got an interest in data, automations, systems and processes to enhance efficiency of both spend and time in affiliate channels.

You will be based near our London office, near Mansion House. We have a flexible working policy and won't be expecting you in the office every day if that’s not how you work best. There will be some expectation of travel to other Group and Customer locations.
