  • Salt's advice for getting a job in Payments


    Employers’ requirements

    Candidates for payments jobs need a solid understanding of the digital financial landscape and should know how payments systems work. They should also be able to display knowledge of how the market is segmented and have an understanding of the value of a cashless society.

    CV Requirements

    Your CV should be able to demonstrate a strong track record of sales, alongside all relevant information regarding employment history. You should also hold both academic and industry qualifications.

    Payments Job Interview Preparation

    An interview for roles in payments will require candidates to demonstrate their analytical and cognitive skills. Occasionally, at more traditional companies, this will require them to give a sales pitch or present case studies. However, the most important thing for candidates to show is their charisma and people skills, which are crucial qualities for anyone looking to work within this sector.

Top Tip

"Gain the knowledge and understand the different segments in payments i.e. wallets and gateway and also the players in each segment in the current market. Understanding how there are separate levels to the market allows you to understand the gaps that exist and roles of each player."
