Head of Client Success (UK)

Wagestream is on a mission to bring better financial wellbeing to frontline workers.

We partner with some of the world’s most famous employers, like Burger King, Asda, Co-op, Bupa and Greene King to give their teams access to fairer financial services - all built around flexible pay. Over three million people can now choose how often they’re paid, track their shifts and earnings, start saving, use budgeting tools, get free financial coaching, and access fairer financial products. All in one financial wellbeing super-app.

Wagestream is unique: VC-backed and growing at scale-up pace, but with a social conscience. Some of the world's leading financial charities and impact funds were our founding investors, and we operate on a social charter - which means every product we build has to improve financial health and reduce the $5.6bn ‘premium’ lower-income earners pay for financial services each year.

You’d be joining a team of over 150 passionate, ambitious people, across Europe and the USA, building a category-leading fintech product and all united by that same mission.

The Opportunity:

At Wagestream, we are proud to have big ambitions and the Client Success team plays a crucial part in helping us achieve them! Joining Wagestream is an opportunity to work for the world's only social impact, charity-backed, financial wellbeing solution provider’s on the verge of neobank status, helping to propel us to the next phase of our growth. You’ll help us to transform the lives of frontline workers and the organisations they work for.

Leading the well established Client Success function in the UK, you’ll play a huge part in ensuring we’re achieving our mission of giving every working person globally power over their pay, to have complete financial freedom and wellbeing. By ensuring clients are set up for success upon joining the Wagestream platform and driving ongoing high levels of customer engagement and satisfaction, you and the team will be helping more employees have the ability to instantly access, track, save and manage earned wages.

What will you be doing?

  • You will direct and motivate the Client Success team to deliver on ambitious goals of adoption growth, penetration of new products adoption and logo retention, plus client referenceability. You’ll set strategic priorities and activities within the function to deliver upon these core goals.
  • Actively monitor progress towards account plans and provide feedback and solutions based on insights and market developments

  • Above all else, making our clients successful in the outcomes they attach to having Wagestream! Did you know in 2024, we helped the Co-op deliver the best employee benefit across the whole of the UK?

The Team:

You will lead the Client Success team to drive customer engagement and satisfaction across the platform. The team, forming part of the wider Go To Market function, is committed to delivering a first-class service to our customers and in turn making sure that we deliver tangible impact for our client partners.
