|Creativity and innovation coupled with meticulous planning and attention to detail is the bedrock of what we do as a department where even the smallest function is questioned if it’s not doing something different. From this platform I’ve had the opportunity to suggest a lot of fun ideas in the full knowledge that if they’re innovative they’ll happen... There’s huge reward in being able to conceive your own ideas and be allowed to see them through to completion.|

|Novelty betting is an area that is defined by the company's brand values - fun, fair and friendly. We have to be responsive to all events in politics, current affairs, popular culture, and not so popular culture. We cover everything, from the high profile to the bizarre - general elections, X Factor, Volcano Holiday Hedging, and even who murdered Archie in Eastenders. It's a bit of a cliche, but no two days are ever the same.|
|Stephanie Anderson, Novelty and Politics Trader|
|In my opinion, (and its no big secret) the biggest things Paddy Power has going for it are its culture and staff. The offbeat humour of the brand is really reflected in the employees, and there’s always banter in and out of the office. There's a great collective team spirit and work atmosphere, particularly when a big sporting event is on. Friends who work in corporate environments are always jealous when I tell them about something random that happened that day.|
|Lynsey Thornton, Lead UX Analyst|
|I really enjoy the social aspect of my job – it is talking to and dealing with people all day every day. I can proudly say that some of my best friends today are those I have met through working in Paddy Power. I want a career in this industry and in Paddy Power they definitely encourage advancement and provide ample opportunities to do just that.|
