'Before I started working for takepayments I was a supermarket store manager, working all the hours under the sun including weekends, with a young family this was very tough with not much time for family time & days out.  I decided things had to change and applied through a friend of mine.  Due to not having any sales or phone experience I found things tough in the early stages but with the help of existing colleagues I picked up things on how to improve quickly and I started earning decent commission and in Platinum period 1 of 2019 I hit my target and went to Portugal on a 5 star holiday! 

I have recently began mentoring new starters at the business to help them with the early stages of pitching on the phone, e.g. different techniques and statements to use when booking appointments.'

Callum Blythe - Telemarketing Executive, Grimsby


'This is by far the best sales job I’ve had in the last 15 years. The fantastic commission structure has given me so much. I’ve been able to go on dream holidays, treat my family and help my son out with his education to save him getting in debt. Just recently I was able to buy myself a pair of Ray Ban’s – something I’ve wanted for a long time.

What I really love are Clive’s values. It makes all the difference to work for somebody who shares the same values as I do. The company incentives and recognition make all the difference. For any money hungry potential candidates, this is the job for you as the earning potential is limitless.'

Keely Turner - Telemarketing Executive, Grimsby 


'I came to takepayments having previously worked in teaching and then insurance. I instantly found that this was the right fit for me due to the relaxed atmosphere and the healthy competitive drive that management instils in the team. I worked first for the frontline helpdesk but was quickly successful in applying for a position on the Online department, learning about new products and a wide variety of merchants. Following this I moved to the formal complaints department and after only 8 months I was granted the position of Senior Complaints Officer.

takepayments is not only capable of recognising hard work and a positive attitude but it is always willing to reward it as well. It seems like there are always ways of achieving additional perks and prizes and I have been included on days out, given a stay in a hotel with my partner and countless small prizes like shopping vouchers. Anyone willing to put the work in sees the benefits straight away.

Don’t be nervous about working with new people because everyone is really approachable. The job may seem simple at first but put your back into it because you’ll get out whatever you put in!'

Partick Bousfield, Customer Experience Team Leader, Stockport

    Payment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Stockport, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at TakePayments (Stockport, England) in December 2019.


    The interview process was professional throughout, with excellent communication pre and post interview. I initially had a phone interview and then was brought in for a face to face. The interview itself was informative and inspiring and to be honest when I left the interview I have never wanted to be accepted for a job more. My interviewer was extremely knowledgeable about the industry and clearly passionate about what he did, his team and the business as a whole. He took the time to really educate me about the massive opportunity that laid ahead. Not only the earning potential but also the positive fun and success driven environment that take payments have built. He showed me around the 3 floors and the buzz and energy you could feel was amazing. Everyone I came into contact with seemed really welcoming and engaging, and it was like already I was part of the team. The company really seem to invest in their staff and it shows. Excellent interview all round.
