What You'll be Doing
No two days are the same. From making choices on a customer query where there is no right or wrong answer, to collaborating with other departments to ensure PPB deliver a best in class customer experience for a major sporting event, you will be given the opportunity to put your problem-solving skills to good use every day in this role.
Data analysis approach
As a Trader you'll need to monitor bets being placed on a range of sporting events and adjust the odds offered based on this action and other information available to you.
Our in-house models and data feeds mean that the odds offered during sporting events are calculated automatically. Our Traders add value by detecting when these odds need to be nudged in one direction through interpreting patterns in customer activity and data. Strong attention to detail and an inquisitive mind are a must.
Our aim is to delight our customers with our sports betting proposition. We need our Traders to be customer obsessed to achieve this. You'll need to put yourself in the shoes of the customer to ensure that the journey they experience when using our products is seamless from start to finish.
We need our Traders to constantly monitor the pricing strategies and product offering of existing and upcoming competitors to ensure we can react quickly to changing market dynamics. Immersing yourself in the competitive landscape and surfacing insights that guide change will be part of this role.
What We're Looking for
- High computer literacy - good standard in word and excel
- We don't expect you to know the ins-and-outs of sports or betting just to be enthusiastic and have a passion for your role.
- Good numerical ability
