Our Finance Department
There are five Finance teams. Each team has its own set of responsibilities, objectives and goals but are united by a common vision. Take a look below to find out what each team does.
Management and Statutory Accounts Team
The team prepares management and statutory accounts for a number of companies under multiple reporting standards; including FRS 102, IFRS and US GAAP. The complexity is demanding and intellectually rewarding.
There is a strong emphasis on communication as the team manages numerous relationships with advisors and auditors across the globe to coordinate the reporting, preparation and filing of accounts. Whilst also providing commercial reporting to our overseas partners, which is an exciting and growing part of the business.
Financial Reporting, Planning and Analysis Team
This team's aim is to provide timely financial information to support strategic decision making. This exciting objective involves coordinating the Group budget, preparing forecasts, developing business plans for new markets, and much more. We work with other departments around the world in a vibrant environment.
Bank Reconciliation Team
This team oversees the design and implementation of new systems, controls and processes, ensuring funds are correctly applied to customer accounts. Working in a fast-paced environment, you will have regular contact with Product Development, MIS and Payment teams, whilst working on projects which range from the introduction of new payment methods to developing new reconciliations for emerging markets.
Regulatory Returns Team
This team has a heavy focus on project work when we enter a new market; analysing the regulations, setting up new processes and collaborating with other departments within bet365 and external regulators. Once we are live in a new regulated market, the team are responsible for fulfilling the financial regulatory requirements including the preparation and payment of the taxes, regulatory reporting, reconciliations and audits. The variation of tasks mean no day is ever the same.
Operational Finance Team
The engine room of Finance, this team pays all of the Company’s invoices, for multiple worldwide companies using a number of different banks. This is a constantly changing and challenging environment with demanding deadlines. This team is at the forefront of every new country launch and project, often on the critical path. If you think you can handle high pressure, this could be the team for you.

I joined the bet365 Finance Team nearly 3 years ago after completing my Finance degree. Initially, I learned the basics, the structure, the culture, and how the business operates, subsequently moving on to tasks such as process improvements, training new staff and, best of all, project work on new developments.
As the company has expanded into newly regulated markets, project work has been an increasingly important part of our work and is my favourite part of the job. It is rewarding to be part of a new market launch; from the early stage of planning through to the ’go-live’ launch and then ensuring all the post ’go-live’ requirements are met. And there seems to be an endless stream of new projects.
A key ethos of the company is constant improvement, of both our work and our personal skills and understanding. I’ve been able to learn, not just from my managers, but also from other team members and other departments.
The Finance team works collaboratively to achieve its goals. The team is, for me, the best thing about working at bet365. We are active socially outside of work, with my immediate team and as the whole finance department. This has helped create a vibrant and positive culture in work.
The company promotes obtaining your accountancy qualification as quickly as possible. To achieve this, the company provides funding for study support to complete your qualifications. I’m currently half way through CIMA. There’s lots of other students in the department so there’s always plenty of support from them, and advice from others who are now qualified.
My managers have always been very approachable and supportive, in my time I’ve progressed to a Team Leader and I know that with the constant expansion of the company, opportunities for progression will always be there, especially after completing my qualifications.
