Ellis Benjamin

Major Account Manager

I joined Global Payments back in 2010, where I started on the Customer Helpdesk Team, I spent around 5 years in this role where I developed strong card processing and industry knowledge. After moving to the Telesales Team for 2 years, there was the opportunity to join the Client Relationship Team, which was a step up but also a step into another customer service driven department which was perfect for me and my progression. After a year on the team I was given the opportunity to apply for the role as a Major Account Manager, to which I was successful and I’m currently relishing the role and the challenges it brings.
Overall Global Payments is a great company to work for, who provide all the tools to create the perfect environment for growth.

Customer Service Delivery Support Associate

My journey started back in 1977 at Midland Bank, progressing through HSBC to Global Payments. This time has seen me undertaking debt counselling, lending, chief cashier, various admin roles to my current role in the UK Scanning Team. My current role allows me to get involved in other projects too including an off-site storage project, being part of the Wellbeing Group and getting involved in our charity fundraising days, ‘Challenge a Cricketer’ where I beat the Leicestershire Cricket Team at sit ups! I enjoy the work I do and all the extra things I have been able to be involved in during my 41 years of service.

Rupa Saparia

Compliance Manager

I joined the company in 2005 and started off completing admin tasks within the Operational teams, this led to becoming team leader for two different teams. Through the different opportunities that have been available to me, I have gained further experience and skills through working in various departments and with individuals at different levels. I have now been part of the Compliance team for 2 years where I manage the monitoring programme and assist the business with meeting regulatory requirements. The support I have personally received from the different individuals and management has been tremendous and allowed me to get to where I am today.
