Financial benefits and discounts

Stock options: We offer everyone who works for us stock options as we’re building TransferWise together and want you to share in the success of our $3.5billion company on a mission.

Travel insurance on business trips: Whenever you’re going on a business trip, your health and luggage will be covered by our insurance provider.

Personal development: There’s no shortage of learning opportunities at TransferWise and it’s up to you to choose where you want to develop your skills. That’s why all our employees have a dedicated yearly allowance to boost their professional development.

Health and wellbeing

Employee Assistance Programme: Our assistance programme provides 24/7 expert guidance and specialist support on any issue, from everyday matters to more serious problems that affect our employee’s wellbeing. Available online, over the phone and face to face, it’s free for all employees and confidential.

Paid Sick leave: You can use 10 paid days of sick leave in a rolling 1 year period after passing the probation period.

Paid sabbatical: To reward the time and effort you’ll put into TransferWise after 4 years working here, you’ll have the option to take 6-weeks paid time off and £1,000 financial support in addition to your annual leave.

Flexible working: We positively encourage flexible working as we measure success through impact, not the amount of time you spend in the office. We’ll work out what’s best for you whether that’s different hours or working from home.

Annual leave: You’ll get 21 days annual leave per year to rest, relax and recharge your batteries.

Volunteering day off: All full-time, active employees are provided 8 hours of paid Volunteer Time on an annual basis.

A home away from home

Food and drinks: When you’re craving for a snack or a drink, you can find a variety of treats and drinks in our kitchen. Once a week we also have team lunch.

Social events and paid company trip: We arrange various local company events throughout the year, as well as coming together for larger gatherings with our colleagues around the world, for example, Mission Days. Every year, we take all our employees on a paid company trip. The goal is to bring everyone together, have fun, align on our goals and celebrate our mission.
