SWIFT enables its users to exchange automated, standardised financial information securely and reliably, thereby lowering costs, reducing operational risk and eliminating operational inefficiencies. SWIFT also brings the financial community together to work collaboratively to shape market practice, define standards and debate issues of mutual interest. SWIFT is headquartered in Belgium and has over 24 offices worldwide. SWIFT processes more than 5.6 billion FIN messages per year.
Since its official launch in 2017, SWIFT gpi (global payments innovation), on its way to become the new norm for cross-border payments, has been adopted at an unprecedented pace by the banks and their corporate clients. SWIFT gpi is a service that ensures cross-border payments are fast, trackable across multiple banks in real time, and delivers confirmation when the beneficiary account is credited.
SWIFT gpi is a highly strategic initiative, for which we have high ambitions going forward in terms of product roadmap and service evolution.
SWIFT gpi will continue to be about reach and live adoption, with more and more traffic turning gpi as banks are massively joining. In parallel, SWIFT gpi will evolve towards more sophisticated value-add features, going into the longer-term direction of a true API-based platform.
To help us achieve such ambitions, we look for a gpi sales expert, who will support EMEA in delivering the operating plans for gpi in the coming years, and contribute to this major transformation in the payments landscape.
You will drive SWIFT's commercial development in SWIFT gpi, supporting several sales teams across EMEA. You will be accountable for achieving challenging sales objectives, defining and executing go-to-market and commercial plans in collaboration with relationship managers, collecting market needs and feeding Marketing experts with service evolution ideas and contribute to thought leadership on the evolution of the payments business.
The position is based in La Hulpe (BE).
