Lee Jenkins PayStream Journey
Tom Sweeney | Marketing Executive
Monday 20th Nov, 2023
Lee joined PayStream almost 2 years ago, initially on a temporary basis before becoming a permanent member of our Agency Support team. We wanted to learn a little bit more about Lee and his journey at PayStream.
1. Tell us a little bit about yourself and what brought you to PayStream?
Before joining PayStream I worked as a Sales Manager for around 15 years. I was looking for a change of pace and whilst on the lookout I took a 3-month temporary role working in the Onboarding department at PayStream. As the 3 months were coming to an end, there was an open position in the Agency Support team as a permanent employee, so I decided to apply and luckily I got the job!
2. What is a typical day at PayStream like?
I’m currently working a hybrid role whereby I look after my own patch of agencies for half of the day and the other half I work in the Agency Support team. As a result of this, every day is busy, however it is varied and very rewarding.
3. How does PayStream compare to your previous workplaces?
There is a gulf between PayStream and my previous workplaces. I work normal hours in a company with a great culture and most of all I don’t get disturbed by work, outside of work hours. I feel like I have a great work life balance for the first time in a long time.
4. What three words would you use to describe PayStream?
Friendly, supportive, rewarding.
5. What do you enjoy most about working at PayStream?
I know it’s cliché however it really is the people. Not just from a fun and friendly perspective but the support you get on a daily basis is like nowhere I have worked before.
6. What would people be surprised to learn about you?
I have my own allotment where I grow organic vegetables and my favourite holiday destination is Croatia. I’ve been for the last 8 years, and it’s now a running joke in the office! (Those that know, know!)
7. What are your favourite things to do outside of work?
I play snooker in a local league. I’m nowhere near professional, however I did get a 54 break in the league last season (3rd highest break by anyone that season). As mentioned above, I have the allotment and I am also a life long Manchester City fan.
Are you a PayStream Person?
We are really proud to say that Lee's positive PayStream experience is just one of many. That’s because we understand that our employees are our greatest asset so we put our people at the heart of everything we do.
When recruiting we look for like-minded individuals who will embrace the culture of the company, which is why we've developed a 'PayStream Person' which we believe encapsulates our star performers and therefore, in every new recruit we look for the following qualities: bright, personable, adaptable and a strong work ethic.
So if PayStream sounds like it would be a good fit for you and you are interested in joining the team email firstname.lastname@example.org.
