Staff testimonials

I chose to work for Cifas because it was clear from the onset that they are a company with strong values, and want to look after their staff. The opportunity to work in collaboration with experts in the fraud prevention industry at such a well-respected company was one that instantly attracted me to the role. Having been in my role for six months, I’ve had incredible opportunities to develop both professionally and personally, and would highly recommend it as a place to work.

The thing I appreciate most about working at Cifas is that it has given me the opportunity to balance my work and personal life by allowing me to work part time. I managed to contribute a lot to my team and I still have time for my family. Working with my manager has been a great experience and I enjoy his steady leadership and his drive to provide a great consumer experience.

I joined Cifas after finding a passion for fraud prevention during a previous investigative role. My position within the Compliance Team has provided me with a new challenge and the excitement I was looking for. The role is varied and there is always something to keep me busy. From the very first day everyone has been so welcoming and provided me with all the support needed. I have received great training, which is always being renewed and delivered in an engaging way. Working for a leading company in fraud prevention with great perks, flexibility and a collaborative environment are just a few reasons why I love working here!

- Luke, Compliance Officer

After working in law enforcement for over eight years the opportunity to work for a leading fraud prevention organisation was an attractive prospect to me. Cifas engages with a range of organisations across a number of sectors including banking, telecommunications and law enforcement which makes working for Cifas both interesting and varied. In particular, supporting and collaborating with a range organisations to identify and respond to new threats and trends in fraud is particularly rewarding. Cifas is committed to providing a motivating and friendly environment for all staff, this was evident on my first day and remains a key feature of Cifas’ longer term vision.

- Duncan, Fraud Intelligence Specialist

I chose to work at Cifas because of our purpose behind why we exist as an organisation – helping hundreds of organisations and thousands of individuals across the UK to fight and prevent fraud, including some of the most vulnerable people in our society. This strong purpose behind why Cifas exists made it stand out for me among other companies I could have chosen to work for. The values of the organisation also resonated with me, especially collaboration and integrity – as I felt these would enable a business culture that genuinely supports and cares for the people that work here. I love working here not only because of our purpose, but also the way I was made to feel so welcome when I joined and supported by everyone across the business. There is a friendly, supportive and welcoming environment here, and a great office space too! Cifas is an organisation with a fantastic purpose that genuinely cares for its people and lives its values.
