Women enjoying rewarding careers at Western Union

Meet Katherine, Accountant at Western Union

"I joined WU as an Accounting Associate in 2014, and really like the excellent culture and climate that can be felt from the first day you arrive. I’ve had the opportunity to grow and develop my leadership skills, and I love the chance I have in my role now to interact with even more members of the team; helping them and learning from them every day. I’m also inspired by the great impact WU has for many people and businesses around the world as they send money to each other. Outside of work, I spend time with family and friends, listening to good music and running. I also love traveling because there are so many new places and things to discover. Life motto: Treat people the way you want them to treat you."

Meet Abimbola, Senior. Manager, AML Compliance at Western Union

"I love being part of such a diverse, global team. Starting out in the Africa regional Compliance team, I got to have a real impact with our business partners, helping to ensure the safety of money transfers. Although I have since advanced to a more coordinating role, it remains important to me to make a difference in the world, and I do that here every day. WU enables people and businesses to send money globally to those who need it. That’s what “moving money for better” is all about, and why everything we do starts with our customers. I have experienced this first-hand as student receiving money my parents sent via WU to support my education. Now living over 5,000 miles away, WU’s great customer experience makes it so easy for me to contribute to the wellbeing of my family back home. Life motto: Push limits, and break boundaries."

Meet Asma, Senior Manager, Business Development at Western Union

"I love working on digital products at WU, and being part of the future of money transfer. I get to work across the Middle East and Africa and get great insights on customer needs through multicultural exposure. It means a lot to me that I can make a difference in our customers’ lives by offering convenient channels for them to send and receive money. WU is constantly reinventing itself to match the pace of evolving customer needs. This helps us become more efficient and be a great place to work. Constantly evolving to become better is a big part of what we call the WU Way. Our success is measured by our customers, and they are the focus of everything we do across all functions. I’m driven by a need to learn new things every day, and achieve my goals in the best way possible. I’m passionate about traveling because I think it not only allows us to discover new places and cultures, but also reveals aspects of ourselves that help us grow. Life motto: “Follow your dreams, believe in yourself and don’t give up.” – Rachel Corrie"

Meet Rashi, Generalist, Human Resources at Western Union

"I wake up every day feeling grateful that in my role I get to make a difference in the lives of those who are building their careers with WU. I can make critical decisions and add value to our organization. I like how WU is so centered on its purpose of moving money for better and continually using and creating cutting-edge technology for our customers. They are the reason we exist. They trust us and depend on us, and I want to honor that. Away from work, I’m a national level basketballer, a certified scuba diver and skydiver, a yoga pro, an explorer and traveler, a trekker and a musician. Pretty much, I’m an adrenaline junkie. Life motto: Take that step…it won’t end the world!"
