Job Description

Visa recognizes that operating a successful company is about much more than delivering strong returns to shareholders. We strive to make a positive, and ideally transformative impact on the world, based on the belief that doing well can and should mean doing good, particularly for a global organization like Visa whose business is connecting the world to enhance financial inclusion.

Through our mission of helping micro and small enterprises thrive, we strive to be a catalyst for growth and positive change around the world. By harnessing our capital, our assets, our people, and our knowledge, we are focused on helping set millions of microenterprises globally on a path to growth. We see micro and small enterprises as the backbone of the global economy, and our goal is to empower these enterprises and improve their livelihoods, ultimately creating a ripple effect throughout their communities.

These efforts build on the strong legacy of social impact Visa has created through corporate giving, financial inclusion and financial literacy. We support broader community needs and humanitarian responses in times of crises, are committed to acting responsibly through environmental, social and governance and our more than 17,000 employees contribute to communities in meaningful ways through volunteering and charitable giving.

To date, we have achieved significant progress – in 2017 alone, we empowered 100+ million net-new cardholders, educated millions of consumers through financial literacy programmes, facilitated nearly $2M of employee charitable giving and 34,000+ volunteer hours, and announced a commitment to transition to 100% renewable electricity within two years.

However, there is more for us to achieve. We are embarking on a new, exciting era and expanding our team so we can move Visa towards becoming a global leader and influencer of governments, non-governmental organizations, and other for-profit companies.
