Women In FinTech

Engaging, connecting and inspiring all to be an integral part of the Fintech revolution

The term ‘Fintech’ brings together the industries of Finance and Technology – both of which had a past of being male dominated industries.

But here at Fintech Services Australia, we look to the future and are driven by our diverse and inclusive culture. We are committed to supporting equality and encouraging all individuals who may be hesitant to enter this industry, to feel welcomed and know that every employee has an important part to play in our successful and thriving business. We celebrate individuals for their attributes and contributions, whether they are female, male or non-binary, which allows us to excel collaboratively and produce superior innovative solutions to shake up the Fintech industry.

Creating an environment of inclusivity is a team effort and we continue to strive to embed this in our culture. Welcoming all is key to our success as well as breaking down any outdated perceptions that specific genders are better suited for certain industries. Below are testimonials from four current FSA staff who entered our Fintech world and are thriving in their roles, feel valued for their contributions and embrace the work-life balance that FSA offers.

Women In Fintech
  • Suzie

    Chief People Officer

    “Adding value and feeling valued is really what makes a job engaging for me. Here at FSA, it is clear how we all add value and in turn feel a part of something exciting and rewarding, regardless of who, what and where we are from as people. I love how we cultivate and celebrate our differences and are inclusive of all humans. It’s a rare ingredient unfortunately missing from many workplaces. I feel incredibly proud and privileged to be a part of one that makes such a culture a priority”

  • Jen

    Head of Marketing

    “Working at FSA has been fun and rewarding whilst being fast paced at the same time. I have met some incredible people at FSA as there is wealth of knowledge and experience within the teams. I enjoy working at FSA as I have found the culture to be friendly, supportive and collaborative. In addition to this, I really appreciate the various events such as morning teas, cultural celebrations etc. that we have as it shows the diversity and how we embrace everything at FSA.”

  • Sharan

    System Assistant

    “I’ve been working for FSA for more than 2 years now. When I first started, I was the only female in the development team and the team was very welcoming and helpful from day one, soon becoming like family to me. Since then, I have welcomed more colleagues into the technical team and the company overall. Being a mum to two young kids there are sometimes challenges to manage both work and life, but FSA are very flexible and support a good work life balance. I can see they give me and my fellow colleagues equal opportunities for growth and development. They are all great people to work with and I truly enjoy coming to work every day.”

  • Ashleigh

    Change Analyst

    “My journey with FSA started as a User Acceptance tester about 1 year ago. Coming from my previous job where I was surrounded by strong women, I was unsure at first how I would adjust. I quickly learned, however, that here at FSA, gender does not matter, and everyone is equally supported and encouraged to grow and develop. Within the year, I have progressed from User Acceptance Tester to Change Analyst and my development plan is to further my education in Change Management.”

  • Amanda

    Media & Partnerships

    “My career began in the IT&T industry and now I am in Fintech. I enjoy being in Fintech because it means you get to work with incredibly bright minds, and gender is irrelevant. It is a dynamic environment and I feel lucky to work here, where we are valued independently of our sex and our career options are diverse.”

  • Rachel

    Senior Content Specialist

    “I find it incredibly rewarding to work for FSA and in the fast-paced Fintech industry. The fantastic culture and genuine work-life balance is not something I’ve experienced in previous industries, but they have a marked impact on my drive, my productivity, and my development aspirations. Working here definitely provides an exciting, collaborative and high-energy environment for everyone to thrive in.”
