What makes us Equifax?


"Equifax should be extremely proud and publicise to new starters the kinds of efforts they put in to retaining talent and things like this [wellbeing programme] really do make a huge difference. I'm proud to work for Equifax for many reasons but these kind of investments in people is definitely up there among the top reasons"

What can you do when you know more?

As a data and analytics company, we use trusted to use unique data, innovative analytics, technology and industry expertise to power organisations and individuals around the world. By transforming knowledge into insights that help make more informed business and personal decisions.

But, actually, in a nutshell, we’re just helping people and businesses make the best possible financial decisions and plans.

Decisions, decisions decisions 

We help consumers make better credit decisions by giving them insight into how decisions and actions affect their credit score and credit worthiness.  

We help businesses make informed credit decisions, supporting responsible lending which in turn ensures that consumers are only offered products and services that are suitable for their situation. This protects the consumer from bad debt and reduces the financial risk to the organisation; everybody wins.

We’re not like other data and analytics companies

We see ourselves as different from the competition. We offer our customers:

Businesses – A consultative and bespoke approach – we know that each organisation is different and work with our clients to solve specific problems – from evaluating credit risk, to compliance with a wide range of regulation, multi-layered fraud prevention and understanding the client’s customer base better to help unlock additional value.

Consumers – We help consumers to better understand their finances and protect their identities from fraud through our easy-to-use services and wealth of educational material. 

In addition to that, a few years ago we bought a debt recovery business, TDX Group. It means, unlike any of our competitors, we understand and see what happens when things go wrong and the impact improved data and insight can have on fair consumer treatment and preventing things going wrong again. We have the opportunity to offer our customers end-to-end solutions that streamline their collections processes, as well as deeper insights and analytics to optimise their efforts.

Who we work with

As well as helping consumers, we provide most the main high street names across banking, financial services, utilities, telco, media and local and central Government with products and services. We even jointly own a business with the UK Government (take a look at www.indesser.com).  

A key growth area for us is building partnerships with innovative Fintech businesses to bring new products to market. This way we are helping young, innovative businesses grow and playing an exciting part in bringing cutting edge new solutions to niche sectors.

The people who enjoy working here

The people who thrive at Equifax are those who want a career in a business that feels small enough to put your arms around, but big enough to bring you challenges both locally and further afield. We believe we truly offer the best of both worlds; a global organisation, with a local spirit.
