About Inspire Payments
Our Payments Experts already have over 50 years experience in the merchant services and payments sector. We've talked to thousands of small and medium business owners over the years, and they all tell us the same thing, they're fed up with expensive credit card machines and slow payments. So, we've invested in: low cost, hi-tech, payment card terminals with super fast connection and faster payments; your customers' payments will be in your bank account on the next working day.
Honesty is a big, and sometimes difficult word in the merchant services sector, and we thrive on our commitment to integrity; that's the real difference at Inspire Payments. You won't find sharp, shiny-suited sellers here, instead you can talk to a genuine Payments Expert and get help to find a great merchant services deal, as well as giving you the support and advice you need.
We've made our home in the heart of Yorkshire in Leeds, but we're already growing fast, and pretty soon there will be one of our Payments Experts near your business, wherever you are in the UK.
I specialise in permanent placements for part to newly qualified accountants across Yorkshire. I began my career in recruitment in 2019 after previously working in finance myself. I have a strong client base across multiple industry sectors and I work with a variety of businesses.
