The Forum’s strategy has created a vision for the future of Payments in the UK, which now has a detailed Working Structure to progress the design and delivery work in 2017. 

To support the resource already in place, the Forum is seeking the knowledge and expertise of a diverse range of individuals and organisations to help drive its work by offering secondments to the Workstreams. This will offer members of the Payments Community a once-in-a-lifetime chance to become involved in this unique transformation of the Payments industry.

Members of the Payments Community who are interested in joining the Working Structures should consider the requirements listed and express their interest using the form below. All participants are expected to contribute in their capacity as individual experts, and not to promote or represent the views of their organisations.

All expressions of interest will be reviewed by the Chairs and Workstream Leads who will look to balance the participation of a range of stakeholders, against the creation of focussed and effective core teams.      

Expressions of interest should be submitted as soon as practicable, to be considered for the first round of resourcing. Confirmation will be provided by the end of March, after which time any new expressions of interest will be considered on a rolling basis. 

If any member of the Payments Community would like to discuss the outcome of this process they should contact the Forum Secretariat by email to forum@psr.org.uk.
