The New Payment System Operator (NPSO) is the new payments industry body which consolidates the three main UK retail Payment System Operators to promote competition and innovation and better meet the needs of all users.

The NPSO is establishing an End User Council, which will operate as a non-executive advisory group to the Board. The End User Council will be chaired by an Independent Non- Executive Member of the Board. It will bring together the interests of individual consumers and institutional users. Each member of the End User Council will bring specialist knowledge and understanding of one or more end user groups, and together they will advise the NPSO Board on end user needs, now and in future. They will support strategy development, help identify risks in relation to NPSO activities that might impact end users, and will make recommendations to the NPSO on its rules, standards, policies and practices.

The NPSO wishes to appoint a number of independent consumer interest members, including some with expertise in consumers in vulnerable circumstances or experiencing financial disadvantage. Alongside these, will be some members from public, private and not- for-profit user organisations, such as: small businesses, charities, corporations, non- governmental organisations and Government departments. We would also be interested in some candidates who work at the interface of payments systems and their users, such as app designers.

We are looking for people from a wide range of backgrounds. All candidates must be capable of operating at a non-executive level, and of thinking strategically about end user perspectives.

Payment systems in the UK are going through unprecedented structural and technological changes, and this represents an exciting opportunity to join a body which will shape the future of the sector.

Saxton Bampfylde Ltd is acting as an employment agency advisor to the NPSO on these appointments.
