Senior Manager, Payments, Technology & Digital Risk, Financial Services, Risk Advisory (BB-9D407)

Found in: Neuvoo UK


As our Risk Advisory business continues to grow, we have an opportunity for a Payments Manager to join our established payments team within our Financial Services practice. The Payments industry is experiencing unprecedented levels of change as a result of technological and business model change, the advent of PSD2 and Open Banking, new FinTech challengers and major changes to the UK and Europe’s payment scheme infrastructures, and it is therefore an area of increasing strategic importance to our clients.

In light of increased market demand we are seeking to grow our Payments Risk team. We are seeking individuals with the drive, leadership and vision to help deliver our current portfolio of payments risk advisory and assurance engagements with a range of clients from the largest global financial services companies, payments schemes, major corporates and smaller emerging payments players. We are looking for high performing professionals that can also help us develop our market offerings and develop our practice further.

Our Payments Risk team works with organisations to help assess the critical risks and challenges facing their payments businesses and operations. Our specialists help our clients to manage and mitigate their payments risks, embed change within their payments IT and operations functions, understand the impact of regulation and emerging innovations, and address the challenges facing their businesses.

If you have experience of Payments Risk either from Industry or Professional Services, we would like to speak to you.
