HR Associate (Financial Sector)

HR Associate London  About the Programme The world of payments is changing rapidly. New innovative technologies are being developed to meet the changing needs but these can give rise to new threats to users of the payments system, and to the stability of that system as a whole. This means that we need ever stronger protections and more resilient infrastructure. The Real-Time Gross Settlement System (RTGS) lies at the heart of UK payments. In total, RTGS settles around £600bn of payments each day which is close to the UK’s annual GDP every 3 days. The RTGS infrastructure is over 20 years old and, despite its excellent operational record, it needs to be modernised and developed to meet today’s needs. Balancing the safeguarding of stability whilst enabling innovation. The RTGS Renewal Programme has been established to develop the next generation of the Bank of England’s Real-Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) system. The way payments are made has changed dramatically in recent years, reflecting changes in the needs of households and companies, changes in technology, and an evolving regulatory landscape. The range of payment providers is growing rapidly. The Bank also wants to use the latest technology to help to reduce risks and increase innovation and competition in payments, and in the financial sector more broadly. The implications of these changes for the Bank’s mission and for users, businesses and regulators mean it is important that the Bank considers how RTGS will need to evolve to meet and shape payments trends in the coming decades. Job Description You will work with the wider People Team, the business, and collaborate with HR teams...
