The Payment Systems Regulator Limited (PSR) is the economic regulator for the £81 trillion payment systems industry in the UK. Our statutory objectives underpin everything we do. In summary these are:

  • to ensure that payment systems are operated and developed in a way that considers and promotes the interests of all the businesses and consumers that use them
  • to promote effective competition in the markets for payment systems and services - between operators, PSPs and infrastructure providers
  • to promote the development of and innovation in payment systems, in particular the infrastructure used to operate those systems

As a diverse, forward-facing organisation which is continually working to drive improvements for everyone who uses payment systems, we’re looking for people who share our openness and determination.
