NPA Programme Advisory Groups

NPA Programme Advisory Groups

To support Pay.UK with the design and delivery of the NPA, the programme continues to utilise a mixture of existing engagement channels including Advisory Groups. Our Advisory Groups provide us with a rich source of expertise from across the payments industry on issues from security and resilience, to operations and transition.

Becoming a member of an Advisory Group means that you will provide valuable personal expertise and experience to the NPA programme on a specific element of our work to design this this once in a generation change to the UK payments landscape.

We encourage individuals with relevant subject matter knowledge, skills and experience as outlined within the Terms of References below to apply for our open calls for interest.
