Diversity and inclusion at the PSR

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.

In order to represent the people and organisations that we serve, we’re committed to building and sustaining a diverse and inclusive workplace. Our commitments are inclusive of but not limited to: race & ethnicity; LGBT+; disability; mental and physical health; and social mobility.

Our corporate responsibility, purpose and commitment are important parts of our identity, both as an employer and regulator. It relates to how we as a business, take into account the social, environmental and financial impacts of our decisions and actions so we contribute positively to the wider community and our environment.

We are experiencing unprecedented times across the world, so it is even more important that our commitment to diversity and inclusion is absolutely clear. We want to encourage all of our people to feel confident that they can bring their whole selves to work everyday.

We are proud signatories of the Women in Finance Charter.
