RTGS career opportunities

Be part of the team that’s helping to transform the UK payments industry.


Our Real-Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) service contributes directly to our mission to maintain monetary and financial stability.

RTGS infrastructure settles over £600bn a day, which is close to the UK’s GDP every three days. It hosts reserves accounts for the implementation of monetary policy and provides inter-bank settlement for CHAPS, CREST and the retail payment schemes. The RTGS Renewal Programme will deliver a materially stronger, more resilient, flexible and innovative sterling settlement infrastructure.
