The opportunity

In the Payment & Settlement Utility (PSU) we are looking for two Contract & Service managers, reporting into the Head of the PSU. The implementation of the PSU is awaiting approval of the Works Council.

Your role and work environment

ING’s Payments and Settlement Utility (“PSU”) aims to further mature, develop and expand ING’s state of the art payments platforms and services. The PSU will focus on delivering payments and settlement services, meeting the expectations of ING’s business lines and beyond, whilst ensuring the basics: safe, secure, compliant and reliable. The PSU is an independent unit within ING’s CTO domain, reporting directly into ING’s Chief Technology Officer.

The PSU is responsible for providing standardized payments and settlement services to multiple ING business lines (WB, Retail and others). There is a clear ambition to also look for external commercialization of our payment platforms.

Within the PSU, the Contract & Service Management team consists of two Change Consultants who manage the contracts and service agreements between the Payments Utility and its clients.
