A PSD2 Project Manager is required in Amsterdam be part of a project team working on PSD2. A Banking or Financial background is fine for this position. You will need experience of Open Banking and API’s along with PDS2 and the RTS. Any payments experience would be a bonus. Ideally you will have more than three years of experience in a similar Business Analyst, Project Manager or Coordinator roles.

PSD is a Directive's that was designed to increase pan-European competition and participation in the payments industry, in particular from non-banks, and to provide a level playing field by harmonizing consumer protection and the rights and obligations for payment providers and users. PSD2 takes the directive further and has some profound implications for the financial services industry.

PSD2 includes some quite significant changes relating to customer authentication (SCA) and account access (XS2A). PSD2 will also allow none-banks (Third Party Providers or TTPS) to initiate payments on behalf of the customer after gaining secure access to accounts.
