About the Client

Card Scheme Compliance is often something that is neglected in many payment organisations. With this client it is at the forefront of their mind. Within any organisation, whether it be experiencing rapid expansion or just on to the scene, you should have someone in place who can make sure you will not get caught out by the schemes! This client is a worldwide payment player, offering solutions on both online and mobile platforms. The vast amount of products they offer allows them to support many different businesses within eCommerce, mCommerce, and POS to the highest standard.

About the Job

A heavily compliance focused role which must not neglect the relationship management side. Imagine if there was no one to accumulate and consolidate the ever increasing amount of bulletins that the Card Schemes send through in order to adhere to local or regional legislation… No payments would be processed. Chargebacks would be going through the roof and merchants lowering revenue left, right and centre! In order to be on top of the game when it comes to Card Scheme Compliance, you need to hold very strong and effective relationships with the Schemes. This will allow you to obtain the bulletins so far in advance that any potential threats your business/merchants may face due to changes can be solved way before they even needed to be. Now that would make for a very smooth business.

Questions to ask yourself

  • When has there been an occasion when bulletins needed to be implemented and were to cause major disruption to a merchant’s activity? What did you do to combat this?
  • Which card schemes have you worked with? Or are you most knowledgeable about?
  • How extensively have you been involved in license applications?
  • How do you think PSD2 effects this role?
  • How do you manage your relationships with the schemes?
  • Have the businesses you covered represented low risk or high risk? Which verticals?
  • What countries from a legal standpoint do you have the most knowledge about?

Things to keep in mind

  • You must have worked at an Acquirer
  • You must speak English
  • You must have strong knowledge of European legislation
