First Data helped launch Apple Pay in the UK.

As well as helping with developing the business across different regions, Cameron will join the international advisory board of First data and be charged with helping the chief executive and other figures with international advice and analysis.

Cameron has taken on previous roles, including chairman of the National Citizen Service Patrons, following the Brexit vote last year, which led him to stepping down as Prime Minister and Conservative Party leader.

Ahead of his role with First Data, the Former Prime Minister outlined his hopes, saying: “I am incredibly proud that during my time as Prime Minister, the United Kingdom became a global force in Fin-Tech. I remain passionate about the opportunities that exist for British and international companies that are developing exciting technologies both for businesses and consumers – technologies that have the potential to revolutionize the way we all live our lives.

“Frank and his team at First Data have had tremendous success over the years and I am delighted to work alongside them, continuing my association with the Fin-Tech sector, and supporting First Data enhance its international presence.”
