How old is everyone?


#1

A few of us will probably be wary of posting their age, but for those of us that aren’t, how old are you (approximately)?

I’m probably one of the youngest at 18. :upside_down_face:

It’d be cool if Monzo could chime in here with some mean and median age statistics or even some sort of distribution data. :crossed_fingers:


How old are we?

I’m 21 :slight_smile: I originally assumed there would be more people around 18-22 since there was a period of time Monzo had campaigns to university students, but it doesn’t seem to be the case. I feel like there was an age statistic awhile back in a blog post/update but it must have changed since then. I love seeing cute little graphics and graphs, so it’ll be nice to see more! I think atm Monzo is still used mostly in London, haven’t seen it about town/ on my uni campus.

Yeah, think you’re right. I’m yet to see another person (that I haven’t referred) with a Monzo card in public.

Personally, I am in my early 50s

I’m 40 turning 41 this year. We are a Monzo household! I was the first adopter, then recruited my husband and our daughters aged 19 and 20.

Well, this is quite the opposite of what I expected.

Adding on to my previous comment about not seeing it about campus: a lot of peers I’ve introduced it to are on overdrafts/ are reluctant to put money into a card before they see it/ don’t have that money to spare. I’ve had more luck introducing it to fellow international students like me who travel quite a bit, with the main selling point being the no overseas fees instead of using it for regular use.

I thought people my age would be really intrigued by all the cool icons!! pretty layout!! greater control over categories!! brightly coloured card!! but they’ve been pretty reluctant to put in the effort to make the switch. :woman_shrugging:t2: the contacts list is quite useless to me as a result.

@awn There are some interesting stats on the team make-up in Maria’s blog post on diversity from a few months back. Definitely worth a look if you haven’t already!


#16

Used to be the same for me, but it’s slowly getting there! Have about 6 people on my contacts that I know and have referred.

@Naji Wow, that’s actually really good. It’s quite refreshing, you’re definitely leading the way in diversity in the workplace. One question though, relegious diversity wasn’t mentioned, any stats on that?


(Naji Esiri) #17

There’s a way to go, but we’re aware of what we need to do to get there :slightly_smiling_face:

I will defer to @mcampbell on that one! I’m sure there will be a good reason this wasn’t included and Maria may have some additional insights off the back of this post’s research.


(Maria) #18

We did ask “what is your religion, if any” but it was a free-form text box, and about 1/3 left it blank which could mean no religion, or could mean they’d prefer not to say. So I could slice it a bunch of ways but don’t think given the ambiguity there’s a huge amount of useful insight you could reliably draw from it.

We learnt a heap of things from doing that survey - there are things we didn’t ask that I wish we had (like disability!), and questions we could have asked better. The next post will be way more interesting :sunglasses:

Editing to add: I’m going to be 30 dangerously soon :eyes:

I am days away from 35. Or about half way to retirement.
