Monzo Job Posts 📢


(Alex Sherwood) #1

It’s fair to say that the email notifications for new Monzo job posts are still pretty temperamental & I know there’s at least a few community members who would like to work for Monzo :wink:

So I’ve created this topic to give us somewhere to post a heads up for everyone that there a new role has been added to Monzo’s careers page. The also have a company profile on StackOverflow Careers.

If you’re curious to see what the team gets up to, when they’re not reenacting scenes from The Matrix for our entertainment, I’ve been keeping a record of the job posts for a while here -

Also, if you’re looking for an overview of how Monzo works, this is a good place to start -

& the Monzo HQ blog posts cover everything from Monzo’s approach to diversity & transparency, to introductions to the heads of some of the teams -

You can use the topic controls at the bottom of this post to ‘watch’ the post & receive an email notification whenever a new post is added -

Hello :wave:t2:

This is a great idea Alex, thank you!

I’m now officially two months into my new role as Hiring Coordinator here at Monzo, so really keen to hear all of your brilliant ideas! :bulb:

I have started to send out job update emails at the start of every month so you can see all of our new roles. Any thoughts on how they can be improved would be amazing :+1:t2:

I will also be tweeting new positions and sharing them on Linkedin so keep your eyes peeled :eyes:

If you have any more ideas on where we can advertise new positions, I’d love to hear them!

Hello @alexs and @Bethtoms :wave:,

Speaking of jobs and keen community members, I wondered if you’re still accepting applications for the Content & Press Manager role, as I would love to apply! :raising_hand:

Hey Jess!

I don’t work for Monzo so I can’t be sure but since the role is still listed on the careers page, it looks like you still have a shot :slight_smile:

It’d be interesting to hear if Monzo would ever consider taking on Apprentices.
The opportunities to get into work through quality apprenticeships is getting much larger so it’d be interesting to hear if you lot would ever consider taking on one.

Hi Jacqueline :wave:t2:

Thanks for getting in touch! I’m sorry it has taken so long to get back to you :cry:

Looking forward to receiving your application!

Beth

Excellent! I’ll get my application over to you ASAP.

It would be great to see you get involved. As an apprenticeship myself I know how much of a difference I can make to the business and how much of a difference the business can have on me.
I’d probably look into the degree apprenticeships offered to get some inspiration.

This role was added to the careers page a couple of days ago but I forgot to post it :see_no_evil:


(Kenneth Cajigas) #12

I was also wondering if Monzo were going to get involved in providing apprenticeships. It would be cool if Monzo would provide opportunities for young people to gain experience in a Fintech Bank!

Maybe you guys could look into StepForward based in London who are an apprenticeship provider :smile: http://stepforward.uk.com/employers/ I’ve been a successful applicant for next year through their program.

Hey Kenneth,

We’d love to provide an experience like this for post-16 school leavers, especially for those who are exploring opportunities for personal and professional development as an alternative to further education or vocational training. What we could offer may not fit the conventional ‘apprenticeship’ mould, I think we’re still at the stage of figuring out how we can make this experience a valuable learning experience and an opportunity to encourage young talent to take their first steps to a career with our support and guidance. It’s something we discussed in lots of detail at the Sunny Side Up Brunch Workshop, you should take a look at the minutes if you have a chance!

The idea of partnering up with initiatives and organisations supporting young people in finding out more about ways to kick start their careers and further their education with hands-on experience in an industry setting. Beth may be able to elaborate on this a little! Again there were a few great suggestions on who would be good to reach out to from the community at the Brunch Workshop.

Here’s a couple more new posts, again these were posted a few days ago :grimacing: -

I’ve realised that this last role :arrow_up: was actually posted about a month ago but since it looks like people are interested, I thought I’d leave it up :slight_smile:

and what about the neglected 50+ group? There are many people that age who have lost jobs due to restructuring and downsizing but employers are reluctant to employ these more experienced staff in preference for younger cheaper staff.

Recently a number of companies acknowledged this growing problem and the following signed up to take positive action: Aviva, Atos, Barclays, the Co-operative Group, Home Instead Senior Care, the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS), Mercer and Walgreens Boots Alliance (which incorporates Boots the Chemist and Alliance Pharmacies).


(Naji Esiri) #16

Good point! This isn’t an area we’re currently focusing our efforts but 100% something we should be thinking about too. We’re committed to building a team with a variety of skills and life experience off the back of this, I think it’s how we promote and communicate relevant opportunities in the right places which we need to work on!

Hi, what’s the closing date on these positions? I really want to apply for the iOS role but I’m in the middle of exams and struggling to find time!


(Naji Esiri) #18

@craig24 There’s no closing date for this position so please do check back when you have the time! Good luck with your exams!

Here’s another reason to keep an eye on these posts :eyes:


(Alex Sherwood) #20

This role was posted a while ago but since almost the entire Monzo team have tweeted about it, in the past couple of days & Monzo are recruiting 2 Android engineers, I thought I’d post it again :slight_smile:

You can get a sense of what a typical day in this role looks like from today’s weekly diary post :heart_eyes:
