This week, I’m so happy to say we’ve got one of my favourite people at Monzo in the Hot Coral Hot Seat™️!
Leah Templeman (@leah) is one of those all-around awesome people for whom any particular job title just doesn’t seem to state enough about just how much she does and how much she brings to the company. In the past, she’s been our Head of Operations, more recently she’s done an incredible amount of work for our COps Scalers team (the team that helps all of our COps do the best job possible, addressing things like productivity, and improving tooling) and she has now become our Interim VP of People!
As I mentioned in a previous post, Leah was one of the people that did my interview way back in 2016, and she was also the first person at Monzo I ever spoke to, when she called me up after my initial application She immediately set the standard of the company I very quickly found Monzo to be - a company that cares about both staff and customers on a very deep level. I legitimately cannot imagine what this company would look like without her!
Leah has been here at Monzo since all the way back in February 2015 - she’s currently working on building out our awesome People team… and as for a Fun Fact, it’s a pretty cool one - Leah won Gold at the European Championships playing Lacrosse for England! Amazing!!!
Alright folks… Get your questions in, and Leah will be here later in the week to answer them!!!
