Hi folks, Danny here, new to the community so an all round hello to you all and merry xmas in advance.
Ok folks so i appreciate this request may be a little random, but i am reaching out for advice from you all and in some cases maybe your help.
I have applied for 3 positions within Monzo, two being the calls and social media, aiming mainly at the out of hours placement. This particular role was attractive, as I am moving to South Africa for 6 months in January 2019, and the hours required would work perfectly given the minor time difference.
Unfortunately due my modest experience required for the placement requirements I did not get invited to the interview stages. I completely understand the system and anyone with more experience is understably going to be more favourable in this situation. However i must confess, I am a little gutted. It hasn’t though deterred me from continuing to knock on the door in the hope of working with Monzo. I genuinely want this.
I want to approach this in the right way, I would happily work 10 hours per week for Monzo for free, in exchange for the opportunity to gain the relevant experience necessary to make any future applications on my behalf more desirable.
I appreciate this may seem unusual but like i initially mentioned, the hours are suitable and I would like very much to join the Monzo team. Even if it did meen investing my own time for free in order to better my chances.
Many thanks in advance and once again, Merry xmas for later this month.
