We’re looking for an expert in financial crime with extensive knowledge of business banking to join our fast-growing Fincrime team here in London. You’ll play a strategic role in fighting fincrime and have overall responsibility for how Monzo approaches business banking in the UK. You’ll need to be a dab-hand at managing people, projects and investigations, but you’ll need to be ready to get hands-on too.
You should know that we fight financial crime a little differently at Monzo. You’ll work in a team with dedicated financial crime engineers and data scientists, which helps us to spot, assess and prevent crime quickly. We choose not to split out different areas of crime, either. Instead we tackle all financial crime together as one team. That includes AML, fraud, sanctions breaches, terrorist financing, bribery and corruption and tax evasion. You should know each of these, and how they affect business banking, like the back of your hand.
We’re the UK’s fastest growing bank, with 1.4 million customers and nearly 700 employees. We need a crack team of crime fighters to help us stay one step ahead as we continue to grow.
You should apply if:
Startup experience, management experience or experience working with UK regulators are all a bonus, but not required.
We care deeply about inclusive working practices and diverse teams. If you’d prefer to work part-time or as a job-share, we’ll facilitate this wherever we can - whether to help you meet other commitments or to help you strike a great work-life balance.
We’re keen to make sure we’re designing a bank that works for everyone, so we particularly encourage applications from different underrepresented demographics.
We started Monzo in February 2015 with the mission of building the best current account in the world. In April 2017, we received our full UK banking licence from the FCA and PRA and are now working hard to roll out our free current account later this year.
We're focused on solving problems, rather than selling financial products. We want to make the world a better place and change people's lives through Monzo.We're doing things differently. For too long, banking has been obtuse, complex and opaque.We want to change that and build a bank with everyone, for everyone. Our amazing community of users suggests features, tests the app and gives us constant feedback so we can build something we all love.
