Full time Finance Management

Job Description

We’re looking for an expert in financial crime to join our fast-growing Fincrime team here in London. You’ll work across different areas and products, including current accounts, business banking and international accounts. You’ll report directly to our Head of Financial Crime and play a strategic role in fighting fincrime. 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 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:

  • You understand the financial crime risks associated with banking.
  • You’ve got experience communicating with senior internal and external stakeholders.
  • You take a strategic approach to managing risk and prioritising work.
  • You know when to delegate versus when to jump in and do something yourself.
  • You’re excited about working in a cross-functional team with engineers and data scientists.
  • You’re into using automated processes to find more efficient ways of working.
  • You want to manage fincrime analysts and help them to grow professionally.


We offer a competitive salary (taking into account experience and any specialism) plus stock options and lots of other benefits.

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.
