Job Description

We’re looking for a practical, collaborative and experienced Assistant Company Secretary to support our board and Company Secretary. This is an opportunity to help establish and develop new systems and processes and work closely with the legal and governance teams to make sure we are fully compliant.

You’ll spend your time:

  • Helping to organise our board and committee meetings by creating board and committee agendas, collating and distributing papers on time and minute taking!
  • Working with the Company Secretary and the Finance team with Monzo’s annual reports and accounts.
  • Keeping up to date with legal developments and sharing this internally.
  • Onboarding new directors and board members for Monzo.
  • Helping Monzo comply with any corporate governance obligations under the FRC Corporate Governance Code and Guide to Board Effectiveness, the PRA and the FCA rule book.
  • Looking after our filings and returns on Companies House.
  • Dealing with requests from our shareholders/investors.
  • Turning your hand to all aspects of board administration and board diary management.
  • And much more!

You should apply if:

  • You love all things governance and have started to study for your ICSA qualification or are part qualified.
  • You’re great at communication with people from all different backgrounds and you can build relationships really easily.
  • You’re the first person to put your hand up and solve a problem.
  • You’re a stickler for detail.
  • You have great organisational skills.

At Monzo, we believe there’s a better way to do banking

We really care about providing a phenomenal experience for our customers, and we want to be the best possible bank without getting stuck in the old ways of doing things, or trying to duplicate how governance advice is given or how Company Secretarial teams are structured as seen in other organisations.

We’re at the start of our journey to serve a billion customers

We’ve made some good progress so far! We now have more than 600 staff, over a million lovely customers and a full UK banking licence. We have a current account and overdraft, and lots more planned.



The application process consists of a short phone interview with a recruiter, followed by a longer technical call with the hiring manager and a couple of on-site interviews at our office in London.

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.

Competitive salary (taking into account experience and any specialism) plus stock options and lots of other benefits.
