📍London | 💰£85,000 - £100,000 + Benefits | Hear from the team ✨|

Why Monzo?

We’re here to make money work for everyone and 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 suggests features, test the app and give us constant feedback so we can build something everyone loves.

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.

The Role

We're looking for an experienced Senior PR professional to develop and lead a consumer PR strategy around our brand marketing activities. You’ll be part of a busy press office, working closely with the Brand Marketing team to create and drive ideas that push boundaries and challenge the norm, showcasing our brand moments and attributes to new media audiences. You’ll need to be an exceptional communicator and a strong collaborator with the ability to multitask. 

This role is for a senior leader who is a doer, you see the big picture but are not afraid to get your hands dirty and approach projects in a collaborative manner. You’ll be reporting directly to the Director of Communications and join two Senior PR Managers, a Senior Corporate Communications Manager and a PR Manager.

Responsibilities:

  • Developing and leading on proactive PR strategies for consumer audiences- both short and long term
  • Collaborating and working hand-in-hand with senior leaders across marketing, agency partners and the wider business 
  • Analysing data and making data-driven decisions to measure strategy effectiveness - including setting up measurements of success (i.e KPIs) and managing the performance of strategies and campaigns
  • Being the key connection point between the PR and Communications team and Brand Marketing 
  • Being an excellent team player and senior leader within a small, high-performing team 

You should apply if you have:

  • A track record of leading creative “big bang” projects for consumer audiences 
  • Experience in development and executing on exciting consumer PR strategies 
  • You will have managed both small and large scale campaigns as well as day to day press activities
  • Stellar written and verbal communication skills and experience 
  • Experience of working within a fast-paced environment 
  • Examples of how you have raised the bar across consumer-facing projects you have worked on that demonstrate both out of the box creativity and outstanding results. 
  • Experience managing a variety of stakeholders and collaborating with multiple teams 
  • Passion and ambitions for the Monzo brand! 

The Interview Process:

Our interview process involves four main stages: 

  • Recruiter Call (30 min)
  • Initial Call (30 min)
  • 2x final interviews via Google Meet (45 min each)

Our average process takes around 2-3 weeks but we will always work around your availability. You will have the chance to speak to our recruitment team at various points during your hiring process, but if you do have any specific questions before this please contact us on business-hiring@monzo.com. Please also use that email to let us know if there's anything we can do to make your application process easier for you, because of disability, neurodiversity or any other personal reason.
