We're looking for experienced Fraud Advisors to join our team on 21st March 2022 

At Monzo, we’re building a new kind of bank. One that lives in your smartphone and helps you take control of your money. We are always here to help as every customer gets access to 24/7 customer support through a quick call, social media, emails and our app

We want to delight our customers in any way possible. Our mission is to make money work for everyone, and while having a great app is part of that, we pride ourselves on providing world-class support. By solving customers’ problems, treating them fairly and being totally transparent, we believe we can make banking better

Fraud and Disputes at Monzo

The Fraud and Dispute team at Monzo covers a wide range of areas. They help us achieve our goal of delivering the best service in the world to customers who are victims of fraud, or have disputes with merchants. The team also helps customers who have been scammed into sending their money away via bank transfer. 

Monzo’s mission is to make money work for everyone, and this is especially important to us when our customers need help when they have suffered from Fraud or have merchant disputes. The Fraud and Dispute team sits separately from our Financial Crime department, so this means we also look after some non-fraud dispute areas. We often help to gather the appropriate evidence needed for successful disputes, especially in cases of card payment disputes. 

The Role Function

We’re looking for experienced Fraud Advisors to help us achieve our goal of delivering the best service in the world to customers who are victims of fraud.

Unfortunately, fraud is an unavoidable part of banking, and while Monzo is constantly working to prevent it, we can't eradicate it completely.

In the Fraud Advisor role, you'll be investigating claims of unauthorised transaction fraud and claims of compromised accounts. You'll help to determine whether or not we can help refund the money the customer has lost. You'll also gain a deeper understanding about how fraud regulation works in the UK and in other markets.

How we speak with our customers:

You will be taking calls from customers and there may be occasions where a customer is unable to access their app or send us an email, and calling them back will be the best way for us to give a customer the service they need. So you should be comfortable on the phone

You’ll be working remotely on an ‘open availability’ contract basis, to make sure we're always here to help and allow 24/7 customer support through our calls, social media platforms, email or in-app chat. That means your shift pattern will change on a weekly basis.

To make sure we have enough cover on weekends, you'll work some other weekend days and get days off in the same working week. All of our full time COps are guaranteed 1 full weekend off each month.
