Monzo’s mission is to make money work for everyone and it’s important that we understand and consider the needs of all our customers, especially those in different or difficult circumstances.
As we grow, we are seeing increasing queries from customers about how their circumstances are impacting their finances. These queries are often sensitive in nature, requiring our customer service team to have a deep level of knowledge on our products, potential vulnerabilities and regulatory expectations.
