About us

We’re here to make money work for everyone and we're doing things differently. 

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.

What you'll be working on

We are looking for passionate Fraud Investigators to help support and protect our customers from fraud, and who love solving problems and keeping up-to-date with the latest fraud trends to join our fraud operations team, kickstart a career in fraud investigation, and help Monzo make money work for everyone.

In the Fraud team, you'll be investigating payment fraud claims made by our customers. You'll use your skills to work out what’s happened, support our customer and do your best to recover the money they have lost. As you gain experience you'll be able to take on more complex cases and grow your skills in different areas of fraud.

Your day to day

  • Using the full set of tools to build a timeline of a customer's fraud claim
  • Questioning our customers effectively and efficiently without influencing their answers, or making them feel interrogated
  • Making fair decisions based on your high quality investigation and in line with external regulations and internal policies, to deliver fair outcomes for our customers
  • Engaging with other banks and financial institutions about reports of fraudulent behaviour

Scott, a Fraud Investigator, tells you more:

'In my time at Monzo, there’s been no role as fulfilling as working as a Fraud Investigator. My day is super varied, as no two fraud claims are the same. I take a real sense of pride in being able to help our customers recover any money they’ve lost, and to also protect Monzo from people who may try to defraud us.

Even now, the lessons and best practices I picked up when I started the role have continued to influence my working day.When I lead any training groups, or buddying sessions, the one thing I impress on everyone is how important your decisioning-making skills will be in this role. 

Having the confidence to make a decision is integral to succeeding as a Fraud Investigator, and the training and tools available to all of us here quickly help build the confidence needed to sharpen your decision-making skills.

There’s still new things to learn, and that can be challenging at times, but the fraud community is always supportive and ready to help'.
