Senior Financial Crime Analyst at Monzo Bank

Senior Financial Crime Analyst (Requirements)

Monzo Bank  Birmingham, England, United Kingdom

About the job

We’re looking for a Senior Financial Crime Analyst to specifically support us with requirements and policy. We need someone who really understands Financial Crime framework requirements and regulations, and can then translate these into business requirements.

Joining our fast-growing Fincrime team, you’ll report directly to our Requirements Director and support on the requirements attached to implementing new systems or models.

You should know that we fight financial crime a little differently at Monzo. You’ll work in a team with dedicated financial crime engineers and data scientists, which helps us to spot, assess and prevent crime quickly. We choose not to split out different areas of crime, either. Instead, we tackle all financial crime together as one team. That includes AML, fraud, sanctions breaches, terrorist financing, bribery and corruption, and tax evasion.


The role
You’ll Be Responsible For

  • Building a close relationship with our fincrime operations teams, ensuring sufficient communication, knowledge sharing, and support
  • Liaising with product/platform owners to provide specific fincrime knowledge and understand business and functional requirements
  • Developing, updating, and iterating on policies and procedures
  • Collating key measures and metrics for reporting to relevant oversight committees
  • Proactively identifying and sharing emerging threats/trends
  • Identifying the highest priority issues or problem areas and working with other members of the Fincrime Team to drive forward solutions.

You should apply if:

    • You have significant experience working in financial crime
    • You have solid understanding of Financial Crime framework requirements and regulations
    • You are passionate about Monzo and putting customers first
    • You enjoy working efficiently in a fast-paced, high-volume environment and thrive when there’s ambiguity
    • You’re great at explaining processes to people and have flawless written English
    • You’re comfortable working with engineers and identifying operational requirements
    • You’re keen to get stuck in and make things happen, without waiting for someone else or always needing to delegate
    • You’re well-organized and can work to tight deadlines
    • You’re comfortable working with data and using it to come up with recommendations

Even Better

  • You have a track record of project management demonstrating your strong decision-making skills and ability to work to multiple deadlines simultaneously
  • You have experience working at a startup
  • You have financial crime and/or fraud prevention experience relevant to UK current account products


    • This role can be based in our London office or Remotely within the UK
    • This is a Level 3 role within our Financial Crime framework and offers a salary range of £51,000 – £72,000 DOE
    • The closing date for applications for this role is Midnight on Sunday 16th May
    • The application process consists of a 30 min phone call with a recruiter, an initial call with someone from the Fincrime team, followed by a practical written exercise and 2 x 45 minute video interviews. We promise not to ask you any brain teasers or trick questions.
    • We offer flexible working hours and trust you to work enough hours to do your job well, at times that suit you and your team.
    • Diversity and inclusion is a priority for us – if we want to solve problems for people around the world, our team has to represent our customers. So we need to attract the best talent and create an environment that supports and includes them. You can read more about diversity and inclusion on our blog.
    • If you prefer to work part-time, we’ll make this happen whenever we can – whether this is to help you meet other commitments or strike a great work-life balance.
