Moments with Monzo

2 min read, by Claire Barrance

This is my first Moments podcast since joining Mo as Community Lead back in the summer, and I am delighted that it was such a fun, lively and informative chat with someone we have been hoping to have on for a while now.

In this episode we share a moment with Tara, Head of People at Monzo – currently the UK’s fastest growing bank – they are providing a modern alternative to consumer finance and are all about solving problems with the mission of making money work for everyone.

Tara heads up the People Collective at Monzo and has been part of the company’s amazing journey, as they’ve grown from just 50 people to nearly 1,500 people in just 3 years! 

"Make sure everyone belongs before they arrive"

‘Think big, start small’

It’s clearly been an amazing ride and we loved hearing all about it from a people perspective – Tara shared how the company culture has developed over time, the innovative ways to drive/maintain employee engagement and working relationships in a rapidly growing organisation, and the huge importance of a focus on employees health and well-being. 

We really enjoyed our chat with Tara, learning about the challenges and successes of working within a modern, fast scaling organisation like Monzo and picking up some tips along the way!
