Employee Relations Advisor
📍Remote, London or Cardiff | 💰 £33000 - £45000 + Benefits
We’re here to make money work for everyone and we're doing things differently. For too long, banking has been obtuse, complex and opaque. 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.
About our People Team:
The Employee Relations Advisor (referred to as People Advisor internally), works in partnership with others in the People collective to create positive working relationships between Monzo and its people. They support managers to ensure they are skilled to manage various employee relations (ER) issues in their teams, in line with Monzo’s People Policies, applying consistency and fairness throughout.
