Mobile Banking Firm, Monzo, to Create 300 New Jobs in Cardiff

The UK’s fastest growing, mobile only bank is opening in Cardiff following support from the Welsh Government

The forward-thinking banking app, Monzo, has fantastic features including enabling customers to manage their money via the bank’s bill splitting functionality, spend abroad without incurring and fees or charges and to block their card instantly if the need arises.

Last summer Monzo added to its products and services with the successful launch of a full current account and a Mastercard Debit card.

The firms rapid growth and success has built its customer base to 1.3 million, and with more 100,000 new users signing up each month, this figure is set to soar even higher.

As a result of its growing success, Monzo is now looking to expand and following £950,000 of Welsh Government support, the bank will be opening a new  customer operations centre in Cardiff that will create 312 new jobs over the next four years.

This is in addition to the Monzo’s existing headquarters in London which employs more than 500 people.

Economy Minister Ken Skates said:

“Our Economic Action Plan is clear on our commitment to supercharging the industries of the future and supporting businesses to innovate and compete in a rapidly evolving market place.

“Monzo’s innovative business model, its ground breaking functionality and rapid growth has seen it quickly evolve into one of the world’s leading digital banks and as a Welsh Government we are proud to have supported its expansion into Wales.

“I look forward to Monzo joining our thriving Financial and Professional Services Sector here in Cardiff and in doing so creating  312 high quality customer service jobs right in the heart of our capital.”
