Tara Mansfield is the Head of People at Monzo Bank. She’s been at Monzo for just over three years, following career stints spanning the fields of education, finance and social services. Named one of the top 15 most influential women in HR by Perkbox in 2019, Tara has pioneered a modern approach to mental health at Monzo, making sure that mental health awareness is a key focus of day to day life, rather than being the focus one week a year. A passionate Mental Health First Aid instructor, Tara is committed to reducing the stigma and the ignorance around mental health by giving people real information and tools to help themselves and others in the workplace. Having experienced first-hand how damaging this ignorance and apathy towards mental health can be, she is committed to creating and driving mental health positive work environments. She joined Monzo with a vision to put employee experience at the core of everything the People team do, in order to support the high performing team at Monzo.
