Compliance – Compensation and Market Trends Report 2016

Our 2016 Mid-Year Report combines a review of the prevailing conditions in the compliance recruitment market with the results of a comprehensive compensation survey of compliance professionals registered with Barclay Simpson. The survey was undertaken in June 2016 prior to the EU referendum. The results of the survey together with our own experience allows us to report that whilst demand for compliance professionals was softening during the first half of 2016, it has responded more positively to the outcome of the vote than we may have anticipated.

  • Both the number of vacancies generated and the speed with which roles were being filled fell back in the first half of 2016.
  • Whilst average figures often reflect a wide range of individual experiences, the average salary increase for a compliance professional changing job is currently 19%, whilst the average salary increase for someone staying with their existing employer is 7%.
  • 28% of compliance professionals surveyed had changed employer in the last 12 months. Although this cannot be considered representative of all compliance professionals, it is down from the 35% figure reported a year ago
