Compliance - Market Report 2012

Download / view PDF 

After the unprecedented levels of demand experienced by the compliance recruitment market, Eurozone inspired uncertainly slowed the compliance recruitment market during the second half of 2011. Fewer compliance specialists moved either internally or externally. This is likely to persist into the early months of 2012. Even when vacancies are being registered and interviews called, in many areas of financial services there is not the confidence to recruit. We believe that confidence would be restored by some form of closure on the Eurozone debt crisis. It would certainly allow the compliance recruitment market to function better and if not for employment levels to increase, at least to be maintained.

  • New vacancies amongst our sample companies fell from 167 in the first half of 2011 to 109 in the second half of 2011.
  • The number of compliance specialists accepting new positions in the second half of 2011 was 61% lower than the peak achieved in the second half of 2010.
  • Salary increases achieved by compliance specialists in the second half of 2011 fell back from 22% to 14%.
