Compliance Market Report 2016

Our 2016 Market Report combines our review of the prevailing conditions in the compliance recruitment market with the results of our latest employer survey. We look to analyse and discuss the latest trends in the compliance recruitment market, a market which remains buoyant. However, regardless of the continuing pressure to recruit, the financial services industry is not simply looking to recruit additional compliance professionals. Companies now demand much more from their compliance functions and this is fully reflected in the calibre of people they look to recruit.

  • 68% of compliance managers do not believe their department is sufficiently resourced for the demands made on it. (Up from 55% last year)  
  • 79% of compliance managers report they have found it difficult to recruit. (Down from 81% last year)
  • 88% of compliance departments anticipate the need to recruit in 2016 with business growth and development a key driver.
  • Salary expectations are considered high but generally affordable.
