Corporate Governance - Interim Market Report 2011

Download / view PDF 

Welcome to Barclay Simpson’s 2011 Corporate Governance Interim Market Report.

This is the 21st year we have produced market reports summarising and analysing recruitment trends in corporate governance. This report serves to review developments during 2011 and to provide an insight into how the recruitment market for corporate governance will develop for the remainder of the year.

Formally the recession has been over for two years. In more usual times the economy would be a place of rising confidence and investment as it embarked on a period of steady growth. It is clear we are far from there. The corporate governance recruitment market is currently operating in an environment of sub trend growth and squeezed living standards. Against this backdrop many parts of the corporate governance recruitment market appear surprisingly robust. Whilst the frenetic demand from the financial services sector has substantially subsided, overall levels of demand in the corporate governance recruitment market remain sufficient to provide full employment.

Perhaps it is best to view the corporate governance recruitment market through the prism of wider employment patterns. The UK economy has gained 375,000 jobs during the course of the last year. This is the result of 520,000 gains in the private sector and 145,000 losses in the public sector. We can confirm that for the small part of the recruitment market that we know and understand, the total number of corporate governance staff employed in the economy grew in the last twelve months. That is something for which we should be grateful.

For more in-depth coverage, comprehensive market reports exist for
Internal Audit, Compliance, RiskSecurity and Legal recruitment markets.
