Risk Management

Barclay Simpson has one of the most established risk recruitment teams with a proven track record across all functions of risk management.

Risk is one of the fastest growing areas of recruitment globally since the credit crisis in 2007/8. It is deeply embedded on the agenda of all Chief Executives: all financial services firms having a Chief Risk Officer on their board of directors. The combination of high levels of growth, development and importance on the agenda of regulators has meant that recruiting for risk remains a growing market. 

Our capability expands across all functions of Risk with dedicated consultants aligned to operational, market, credit, liquidity, cyber and quant risk. Our global risk recruitment team has 18 members split between New York, Europe, UAE and London.  Our consultants have a deep technical knowledge of their respective markets with considerable experience recruiting in their field. 

We operate on both a contract and permanent basis and across all sectors both inside and outside of traditional banking and finance companies. Our team places candidates from Analyst through to Managing Director and Global Heads of Department. 

If you are currently looking to recruit risk professionals and would like to discuss the options available, please contact Josh Lawson, UK Head of Risk at Barclay Simpson.

If you have an immediate requirement for risk staff please fill in our short enquiry form here and one of the team will arrange a time to take a brief.
