Risk Management Jobs In the Middle East

Barclay Simpson’s expertise in risk management recruitment covers operational, market, credit and liquidity risk. We have a successful track record recruiting for investment banks, commercial and retail banks, private banks, asset management companies and hedge funds, insurance companies, private equity firms and risk management consulting practices.

Demand for risk management staff is recovering from the effects of the first global economic contraction in over 50 years. Within the financial services industry risk management is central to the wider corporate governance agenda and it is likely there will be regulatory initiatives that will further promote the employment of risk managers. These will include tightening the rules around capital management, regulatory reporting and risk management.

Many risk departments are now leanly staffed which bodes well for future demand. We anticipate this will include demand for experience in risk reporting, exposure monitoring, risk control, modelling and recoveries.

Examples of the risk management roles we recruit for include: 

  • Chief Risk Officer
  • Head of Operational Risk 
  • Head of Credit Risk
  • Head of Market Risk 
  • Operational Risk Manager
  • Enterprise Risk Manager 
  • Market Risk Analyst
  • Credit Risk Manager 
  • Risk Reporting Officer
  • Business Risk Manager 
  • Corporate Credit Analyst
  • Portfolio Risk Analyst 
  • Head of Liquidity Risk
  • Liquidity Risk Manager
