Risk Management - Market Report 2012

Download / view PDF 

Eurozone inspired uncertainty slowed the risk management recruitment market during the second half of 2011 with fewer risk managers moving 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 risk recruitment market to better function and for employment levels amongst risk managers to be broadly maintained.

  • New vacancies amongst our sample companies fell from 130 in the first half of 2011 to 76 in the second half of 2011.
  • The number of risk managers accepting new positions in the second half of 2011 was 51% lower that the peak achieved in the second half of 2010.
  • Salary increases achieved by risk managers in the second half of 2011 fell back from 17% to 15%.
