Risk, compliance professionals in high demand

Manpower Group’s 2019 Net Employment Outlook reported financial advice firms weren’t necessarily looking to expand their businesses right now, but wealth management job recruiter, SUPER Recruiter, has said risk and compliance officers are still in high demand.

SUPER Recruiters’ executive director, Sally Humphris, said the firm was experiencing the greatest demand from businesses seeking to acquire talented and experienced individuals in risk, compliance and governance functions, as well as data security.

“We can’t get enough professionals and are actively seeking well-experienced, proven people,” she said.

Humphris said the consequences of the Banking Royal Commission, combined with economic pressures and changing consumer preferences, meant that wealth managers required better risk and compliance insights.
