Risk Management – Compensation and Market Trends Report 2015

Our 2015 Mid-Year Report combines a review of the prevailing conditions in the risk management recruitment market with the results of a comprehensive compensation survey covering both permanent and contract risk managers. The results of the survey together with our own experience allows us to report that the demand for risk managers has stabilised albeit at a high level. Risk managers are reporting increased levels of satisfaction with their remuneration.
  • 57% of risk managers expressed satisfaction with their current remuneration. It represents a steady increase across the last two years and is up from 51% in 2013. 
  • Whilst averages are made up of a wide range of individual experiences, the average salary increase for a risk manager changing job is currently 19%, whilst the average increase for those staying with their existing employer is 7%. 
  • 28% of risk managers surveyed had changed employer in the last 12 months. This cannot be considered representative of all risk managers, but is up from 25% reported a year ago.
