Risk Management – Mid Year Market Report 2012

Download / view PDF

A flat lining economy, Eurozone inspired uncertainty and deleveraging banks continued to hamper the risk management recruitment market during the first half of 2012. Fewer risk managers moved either internally or externally. We continue to believe that confidence will be restored by some form of closure on the Eurozone crisis. In the absence of this there was some evidence of an improvement in the number of vacancies and even the propensity of companies to recruit at the end of the first half of 2012.

  • New vacancies amongst our sample companies fell from an already depressed 76 in the second half of 2011 to 68 in the first half of 2012.  
  • The number of risk managers accepting new positions in the first half of 2012 was over 50% lower than the peak achieved in the second half of 2010.
  • The overall salary increase achieved by risk mangers changing jobs rose slightly from 5% in 2011 to 16% and remains close to its long term average.
