“With the UK’s recovery from the recession looking increasingly assured, employers are looking to expand teams to support their growing business, with risk management an integral part of their planning.
“Increased pressure from regulators has seen demand for risk professionals grow throughout this year, with demand particularly high in London and the surrounding areas.
“We have seen an increase in hiring across all areas of risk, but significant increased volumes in operational risk within asset management firms, market and credit risk methodology, model governance and model audit roles. specialists with experience in stress testing, Volker, FRTB and FDSF are also in high demand.
