The Financial Services Compliance industry finds itself at an interesting crossroads in relation to hiring in 2022. The U.S. unemployment rate has fallen to 5.2%, and Compliance functions find themselves grappling with a new regulatory landscape on top of the ongoing realities of COVID-19.

The Compliance and Financial Crimes market was not immune to the pressures that COVID-19 placed on hiring in 2020/21. However, hiring is now at an all-time high as the market continues to re-open. Pent-up demand after the brief slowdown in hiring during 2020/21 in addition to the growing number of market competitors for talent have all contributed to this. There is no lack of great opportunities for Compliance candidates across Investment Banking, FinTech, Consumer Banking, and Consulting. 

So, as hiring managers fight for talent and candidates look to forge the best career path ahead, we wanted to share the knowledge we have gathered, working with senior Compliance and Financial Crime Compliance professionals in our network who have provided some excellent insights.
