These Are the Jobs You’ll Always be Able to Stroll into This Year

While there might not be as much hiring this year as there was last year, there will be pockets of intense hiring. They are in the middle office. Recruiters tell us that these pockets include:

1) Anti-Money Laundering Jobs

“We are exceptionally busy,” says Edward Manson, a senior consultant focused on compliance at the PSD Group. “In particular, we have got lots of roles focused on anti-money laundering and financial crime.”

Andrew Hanson, director of financial services at Robert Walters, confirms that AML is abnormally hot. So too, he says, are jobs in compliance monitoring and advisory and product surveillance.

Most people who go into anti-money laundering have some form of legal background according to Manson.

2) Regulatory Roles

Demand for regulatory capital expertise has suddenly taken off. Hanson says candidates will be able to walk into jobs if they have relevant experience in regulatory reporting (operations) and internal capital adequacy assessment (ICAAP).

3) Operational Risk Management

“The continuing stream of new risk and control regulations means that operational risk candidates will be highly sought after,” declares Hanson.

4) OTC Derivatives, Algorithmic Trading (Technology Roles)

“There’s big push to industrialize the OTC trade process,” says Jonathan Nicholson, managing director at recruiters Astbury Marsden. “There’s also big demand for technology development talent in algo trading. People who can build high volume low latency trading technologies are in big demand.”

5) Anything to Do with Change and Transformation

Glorified project managers, change and transformation staff were hot last year and are still hot this year.

“There’s big demand for change, transformation and projects staff,” says Jonathan Nicholson, managing director at Astbury Marsden. “It’s all about driving efficiency in middle and back office processes and functions. Banks are looking to find efficiencies globally, rather than running local fiefdoms. They need change people who understand global operating platforms and the challenges of integration.”

6) All Operations Roles Appropriate to Second Jobs

Sally Martin, associate director of investment banking and investment management operations at Robert Walters, says there’s a particular candidate shortage among second jobbers for operations roles. “Firms often didn’t ramp up their graduate recruitment a few years ago, and now there’s a particular shortage of people at this level across the market,” she explains.
