Corporate Governance and Brexit

Barclay Simpson and Vacancysoft

March 2017

  • While the overall level of Corporate Governance vacancies is lower, the number of Compliance vacancies in the twelve months ended 31 January 2017 was 5.6% higher than it was in the previous 12-month period.
  • There were 60% more Corporate Governance vacancies in challenger banks between February 2016 and January 2017 than the previous 12-month period; established retail banks saw a 25% fall in vacancies.
  • Although there was a fall in demand for in-house lawyers, Brexit itself will almost certainly increase the demand for lawyers as contracts are re-negotiated and new legislation needs to be considered.

In the March edition of the series of reports Vacancysoft and Barclay Simpson co-produce we examine the impact which the Brexit referendum has had on the levels of Corporate Governance vacancies in England and Wales. The report contains data from a 24-month period, thus enabling comparisons to be made between hiring before and after the referendum. The results might not be quite as you expected them to be. But which areas beat the overall market trend? Is the market more interested in Risk Management or Compliance staff? Is growth in vacancies to be found at more junior or more senior levels? What hiring plans do Corporate Governance decision-makers have for 2017? The answers to all of those questions and more are in this month’s report, so download your copy now.
