Written in partnership with Morgan McKinley, this report analyses the recruitment of corporate governance professionals in the UK’s banking industry. It provides a comparison of annual totals trends, an analysis of the most wanted specialist roles, a regional breakdown of recruitment, and the hiring activity of top firms.
1. Greater London registered almost 2,000 roles during 2022, representing a huge 68% share of total vacancies.
2. Nationwide Building Society has started 2023 with a bang, with over 40 (42) jobs registered in Q1 alone.
3. The biggest annual increase in 2022, however, was recorded by Banker/Fraud Risk/Compliance, an impressive 86.3% year-on-year rise.
The demand for Corporate Governance roles in London’s banking sector has notably increased in 2023, with a growing emphasis on expertise in emerging technologies such as data analytics, cybersecurity, and artificial intelligence. Additionally, there is a strong demand for professionals knowledgeable in environmental, social, and governance (ESG) matters, as well as a focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in hiring practices. However, the data reveals a potential decrease in corporate governance vacancies for England and Wales (E&W) compared to 2022, with London projected to experience a significant decline of 41.1% in job openings.
