School's back - let the job search begin!

You know the summer months are coming to an end when you start panicking about whether or not you have all the schoolbooks and school uniform ready for that first day in school!

September also marks the time of year a lot of professionals return from their summer holidays feeling fresh and revived and ready to start that job search. 

Whether it’s time to start something new, time to take that next step up in their career or time for that career change, September is the month to make it happen.

Historically we have always seen an increase in the number of professionals seeking new opportunities in the market during the month of September. For example in 2016 we saw a month on month increase of 10% from August 2016 to September 2016. With a further increase of 5% from September 2016 to October 2016

Based on the current market demands and Brexit enquiries from companies looking to move to Dublin, September is shaping up to be a very busy month! 

There is a constant demand for Risk and Compliance professionals which is being driven by EU legislation coming into effect including the implementation of the 4th EU AML Directive and let’s not forget about the deadline for GDPR, which is fast approaching. In the last 2 weeks we have seen a shift towards more senior roles coming through as companies look for Managerial level candidates with strong global exposure in people management, risk and compliance specifically within AML. 

Here’s a snapshot of some of the roles we are currently working on:

Compliance & Policy Manager | Dublin | €60,000 - €70,000

Compliance Manager | Dublin | €500 per day contract

Senior Risk Manager | Dublin | Senior level package

Investment Risk Associate Director | Dublin | Senior level package

So as you start thinking about ironing those school shirts and making the packed lunches, start thinking about what September holds for you and your career.
