If you're a financial crime compliance specialist working for a consultancy, now could be the right time to move to an in-house role.
With salary increases of up to 20% as well as a clear path to career progression, the move to an in-house financial crime compliance role presents exciting opportunities for professionals ready to take the next step in their career.
Over the past 12 months we have seen banks looking for financial crime compliance specialists with a background working for a consultancy.
“Professionals in consultancies who specialise in due diligence or business intelligence can expect a salary increase of up to 20% in their base salary when they make the move in-house, as well as gaining the opportunity to develop their skills and experience with leading financial firms,” said Lewis Roman, Senior Consultant for financial crime compliance recruitment at Robert Walters.
For those keen to make a move to an in-house financial crime compliance role, there are several aspects of your experience that you need to highlight in your CV to help ensure your skills and experience match your potential employer's needs.
While experience in a consultancy is valuable in itself, tailoring your CV and focusing on gaining particular experience can help you stand out from the competition when applying for an in-house role.
While there is no guaranteed strategy for securing an in-house role, by taking a proactive approach to developing additional high value skills and experience, you can place yourself in the strongest position to stand out from competitors.
