Demand for governance and risk management skills on the rise

Heightened by the Hayne royal commission findings, the demand for skills and qualifications in risk, governance and compliance is increasing, as reported by The Australian Financial Review.

Governance, risk and compliance roles require a particularly specific skill set that varies from industry to industry. This makes it challenging for recruiters to hire the right people and there is pressure on all organisations to ensure they are developing organisational risk management capabilities internally. 

As reported in PWC’s Industry Skills Forecast, the demand for risk management skills, in particular, is continuing and in the last year, risk and compliance job listings have gone up almost 50 per cent.

For example, banking and associated industries are looking for more workers across operational risk and conduct risk, anti-money laundering and financial crime operations, and regulatory compliance roles.

These trends have also created a demand for more governance and risk management training.
