GQR Logo

GQR Global Markets is an award-winning international Banking & Finance, Commodities & Energy and Information Technology search specialist.

With offices on both sides of the Atlantic, we continue to grow as a business in all areas including our global Risk Management team.

In addition to leading one of GQR’s market leading search teams, Emily Slocum (GQR’s Head of Middle Office Recruiting for the Americas) also sits on the New York Chapter Steering Committee for PRMIA (the Professional Risk Managers’ International Association) and is often found presenting to party members and CROs about the trends across Risk Management in the US. Speaking about the Association, Emily says: “It is such a valuable association to be a member of and where some of the leading luminaries in the Risk space can come together and share ideas not just on the hiring trends but also on how the Risk family is adapting to the constantly changing regulations.”

Emily is hosting an event in New York which is open to those working in the industry on the 17th September to discuss strategies behind both the job hunting and the hiring trends across the United States. If you would like to attend please get in touch with Emily for more details on Emily@gqrgm.com.

Our Risk team specialises across Model Risk Management, Credit Risk, Market Risk, Operational Risk, Regulatory Risk and Liquidity Risk across the finance industry. This includes investment banking, retail/consumer banking, insurance, exchanges and clearing houses across the Americas and Europe.

Discussing the current market trends across EMEA, Jamie Brimage, Head of the European Risk search team states: “With the increased number of opportunities available there has been a return of a candidate driven market where not only are they receiving multiple offers from prospective employers but also counter offers from their existing employers. This has led to an incredibly competitive market out there for the leading talent.” Should you wish to discuss the market conditions and trends further, please get in touch with Jamie on jxb@gqrgm.com.
