LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Complyport, a leading compliance consultancy located in the City of London, is offering a one-of-a-kind Graduate Training Programme (GTP) in risk and compliance, informed by their 20 years of experience servicing the financial services sector.
Skilled risk and compliance professionals are more needed than ever due to technological and industry evolutions, increased involvement from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and multiple recent high-profile organisations collapsing or being censured due to failures in compliance.
This area has been labelled “one of the fastest growing-areas of employment in the finance sector” by Prospects, and employees are compensated well for their expertise; Glassdoor lists the average compliance officer salary as over £35,000 per annum and for those holding the Senior Manager Function (SMF) 16/17 function holder the salary is at least double that. The FCA’s Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SM&CR) also means that every level of staff must understand and assume responsibility for a firm’s compliance – including junior and graduate staff.
Already in its second year of operation, Complyport’s 30-month programme addresses the lack of dedicated academic training available for those interested in pursuing a career in financial compliance. By joining the GTP, those who are seeking a career in compliance will gain:
- Education through an accredited master’s program
- Industry-leading professional qualifications
- Practical experience and mentoring from leading compliance professionals.
Alla Konnikov, Complyport’s Director of People Management, said:
“We have developed a market leading standard of knowledge, skills and behaviours expected in the compliance sector. Our training is unique as it combines academic, professional, and practical elements to ensure that from day one our graduates are engaged, challenged, and rewarded.
“With industry developments happening faster than ever – and amid increasingly volatile, variable global contexts – there is no better time to hone your skills with further professional development. Our courses are user-friendly and take financial services practitioners and their organisations to the next level by giving them the relevant skills and confidence to overcome industry challenges in efficient and sustainable ways.”
Successful applicants to the training programme will have access to a wide range of practical and theoretical learning tools provided by the London Governance & Compliance Academy (LGCA). The aim of the programme is to equip the graduates with the academic and professional knowledge and work experience to feel competent and prepared for a career in financial compliance.
Upon completing the GTP, graduates will be prepared to progress in consulting or as in-house compliance officers, or to pursue other opportunities as the programme content also accounts for the diverse range of advisory and transactional work in risk, governance, and compliance.
