Anyone here works in compliance? It is hard to get into? How did you get into it? Direct route or through a recruitment agency?
If you’re talking about a good graduate scheme in Compliance, it is pretty much as difficult as any other. I will say that compliance is becoming more popular as of late (due to continuing changes in the market/ long term remuneration opportunities/ better hours), but truthfully all the grad schemes are competitive. Probably just easier to directly apply rather than go through an agency. If you are an experienced hire, some agencies can be good in identifying opportunities, but make sure you have a good idea of what you want and you communicate it clearly to them.
Good luck. Hope this helps!
