New York - 25 September 2006

Financial institutions, asset managers, consulting firms and global corporations have a new tool at their disposal for finding risk management talent. GlobalRiskJobs and its international affiliate sites went online today with high profile job postings in risk management and regulatory compliance from around the world. As the only job board dedicated to these fields, GlobalRiskJobs delivers a better solution for sourcing this highly sought and specialized talent than the more general, conventional job boards currently employed in the financial services.

"There is tremendous pressure within organizations to build risk management and compliance teams," says Natasha Tkachenko, Head of Research, GlobalRiskJobs. "Reports from SAS, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Accenture, and other firms all acknowledge the urgency surrounding risk management and, more importantly, the challenges involved with finding the right people. Through job creation and normal attrition within 120,000 risk and compliance jobs, we estimate there are 25,000 open positions globally on an annual basis. ”

GlobalRiskJobs offers financial firms and recruiters direct exposure to a carefully cultivated database of over 30,000 risk and compliance professionals, something which GlobalRiskJobs knows no other conventional job boards can match. In addition, GlobalRiskJobs offers risk and compliance professionals a single source for jobs, risk industry news and other industry information. "This is what makes us unique and of immeasurable value to recruiters and risk professionals," continues Tkachenko. "There are no barriers here to finding skilled people in market, credit, and operational risk, as well as risk technology and financial compliance."

Through GlobalRiskJobs, hiring firms have numerous options to profile open positions in a manner and language that risk and compliance professionals understand. To speed up the hiring process, GlobalRiskJobs also offers enhanced job search features such as targeted e-mail campaigns, and premium job and logo placements.

For job seekers, GlobalRiskJobs offers the ability to filter through positions using specific criteria and drill-down options such as industry sector and risk type (for instance; Capital Markets/ Large Investment bank / Credit Risk / Quantitative), as well as traditional criteria such as geography and job type. Access to news and industry resources makes the site attractive to risk managers regardless of whether they are passive or active job seekers.
