Market Insights 2019 | Change & Transformation, London

Financial Services

Last year was challenging for the interim financial services change and transformation market, with clients implementing new restrictions on contract tenure and showing caution around non regulator-driven spending. As a result, we saw a significant amount of contractors flooding the market, and far fewer opportunities available for them to transition into. Clients became more and more specific around skill set requirements and less flexible with their expectations, due to the surge in available talent. This also meant we found ourselves dealing with longer processes and more interview stages than previous years.

The rise of GDPR related initiatives dominated Q1 last year, with clients desperately trying to be compliant for the May 25th deadline. Project/programme managers were in high demand, which was reflected in premium rates and increased levels of interest among contractors in these specialist roles. On average, GDPR change professionals were earning 15-20% more than professionals with similar experience working outside of GDPR programmes. It was also noticeable that many non-GDPR roles in Q1 2018 were short term − other projects and programmes seemingly took a back seat while programme teams focused on the GDPR deadline.

While it may be secondary to the impact it can have to a businesses’ bottom line, if office space can be forfeited or used more resourcefully, flexible working at face value seems a wholly positive initiative.
