£200K Compliance Jobs Boosted by Russia Sanctions


New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/02/2022 -- While the war in Ukraine - and subsequent sanctions on Russia - have created a challenging environment for many in the financial services industry, not every role is negatively impacted. In fact, there are some - in the compliance sphere - that are enjoying a resurgence as a result. Sanctions specialist is probably one of the most in-demand legal compliance jobs today as a result of the war in Ukraine. Sanctions are not new but the effect of the round currently being applied to Russia means that there is unprecedented pressure on compliance teams. This is not just with respect to reviewing what the impact of sanctions is likely to be but also when it comes to ensuring that policies, procedures, systems, controls and guidance all reflect the current situation. This has been exacerbated by the way that sanctions have been introduced on a gradual basis, requiring many institutions to be in a constant state of updating and reviewing.
