Audit, Compliance & Risk

With increased corporate scrutiny, governance initiatives and regulation, the compliance sector has become a dominant theme across Financial Services. There is intense competition amongst banks, insurers and investment managers to secure talent in this area as a result.


Particularly sought-after, are personnel with the ability to operate effectively amidst a shifting landscape in audit, compliance and risk functions. At Hanover Search Group we have accrued vast experience in senior executive search projects across these changing corporate governance structures.


Our team possesses a wealth of market knowledge and reach, and we have proven versatility in executing searches for Group Chief Auditors, CCOs as well as sourcing technical experts throughout the Compliance, Conduct Risk and Fraud and AML areas.
