I’m looking for a Legal, Risk or Compliance job…

If you’re looking for a new job, visit the Legal, Risk & Compliance jobs page to see the opportunities that are currently available.

If you hire through a recruitment agency, you will have to pay a set amount for the service - this typically equals a pre-agreed percentage of the hire’s first year salary (but isn’t deducted from their pay). If you choose to work with Morgan McKinley, you will not have to pay any fees until the person starts working for your business. If you’re looking to hire now, get in touch so we can scope the role in more detail and agree on terms.

Our Legal, Risk & Compliance recruitment consultants all have experience of hiring people into specialist roles. View the team to find out who would be the most suitable to help you.

Hiring a Chief Risk Officer (CRO) will mature your risk management and ensure it adds clear value to the business. It’s important that you truly understand the role and what it needs to bring to your organisation, as well as a clear idea of the key technical and behavioural skills the chosen person should have. When hiring a CRO, you should partner with an executive search recruiter to find someone who matches your business goals. They will get an understanding of what you need and will then reach out to the appropriate people within their extensive network in the Risk Management area who match your requirements.

Knowing what employees want from an employer, value in their careers and like to experience from a recruitment process will help companies adjust their offerings so as to be more attractive. In these times, partnering with a recruitment agency shouldn’t be underestimated - they speak to multiple job seekers on a daily basis so they know exactly what candidates are looking for when applying to new jobs.

Our specialist Legal, Risk or Compliance recruitment consultants each have access to a strong network of highly-skilled professionals via our global database of 1.5 million active and passive job seekers, and many more via LinkedIn recruiter licences. With a deep understanding of their niche markets, our recruitment consultants will be able to advise you on the type of person that will match exactly what you are looking for.

Salaries across these three areas of expertise can vary significantly. Overall, the average Compliance salary in Australia is $88,000 and the average Risk salary in Australia is $100,000.
