Bright Opportunities for Compliance Experts

(PresseBox) (Herford (Germany), ) b-fast GmbH, part of the b-next group of companies, sees strong growth in demand from banks for services related to MiFID projects. "We are one of the few companies who are able to offer the services throughout Europe of project consultants with significant experience in the areas of best execution, conflicts of interest and suitability management. To meet this growing demand, we are looking to add capacity to our compliance consulting team, particularly for the key banking centers of Frankfurt and London,” explained Ralf Mikeska, who as Deputy Managing Director of b-fast holds responsibility for expanding the compliance team.

The company is particularly looking for compliance professionals who bring both knowledge of European regulatory requirements and a solid understanding of IT. "The current turmoil within the financial industry will continue to increase the importance of the compliance function. Many of these themes are also gaining more and more attention from business units within banks. We can thus ensure our new staff members a career in a growing industry with a strong future," says Mikeska confidently. Despite the tight situation in the compliance job market, he adds that b-fast is not too worried, as its mother company b-next with its flagship MACOC:Suite is a recognized European market leader in compliance software. "And that is always an attraction for people who want career opportunities."
