GRC Professional : GRC Spring 2011
36 grc professional • Spring 2011 36 grc professional • Spring 2011 memBeRshiP ACI conducts an annual survey of members to keep them in touch with the latest trends for remuneration, education, and other factors relevant to their professional development and choices they may be considering for their career progression. The survey this year was open to members and guests of ACI for approximately two weeks prior to the close of the financial year and we had close to a 10% response rate. If isolated to just ACI members, participation was closer to 15%, which is an excellent response rate and allows us to make some reasonable assumptions from the data. The full results from the Salary Survey and the Benchmarking section will be available to members shortly, including cross-tabulated analysis, however some key areas of interesting data have been identified on our initial analysis. Years of experience Of particular interest to ACI in preparing our calendar of education and professional development opportunities is the number of members entering the profession and their pathway. Responses for number of years in the profession indicate a fairly well-spread membership range from two plus years of experience, with the highest response rate in the 6-10 year category (only being higher than its nearest category by 6%) giving a real sense of career longevity in compliance and related roles. Future career roles Supporting this interpretation was the data relating to future career options and preferences, which again indicated that participants were looking at staying in a compliance or related role. Whether they wanted to remain in their current organisation or were looking at outside opportunities, close to 70% were intending to remain working within this profession, although employers should be aware that 35% indicated they were looking to change employers within the next 12 months. type of role Over 70% of participants indicated that they had ‘compliance’ somewhere in their title, ranging from ‘Compliance Officer’ through to ‘Head of Compliance’ and a strong overlap was also indicated with ‘Risk’ also being selected in job titles either as a dedicated or dual compliance/risk role for 30% of responses. sectors represented The data on sector representation again mirrored the known data about ACI members which contradicts the urban ACi salary survey acI’s latest salary survey shows the extensive experience and education of compliance professionals across a wide range of industries.
