Executive Search

Permanent compliance positions

Compliance People advises on, recruits and selects for compliance, risk and regulatory professionals with backgrounds in both national and international business and for service providers and the public-private sector. Because compliance positions are often filled by lawyers, for 25 years Legal People has been asked to assist and advise on responsible and logical filling of compliance positions, both at supervisory and executive level, and compliance people has become an integral part of Legal People. That is why since 2015 we advise using the Compliance People label. In the performance of a search and selection instruction for a compliance professional, Compliance People employs its tried and trusted search method, which comprises the following three tools:

  • first, we search our extensive database for suitable candidates, whom we then approach;
  • we also start an executive search, approaching potential candidates;
  • third, we communicate the vacancy in relevant media, social media and on our own website.

This search method yields a 100% success rate. Over the past few years, Compliance People has successfully recruited compliance and regulatory professionals for highly diverse clients, including Ballast Nedam, Friesland Campina, Triodos bank, Heerema, Mizuho, PGGM, SHV and OCI.

Because we constantly work on optimizing our services we have developed an assessment specifically for Compliance Professionals in cooperation with het Hoofdkantoor: the PACT measurement.
