Welcome to the Graff Search Salary Insights.

The market for Lawyers, Compliance professionals and Data Privacy specialists has been fruitful for the last 12-18 months, with high salary increases, multiple job options and fewer competitors (candidates) in recruitment processes – it has been a win-win for those looking at the job market. This has, of course, created challenges for companies hiring and put pressure on many things, cost and timing being the primary two.

Despite the market cooling this year, which it needed to do, the governance sectors of Legal, Compliance and Data Privacy are areas which seem relatively unaffected due to the detrimental effect on companies (share price and reputation, etc) when they either get it wrong, or are understaffed.

With this in mind, we thought it might be time to offer an updated and comprehensive guide on where the market is right now for various industry sectors across our specialist areas of legal, compliance and data privacy.

We hope you find the information useful!
