Nixon was a consultant at Hunter Campbell, focusing on compliance, and will perform the same role at her new firm. Scott Wilson, a director of IMS, acknowledged that the recruitment market had been affected by the economic downturn, but said there was still plenty of demand for compliance officers.

&quotSome of this is a result of regulatory changes being introduced by the Financial Services Authority,&quot he said. &quotIn some areas firms are having to tighten up procedures.&quot

IMS' services include project management and advice on compliance matters, much of it for asset management and venture capital firms.
