​With the digital assets sector growing at an impressive rate over the past few years, Rutherford has been increasingly specialising in placing strong regulatory professionals into disruptive crypto firms. The demand in the sector has been expanding massively, with businesses looking to ramp up their hiring efforts more specifically into the compliance and financial crime functions.

As stated in our Crypto and Digital Assets Salary Survey for 2022, regulatory frameworks for the digital assets industry keep on evolving at a rapid rate, meaning that firms - and professionals - are trying to keep pace across the board. We have seen in the past years, and more so after the COVID-19 pandemic, that digital assets companies are building their compliance, financial crime and risk functions from the ground up in order to meet the ever-evolving standards and regulations, trying to recruit talent notably from traditional financial services firms.

To better understand the different challenges professionals within the sector are facing - and to better assess the types of professionals our crypto clients would need in the near future from a hiring standpoint - Rutherford has decided to become a member of CryptoUK, the UK’s self-regulatory trade association representing the crypto industry. Being part of this association enables us to tangibly be part of the conversation on the future of the crypto and digital assets space, and to further our knowledge in the sector. This will also help us solidify our current position as the UK’s leading recruitment firm in the crypto and digital assets sector.

“We joined CryptoUK for the ability to share information and knowledge with experts in the digital assets sector. The regulation and industry standards within digital assets are changing rapidly, and we wanted to find a space where we could understand the challenges and trends that our clients are going through. We are very much looking forward to engaging with like-minded people in the space and learning more about this buoyant sector”
Jackson Baker, Director of the Crypto Specialism at Rutherford
