Increasingly strategic and essential

Treasury is an extremely rewarding, exciting and varied career, shaping the risk management and financial strategy for an organisation.

Securing funding from a wide variety of different sources, setting up cash management structures, managing FX exposures, mitigating interest rate risk & counterparty risk, implementing systems and working with banks, advisers and rating agencies are some of the many facets of a treasury career. Different industries also present diverse challenges, and I have been fortunate to be able to apply my core treasury skills across industries such as chemicals, oil & gas, consultancy, media, education and gaming.

Increasingly strategic and essential in all finance departments

Just as with the Global Financial Crisis of 2007-2008, the difficulties faced by many companies during the COVID-19 pandemic have again highlighted the value of having specialist in-house treasury expertise. Treasury departments have been busier than ever, with treasury specialists being required to utilise their cash management, forecasting and debt management experience to ensure the financial stability of their businesses. The increased profile of treasury will almost certainly result in greater investment in treasury expertise as we progress out of the pandemic.

As a dedicated treasury recruiter, Harvey John is able to advise and assist businesses of all shapes and sizes with recruiting the treasury expertise they require. Whether this be a growing SME looking to recruit its first treasury specialist, or a global multinational corporation or bank lacking a particular skill set within their existing treasury team.

Increased automation and reliance on systems, and continued regulatory changes will lead to opportunities for candidates with experience in these areas; but we are likely to see a growing number of opportunities for all treasury professionals, and at all levels of seniority.
