In the UK, opportunities for treasury professionals have increased most markedly in the North East and North West of the country, with annual job volumes up by 25%. London treasury vacancies rose by around 12% in the same period.
The flow of quarterly treasury vacancies has expanded at a similar rate, with job numbers also up by around a tenth. “One very noticeable recent trend has been a revival in the flow of permanent vacancies back to levels seen over a year ago, even as the number of temporary and contract positions remains consistent,” says Stuart Ridley, manager of Treasury Recruitment at Robert Walters. “As competition for senior treasurers intensifies, make sure your organisation has a plan to manage the flow of talent and attract the professionals who will help meet business objectives.”
