• 11% uplift in year-on-year volume of treasury roles posted to key job boards
• Increase mirrors rise in quarterly advertised treasury job numbers
Year-on-year volumes of advertised treasury vacancies have climbed by around 10%, a reflection of positive hiring sentiment and shortages of experienced treasury professionals.
The numbers are drawn from the European Jobs Index, a research tool created by specialist recruiter Robert Walters that tracks vacancy levels advertised across industry-leading job boards.
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.
Stuart Ridley, Manager of Treasury Recruitment at Robert Walters, says:
“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.
“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.”
