Group Treasurer Recruitment: A Specialized Approach to Finding Top Talent

Recruiting for a treasury specialist is different from recruiting for a Group Treasurer. Technical skills and knowledge are considered a given at this level, personality becomes a more important factor, and stronger connections to business leaders are expected. Mass recruiters are not used anymore, companies are less likely to do the search themselves, and senior executive firms and niche firms like ours are used to find the candidate.

Why finding your next Top Treasury Executive requires a specialised approach

Finding a new Treasury Professional may seem straightforward, but when it comes to group treasurers, a whole new level of expertise is required. At Treasurer Search, we understand the nuances of these critical roles and the specialised approach required to attract top talent. Pieter found his first Group Treasurer of a listed firm before 2000, a first in a string of many that is still being extended.

The Importance of Soft Skills

While technical skills and financial knowledge are essential, they only paint part of the picture for a Group Treasurer. Even more than for junior and medior treasurers. At this senior level, soft skills become paramount. The ideal candidate will possess:

  • Strategic thinking: The ability to align treasury functions with overall business objectives.
  • Strong communication skills: Collaborate effectively and communicate complex financial concepts to diverse stakeholders.
  • Leadership: Inspiring and guiding a team to achieve key financial goals.
  • Business acumen: Understanding the broader business environment and its impact on financial strategy.
  • Relationship building: Fostering strong relationships with internal and external partners.

Tailored Recruitment Strategies

Finding a Group Treasurer demands a far more targeted approach than relying on bulk recruitment methods. These senior positions are rarely filled, and companies often lack the internal expertise to conduct a thorough search. This is where specialized executive search firms like Treasurer Search come in. Identifying & screening candidates, approaching them, and guiding the process are handled more thoroughly and discretely than with junior positions.
