The world has not been the same since COVID first struck in 2020. Back then, many treasurers were adapting to remote work and acclimatising to the challenges of being out of the office.
Now, many professionals have returned to the office, either completely or as part of a hybrid working pattern.
In this episode of The Treasury Career Corner, we welcome back Bruce Edlund, now Group Director, Assistant Treasurer at Cloud Software Group.
Bruce joined the show back in June 2020, whilst working at Citrix. He explained why he returned to the company, shared his thoughts on technology in treasury and provided tips for young treasurers.
Now, Bruce returns with career updates and explains why he thinks hybrid work is here to stay.
