Building a career in treasury can be both exciting and nerve-wracking.

The great news is that while there are so many facets of treasury, there are basic principles that will give you a leg up. To give out handy pointers to anyone looking to build a career in treasury, Paul Hussey, Corporate Treasury at SABIC, joined this episode of The Treasury Career Corner.

Paul wasn’t always in treasury. He got his start in the banking industry working at the Central Bank of Ireland, Dublin. His first treasury role was at the Legal and General Group Treasury in London, and he’s transitioned through various roles all leading up to his current role at SABIC.

SABIC is a global leader in chemicals based in Saudi Arabia with its headquarters domiciled in Riyadh. With more than 33,000 employees spread across 50 countries, the organisation identifies and develops opportunities in key markets such as construction, energy and medical devices.

Still pushing towards innovation, SABIC has significant research resources and hubs in USA, Europe, North East Asia, South East Asia and the Middle East.
