The Treasury Recruitment Company at EuroFinance 2022 latest

International Treasury Conference, EuroFinance, Vienna 2022

Mike & Katie recently attended the EuroFinance Conference in Vienna, the video that accompanies this video shows what a great conference it was!

If you want some of the key takeaways from the conference, then READ ON…

Eurofinance, Vienna was great conference as the team got to meet both clients and candidates face to face for the first time in 3 years!

We kept being asked ‘we desperately need people can you help us?’

I explained ‘that's exactly why we're here!

We were giving people advice about how they need to change their recruitment processes. They need to be flexible.

We spoke to the Austrian Treasury Association at the beginning of the conference. It was a great session, but we were saying, working remotely / working from home and flexible working are here to stay!

You've got to embrace it. If you don't, you won't find the right people.

They're also looking at using LinkedIn.

‘Then asking, why can't we find those people? I said it’s because you're looking at people that are looking for a job.

As a company we speak to treasury professionals who aren’t actively seeking a new role instead they are open to their next career enhancing move through us!

We met a massive range of candidates and clients talked to them about their lives and what is next in them for their careers and who they wanted to recruit next for their team.

The other major topic at Eurofinance was salaries.

People have been asking where should they move to?
How are treasury salaries stacking up well?

The fact is they're stacking up well.

In the UK there is upwards pressure. The cost of living is increasing as it is across Europe.

However, in Europe, salaries are rising rapidly.

Say you have a temperature chart in the UK.
It's very warm, a little bit red.
You go into Europe, it’s red hot.

In the US, it's 'WHITE-HOT' where we are recruiting a series of positions, we are getting lots of roles coming through!

We also have our newest recruiter starting with us in the USA next week, more news to follow!

I have been seeing 20 to 40% pay increases and wide differences according to locations in basic salaries throughout the USA for the same job.

9 months ago, I might have been recruiting;

- a USA based Treasury Analyst role for $95,000 and
- say $120,000 Senior Treasury Analyst

You can add $10,000 to $15,000 for each role now.

So, in 2022;

- a USA based Treasury Analyst role for $105,000 to $110,000 and
- say $130,000 to $135,000 Senior Treasury Analyst

It was interesting to talk to lots of delegates about how their salaries are stacking up, several of them have sent us their CVs / resumes since the conference.

The final conference take away was that there is a real lack of understanding from many of the clients and candidates when they've asked us, where do you operate?

The answer is as I previously mentioned, EVERYWHERE!

We have the lovely Craig and Sophie heading up the UK desk and they are covering all levels right the way through from Treasury Analyst to Group Treasurer.

Then in Europe, the amazing Katie also covering roles at all levels too.

Moving on to the USA, there’s myself, Holly, and our newest recruit – announcement next week!


I also got asked “how long have you been doing this?”

We do have rival recruiters; however, they don't really invest in treasury.

For them Treasury is one of the things they do.

For us it’s the only thing we do!

That’s our SUPERPOWER!

Treasury recruitment is our business and we've done it for 20 as of the beginning of October 2022.

I also spoke about how I love talking to treasurers on my weekly podcast www.treasurycareercorner.com

It’s been going for 4 years, I thought I would do it for 10 episodes.

We're now over 240 episodes and 90,000+ downloads, I keep talking to some incredible treasury professionals out there.

Let me know if you want to be my next guest on the podcast.

Next year’s conference is going to be in Barcelona. We'll do a great stand like this again; it was an amazing conference, and we can't wait to see you again soon.

Highlights of the 2022 Global Treasury Salary Survey

We released the latest set of results of our Global Treasury Salary Survey at the end of 2021.

Recent improvements include;
- a review of current market sentiment in terms of the rise of hybrid working i.e., what employers are expecting versus what employees are telling us they would prefer in terms of work-life balance
- further sub-division of the categories of Treasury Consultant & Senior Treasury Consultant and Group Treasurer & Global Treasurer / Treasury Director providing greater insight into the difference in terms of responsibility and relative scale of the positions
- details of the conversion factors used within the survey itself

Building Longevity in Treasury with Rando Bruns

Where do you see your career in the next five years?

This is a question that many have a rehearsed answer to in their heads. Some have even learned to answer quite creatively. But when it comes down to the nitty-gritty and the ever-changing landscape of treasury, the path towards career longevity can be a bumpy one.

In this episode of the Treasury Career Corner, Rando Bruns, the Group Treasurer at Merck KGaA, shares some of the principles he’s stuck to that have contributed to his impressive treasury career. He gives some background on his time at Merck and how he learned to think long-term and hone in on core processes that have contributed to their organisational longevity.

Founded in 1668 in Darmstadt, Germany, Merck is the world's oldest pharmaceutical and chemical company. As a vibrant science and technology company, they believe in science as a force for good, and they aim to make a positive difference in millions of people’s lives every day.
Merck's passion for science and technology is what drives its 58,000 employees in 66 countries to find solutions to some of today’s toughest challenges and create more sustainable ways to live.

On the podcast we discussed…
● What inspired Rando’s move from banking to treasury
● How Rando’s banking experience fed into his treasury role
● The difference between the 90s and modern-day treasury
● The benefit of more global and diverse roles
● Why Rando has worked with Merck for 17 years
● What Rando looks for in new hires

Wolfgang Ratheiser the VP, Treasury & Corp Fin at PORSCHE shared with me “His definition of success”

Wolfgang Ratheiser the VP of Treasury & Corporate Finance at PORSCHE shared with me “What was his definition of success?”

He explained that;
“Everybody has to define it by themselves and find a way which should really drive and make him, you know work hard. And you need to enjoy what you're doing.

You need to enjoy resolving problems or challenges and having intellectual discussions. That's what I do and talking about things which you need to find new solutions.

And what makes it successful is that you are open enough when doors are opening that you take this door and you go through it. And that sometimes you are getting out of your comfort zone, but that's how you learn.

Sometimes its really important that you get out of your comfort zone.

The younger you are, the more experience you should try to gain because eventually that makes you more competitive and that's where the difference is and differentiates yourself to others too.”

Would You Like To Be a Guest on The Treasury Career Corner podcast?

Hello, I'm Mike Richards and I host The Treasury Career Corner podcast.
I've recorded today's video as I wanted to get some of you amazing Treasury professionals to be more guests on the show, if you like. Between the amazing Carly and I, we try and book as many guests as we can. But we struggle sometimes because you guys don't know what's involved in the podcast.

So what I wanted to do, I thought I'd embrace the power of video on LinkedIn for a moment and try to explain a little bit more about what we talk about on the show and what's involved, and hopefully some of you lovely Treasury folk will volunteer yourselves to be guests on the show.
Now for anyone that doesn't know. It's a weekly podcast where on each
and every show I talk about you as Treasury professionals and your careers for about 1/2 an hour to 40 minutes. We talk about where you started in your career, where you are now, and where you see both yourself and the treasury profession going to next.

It's great. It's an audio only podcast, as you can see I’ve got a face for radio, enough of that!.

Anyway, I've been talking to Treasurers and Treasury professionals for over 25 years as a Treasury Recruiter. And I've loved talking about your career journeys. So I thought, do you know, we will bring it to life on this amazing podcast medium and we've been going now for nearly three years. It's amazing really. We've talked all the way through about all of your treasury career journeys.

We've talked about how technology has come to bear in treasury.
We've talked about areas you are passionate about and some of the areas that you hate talking about, as well. We go through those
as well, and we talk about any areas you want to that have a private passion for you. You know, say it's about people development or its technology or the different ways that treasury is growing as a profession.
So we do it for about 1/2 hour as I say and then at the end of each and every show, you share your top tips with other Treasury professionals,
you guys are amazing and sharing great stories to say. And also help people in their treasury careers.

Couple of other bits to add. It's NOT live.

It's never live, we record the show so if there are ever any errors,
mistakes, we go back over them at the time. We also then send you a recording of the show. We can change it, make any edits you want.
So only once you are 100% happy and also if need be your Communications team, that we will ever go live with the show. And the show, as I said earlier is pretty popular. We have been going let's say three years.
I've interviewed over 200 Treasury professionals on the show.
Each episode has been downloaded about 300 times.
Amazing audience! Total downloads over 70,000 now - pretty amazing! Amazing stories and I hope anyone watching who is interested either if you're interested in being on the show or you know, someone who think actually they've got some great stories to share, you'll be able to suggest them to me and send them through. Just send them to www.treasurycareercorner.com, and you'll be able to find out a little bit more.

Who's been on the show? Who else has been featured?
Well, we've had Treasurers from Anglian Water, Dow Chemicals, Indeed,
Porsche, Puma, Unilever, and the list continues to grow, some pretty amazing guests I've got to say, and I'd love you to join them.
So please let us know who you want to have on the show.
I'll invite them on to the podcast.
Thanks for all your support you wonderful, wonderful treasury people. Love you and I hope see you in the real world, not just virtually very soon.
Many thanks.

Why I Created The Treasury Salary Survey

Ever since 2002, our Global Treasury Salary survey has offered an accurate picture of salary ranges and market trends.

That mission still exists today but it has expanded to focus on the sentiments related to job satisfaction, overall fulfilment and understanding “THE WHY” behind these attitudes.

Although I share highlights of the survey in the video, the full results are only made available to those Treasury Professionals who take part in the survey via
www.TreasurySalary.com
