The UK Treasury Recruitment market has slowed down over recent months with some hesitation from our clients to channel their efforts into driving headcount growth at a time of clear economic and political unrest.
That said, there have been some good roles at the £25,000 to £50,000 range which has kept me very busy over recent weeks.
One trend we are noticing more and more however is that clients are becoming more specific in their requirements, only interviewing candidates who tick every single box on the job description. This tends to be more prolific at the £50,000 to £80,000 level of the market. If for example a candidate doesn’t possess an accountancy or treasury qualification, or has no prior experience using a specific Treasury Management System, clients just simply will not consider them. This has meant that clients are missing out on potentially suitable candidates simply because they are not a precise match on paper.
We always advise our clients to approach any new recruitment assignment with an open mind. Of course, there will be a selection of ‘Must Have’ skills and requirements with any role, however keep these to a minimum and where the skill is not critical, ensure this is viewed as a ‘Nice to Have’ rather than something that is essential.
If you find yourself in this situation and would like some general advice and support, please do not hesitate to contact me, I am always available to help!
