Mike Richards
Mike RichardsCEO & Founder
As the Founder of The Treasury Recruitment Company and with over 20 years’ experience in the Treasury industry, Mike has become known as the Godfather of Treasury Recruitment. What he doesn’t know about the World of Treasury Recruitment, pretty much isn’t worth knowing and when it comes to knowing who’s who, he’s like Rain Man!

You can hear him interviewed on this PodCast too!

When he’s not meeting the next top Treasurer, or presenting at one of the world’s leading Treasury Conferences, he’s playing rugby at his local club, running around like a mad thing with one of his four children (yes four!) or escaping from both his ‘mad houses’ to the local pub for a beer!

Please contact Mike to discuss your career steps if you are a Senior Treasury professional seeking a new challenge or are generally looking for market advice and guidance.

Call 0203 603 4448 or mob +44 7813 612 399.

Laura White
Laura WhiteOperations Director
After 10 years working in the Retail Recruitment space and spending way too much time carrying out valuable “market research” in the many retail stores around Oxford Circus (a.k.a shopping!!), Laura decided to branch out into a new sector and joined the exciting world of Treasury. She brings with her a wealth of operational recruitment experience that has helped the business immensely.

When Laura is not working with Mike on a Retainer project for the next Group Treasurer of a FTSE100 business, or training one of our new consultants, she is spending time with her dog Maisie who she rescued from the streets of Turkey when she was on holiday there last year. Either that or receiving her endless ASOS and Topshop deliveries all of which seem to be returned the next day. A self-confessed shopaholic!

Give Laura a call to discuss any assignments we are working on currently or if you have any queries. She is here to help or will point you in the direction of someone who can!

Carly Larcombe-Birks
Carly Larcombe-BirksPA & Recruitment Coordinator

Carly’s main role is to support Mike on the day to day office activities whether that be managing his diary, helping on the latest retainer project or simply making Mikes life a little easier!

A black belt in Taekwondo Carly can often be found catching up on the latest MMA events. A self-confessed lover of the Arts and all things creative Carly is equally at home in the theatre as she is in the Dojang. Blood Brothers being up there as her all-time favourite musical.

Eira Cannon
Eira CannonTreasury Recruitment Associate
Eira works alongside the lovely Danielle on the UK desk. Her primary focus is to support candidates in finding their dream jobs and specialises in roles from Treasury Assistant through to Senior Treasury Manager level. She comes from a strong retail sales and customer service background which lends itself perfectly to the dynamic world of treasury recruitment.

She is a bit of a creative cat at heart and a budding photographer, which is a passion she continues to pursue in her free time. She is also a very proud owner (some would call obsessed!) of her dog ‘Leah’ who has been known to accompany her to the office on occasion – to the absolute delight of the rest of the team!

Thank you and well done on finding our new Treasury Manager. He is a great fit for our business.

Once again you managed to identify our needs as a client, work out the personal management styles involved and slip in someone under the radar who manages to steal the show. Great job!

And a pleasure working with you.

Thanks once again for making such a good match!

david-armstrongDavid Armstrong, Direct Wines
I consider myself extremely lucky to have had the opportunity to meet Mike and MR Team while looking for the next step in my career in treasury.

What distinguishes Mike from the rest is knowledge, experience, commitment and insight on what Treasury recruitment is all about.

He is able to establish a one-to-one approach, understand candidate backgrounds and client’s needs and find the best match, obviously to everyone’s best interest. I have appreciated the genuine interest, the honest feedback and the very interesting insightful conversations.

I will, or even better I have already, recommended Mike and his team to treasury professionals looking for the next big step in their career.

The Treasury Recruitment Company placed me in my current role and I love it.

Mike Richards was instrumental to turning my CV around in a way that gave me a proper opportunity to secure the position.

His excellent relationship with my employer also allowed him to introduce me into an already advanced recruitment process and still give me a fighting chance.

Thanks for finding me this great position.
