Become a treasury manager

Treasury manager roles can be extremely interesting and offer great career development potential.

Treasury manager jobs are a natural step for treasury analysts looking to progress their careers. Competition is fierce though so employers can afford to be picky. We take an in-depth look at what the role involves and the skills you’ll need to succeed.

What are the key skills of a treasury manager?

To make yourself stand out, you’ll need the ability to thrive in a business partner environment and have proven experience of explaining financial figures to key stakeholders (e.g. Head of Treasury). You’ll therefore need to be personable and have strong communication skills.

A highly commercial role

To make yourself stand out, you’ll need the ability to thrive in a business partner environment and have proven experience of explaining financial figures to key stakeholders. 

It is commonly underestimated just how commercial these jobs are – people tend to think it’s just about providing the numbers but they are actually very forward-looking.

Treasury managers are essential in providing financing and treasury consultative advice. You will also in many instances be managing the short term investment portfolio to ensure that cash flow is maintained efficiently.

How do I become a treasury manager?

You also need to really sell your achievements and focus on what value you have added to your business, over and above the duties of your role. If you can get hands-on experience with the way corporations raise, hold, manage, borrow, and invest cash, you will also stand out
