Which career opportunities do treasurers have on the labour market?

Larger companies and groups with an annual turnover of at least EUR 100 million need the support of financing specialists. Therefore, they employ treasurers and promote their professional advancement. Treasurers having worked for a specific company for a few years may be promoted to commercial manager or board member, for example. In the light of increasing risks on the international capital markets and increasing legal regulation of financial transactions, the demand for treasurers is constantly growing.


What exactly does a treasurer do? Maintaining the solvency of the company at all times is the main activity of the treasurer. In corporate groups it is necessary to consolidate or pool the financial resources of all subsidiaries on a daily basis. In doing so, treasurers always take into account the financing costs in the form of interest on loans.

Treasury also includes the following tasks in the Finance department

✓ Financial risk management
✓ Procurement of loans from banks or on the capital market
✓ Cooperation with various financial organisations
✓ Managing and planning creditworthiness
✓ Reporting to the Executive Board
✓ Foreign exchange management

Only through cooperation with different departments and roles (e.g. CEO, CFO, controller, risk manager, legal departments and external stakeholders) can these extensive reports be produced. Therefore, strong interpersonal skills are an important prerequisite for the treasury profession.

Which skills should treasurers have?

To work as a treasurer, an academic degree in business administration with focus on finance or banking is usually required. Besides, prior professional experience gained at credit institutions, insurance companies or other financial organisations is advantageous. In addition, business fluent English skills are required since treasurers mostly work at large multinational companies.

Treasurers also need to have certain soft skills:

  • An analytical way of thinking and decisiveness
  • Stress resistance
  • Team spirit
  • An understanding of macroeconomic relationships in different countries
  • A strong willingness to assume responsibility


Companies reward the work of a treasurer extremely well. How much a treasurer earns exactly depends - as in many other professions - on what specific tasks are taken on. As a junior treasurer, you start with a gross annual salary of between 40,000 and 55,000 euros.

After a few years of professional experience, you advance to senior treasurer and usually earn at least 70,000 euros a year. But salaries of 100,000 euros and more are also quite common. Treasurers often receive a high salary-related bonus in addition to a fixed monthly salary.
