Treasurer job title

A great job title typically includes a general term, level of experience and any special requirements. The general term will optimise your job title to show up in a general search for jobs of the same nature. The level of experience will help you attract the most qualified applicants by outlining the amount of responsibility and prior knowledge required. And if your position is specialised, consider including the specialisation in the job title as well. But avoid using internal titles, abbreviations or acronyms to make sure people understand what your job posting is before clicking.

Examples of Treasurer job titles

    Treasurer
    Deputy Treasurer
    Corporate Treasurer
    Treasury Director

Treasurer job summary

A great job description starts with a compelling summary of the position and its role within your company. Your summary should provide an overview of your company and expectations for the position. Outline the types of activities and responsibilities required for the job so job seekers can determine if they are qualified, or if the job is a good fit.

Example of a Treasurer job summary

Our finance firm is currently seeking a Treasurer to oversee the company’s budget, financial planning and cash management while limiting risks to the organization. The successful applicant will have previous experience in corporate financial management and will be an integral part of maintaining positive relationships with banks and financial institutions. The Treasurer will work closely with executive management to ensure appropriate financial systems have been put in place and are constantly followed.

Treasurer responsibilities and duties

The responsibilities and duties section is the most important part of the job description. Here you should outline the functions this position will perform on a regular basis, how the job functions within the organisation and who the employee reports to.

Examples of Treasurer responsibilities

    Handle receipt, banking and protection of company funds, securities and financial products
    Anticipate borrowing needs and available funds for investment
    Develop an annual budget for the company and create long-term projections based on departmental needs and upcoming capital projects
    Maintain an efficient system of policies that adequately control treasury activities
    Ensure sufficient funds are available to cover operational and capital investment needs
    Advise Senior Management of loans, liquidity and investments
    Prepare financial reports
    Monitor third party activities handling outsourced treasury functions

Treasurer qualifications and skills

Next, outline the required and preferred skills for your position. This may include education, previous job experience, certifications and technical skills. You may also include soft skills and personality traits that you envision for a successful hire. While it may be tempting to include a long list of skills and requirements, including too many could dissuade qualified candidates from applying. Keep your list of qualifications concise, but provide enough detail with relevant keywords and terms.

Examples of Treasurer skills

    Master’s Degree in Accounting or Finance
    CPA certification
    5+ years of experience in corporate financial management
    Proficient with financial software systems
