Treasury Operations Director
At Pearson, we’re committed to a world that’s always learning and to our talented team who makes it all possible. From bringing lectures vividly to life to turning textbooks into laptop lessons, we are always re-examining the way people learn best, whether it’s one child in our own backyard or an education community across the globe. We are bold thinkers and standout innovators who motivate each other to explore new frontiers in an environment that supports and inspires us to always be better. By pushing the boundaries of technology — and each other to surpass these boundaries — we create seeds of learning that become the catalyst for the world’s innovations, personal and global, large and small.
The Treasury Operations Director is responsible for executing and overseeing day to day global cash management, foreign exchange and interest rate activity. This will involve:
Reviewing cash forecasts;
Overseeing and executing cash management activity and proposing process improvements;
Executing and supervising fx and interest rate hedging activity;
Transferring cash balances to the centre.
The team includes three analysts and will work closely with the Vice President, Treasury (Deputy Treasurer) who is responsible for the treasury change projects, and the Vice President, Treasury and Insurance who is responsible for financial risk management.
The group has operated in a highly de-centralised manner with little central control or monitoring. In order to improve this, a significant change operation is underway led by the VP Treasury: linking theTreasury Management System to major group ERP systems, setting up loan agreements, implementing SWIFT and creating an In-House Bank. Many of these processes have now progressed to the implementation stage and require a significant change in the way that the treasury team operates day to day and how it interacts with the rest of the group. With such a significant change agenda to complete, this role requires a highly organised, technically proficient individual with strong coaching skills and the ability to devise practical and commercial solutions to achieve our objectives.
We are a relatively new team who have come together and created a great dynamic. This is an exciting opportunity for someone to join a company committed to making a difference at a senior level and work in an environment where we value achievement, development and having fun.
As the role is a global role, there will be exposure to a wide variety of regulatory environments and some opportunity for travel.
Significant treasury expertise managing a complex treasury operation, including operations in emerging markets;
Experience of working in on multiple projects on tight time scales.
