Previously, he was the chief commercial officer of NYSE Euronext's Clearing House in London. He left the exchange in October of 2012.
Birley began his career in the financial markets as the second employee of the fledgling South African Futures Exchange (SAFEX), which he helped develop into one of the world's most active derivatives exchanges.

He served as a senior advisor at the London Stock Exchange (LSE) from October 2010 – August 2011. He was hired to advise on the establishment of a new clearing house that the LSE appeared to be planning at the time and presumably to run that clearing house, though his hiring was never officially announced.
In October 2011, Birley was appointed as the non-executive deputy chairman of financial PR and strategic consultancy Rostron Parry Ltd. His previous roles also include senior management positions at the London Metal Exchange, FTSE Group
