My client is a long-established engineering business with a hard-won reputation for designing innovative solutions to match their clients’ specific requirements. As part of their succession planning they have been putting together a new senior management team that will take the business forward into new markets, in both the UK and Europe, while honouring the traditions that have served them so well thus far. As the final piece in the jigsaw, they are now seeking to recruit an ambitious graduate qualified accountant to a new role as Finance Director. Given the size and nature of the business, there will still be a degree of hands-on responsibilities, but the development of the existing team will ensure that this quickly becomes less onerous, and a large part of the role is to establish systems and procedures that will enable growth to be easily assimilated. You must be currently working in a manufacturing or engineering environment, with an emphasis on maintaining accurate production costing to ensure not only competitive tendering but also to enable expected margins to be achieved. With a good range of project experience, your career must demonstrate a track record of consistent success and personal growth, in short one that would inspire confidence in potential investors.
