  • Are you a Qualified Finance Professional with drive & ambition, looking for a commercial role that can really challenge you?

  • Are you confident in your ability to excel in a challenging role within a high growth, high profile engineering company?

  • Can you offer more than just numbers? Can you provide real commercial insight into business and project performance?

If so, we're excited to hear from you!

Our client is a market leading independent engineering company just outside Derby who have seen massive growth over recent years, having won a number of high profile contracts as well as receiving a multi-million pound injection of funding. They now have their sights set on international expansion, and require a talented and experienced Finance Business Partner to take control of the company's finances.

You'll be working with an established team, including a very talented Management Accountant, and as such this will be more of a commercially focussed role in which you'll be WITH the numbers, rather than producing them directly.
