My client, a leading manufacturing Group is looking for a new Finance Director for one of the most profitable divisions. The role will partner with the local MD and contribute to the evolution of the divisional strategy.

Client Details

Michael Page has been engaged on an exciting assignment to support an international manufacturing group on the recruitment of a Divisional Finance Director role to be based in Derbyshire.

The Group has clear ambitions to drive the performance of the local business through effective business partnering and clear financial controls - which the successful candidate will take accountability for.


As the Divisional Finance Director, you will be the key contact when it comes to all things finance for the Division whilst supporting and driving the local strategy with the Managing Director.

This role has a unique blend of high level strategic input and influence combined with the day-to-day financial controls and processing. The role will therefore suit someone who has the desire to become more strategic whilst retaining the day-to-day reporting and controls.

Key to the success of the applicant will be the ability to demonstrate where you have added significant value through analysis, robust controls and commercial questioning.

Other key duties will include:

  • Lead, train and inspire a small team in accounts
  • Drive the performance of the business through insightful challenge and rigorous controls
  • Report monthly, quarterly and annual results through to the Group function
  • Build significant relationships with key stakeholders in the business


This is a genuinely unique opportunity to join the Derbyshire based division, develop your career as a Divisional Finance Director and to broaden skills and experiences that most organisations would expect you to already demonstrate at this level.

It will act as a great development platform for an aspiring Finance Director who has the foundations in controls and the commercial acumen to challenge and support the business.

Ideally, the successful candidate will:

  • Have a background in industrial, project or manufacturing businesses
  • Demonstrate high levels of intellect possibly through a 2:1 or 1st class degree and a professional qualification (ACA, ACCA or CIMA)
  • Be looking to make a transition from a group reporting or Financial Controller role
  • Demonstrate excellent interpersonal skills and high levels of emotional intelligence
