Curiosity may have killed the cat, but in this case, it’s a virtue. Discovering “why?” is way more valuable than just reporting on “what”. CIMA would be good (including part-qualified) or ACCA. And if you ask the right questions often enough, there’s a career to be forged for the future.


Based in central East Sussex you will be working in a specialist-niche engineering and manufacturing company. They have a strong market position both in the UK and Internationally and a team that work together to meet very specific customer requirements. They are looking for a Finance Manager to lead a small internal team.


Reporting to the Managing Director, this is a very hands-on role for you and your team.

You’ll be responsible for production, accuracy, analysis and reporting of all the finance elements including the production of the accounts, budgeting and forecasting, cash flow, invoicing, credit control, purchase ledger, payroll, banking and tax.

You will be the individual giving the company healthy commercial rigour to all their operations.



  • CIMA (or part) qualified accountant with a minimum of 2 years experience
  • Knowledge of and experience working within an engineering / manufacturing /process environment preferred, but not essential.
  • Experience of International trading and handling foreign transactions.
  • Able to communicate effectively at all levels and operate as a trusted partner to the management team.
  • Payroll experience.


It’s a 40-hour week based in central East Sussex.


Our client offers a basic salary up to £55k depending on skills and experience – and curiosity. And there will be career growth opportunities thereafter.


The target start date is as soon as practically possible depending on notice periods. Before will be a screening interview with Martin Ellis of the RSE Group. Thereafter will be two interviews at our client’s offices.
