Group Financial Controller
Hays have been exclusively retained to recruit a Group Financial Controller for Doncasters in Burton.
Your new company
The Doncasters Group is a leading international manufacturer of high-precision alloy components which are designed to operate in the most demanding of conditions.

About the role
Leading the broader Group Finance team, you will be responsible for the day to day running of the Group’s financial accounting process and will set, maintain and deliver timely reporting. As Group Financial Controller, you will work closely with the Group’s site Finance Directors and Financial Controllers to establish and maintain an effective business control framework. You will also use your experience to be the primary contact for external auditor relationships.
