We believe that the East Midlands is the best place in the UK to build a career in the industry and wanted to create an event which recognised this.
Entries from over 30 businesses saw 150 guests join forces to celebrate the hard work & achievements of the East Midlands finance community; in true Distinct style. With Doughnotts and dancing, we’re doing it all over again.
The EMFA will once again take place at Nottingham Contemporary in June 2020.

Just wanted to drop you a note to say a huge thank you for a fantastic event last night. Those of us that attended from Capital One really enjoyed it and we all felt that it was a much nicer atmosphere and event than a formal sit-down awards dinner. Nice job!

Many thanks for everything about the awards – the whole team had a great evening and it’s big news here at Rutland!
Chief Executive @ Rutland Cycling
First and foremost, I was really pleased to support Distinct Recruitment’s East Midlands Finance Awards. Celebrating the wealth of talent amongst the finance professionals in the East Midlands is really important, and I’m happy to see Distinct stepping forwards and creating this event.
Having no less than 4 finalists from SDL across all 3 categories was particularly gratifying, and then alongside that, seeing the sheer quality and talent amongst the other businesses really brought home just how many talented individuals and teams we have on our doorstep.
It was a real privilege to win the Finance Director of the Year award. With the growth SDL has gone through over the last few years, it has allowed me to build a finance team bursting with talent and hunger, position them at the centre of the business, and then let them get on and do what they do best. They make me look good, and they give me the foundation to drive the business and the finance team forwards. A big thanks to them and a big thanks to Distinct for my recognition and for creating a platform for wider recognition of finance teams across the Midlands.
Chief Financial Officer @ SDL Group
The Finance Team of the Year award was full of outstanding nominations from great businesses, so to hear “Rutland Cycling” was an incredibly proud moment for me, knowing how much this means to the team. It means a lot to the team and the whole business, we are very proud and grateful.
Finance Director @ Rutland Cycling
Receiving the Rising Star Award at the East Midlands Finance Awards was a wonderful surprise and a touching celebration of both my own work, and the incredible work of my peers within the Finance profession. Distinct Recruitment hosted the fantastic and pioneering awards ceremony in the Nottingham Contemporary and did an incredible job in recognising and celebrating Finance professionals within the East Midlands. Thank you!
