Are you looking for something different? Maybe you’ve spent your career so far in one of the big blue chips locally and now you want something new and exciting?

Most people probably know this university as being a powerhouse university. Not just in the UK but globally. Their finance team is equally impressive.

A 45-strong team looking after a c£300m budget. For me, they offer all the exposure, perks, and challenges of the major players locally employer-wise. But they then offer lots more on top. Whether it’s the nursery on site. The amazing pension contribution. Or those annual leave days being so high.

What’s the team like? Well, the judges at the East Midlands Finance Awards voted them as runner-up for the prestigious Large Finance Team of the Year award with sensational feedback.
