THE WHO, THE WHAT AND THE WHERE

Our client is a proud, family-owned business that has been running for the better part of two decades. They provide fabrication services for the mining, industrial and commercial sectors in WA. They take a turnkey approach to ensure quality and customer satisfaction is instituted along the entire process. In fact, their quality products, reliability, and commitment to customer service is what sets them apart from the rest. A fast-growing company, constantly reaching new avenues, they have been the busiest they have ever been in the last 12 to 18 months and need a Finance Manager who can keep this pace up.

You should see the incredible and huge, custom-built facility that they moved into a few years ago. This team of around 20-30 workshop and office staff genuinely enjoy each other’s company; they have regular BBQs and other events which help solidify camaraderie and team cohesiveness. We are looking for someone who wants to join in and get to know their co-workers as more than just ‘colleagues’.
