Direct Rail Services is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA). Since its formation in 1995, DRS has developed and maintained an industry leading reputation for providing safe, secure, reliable and cost effective services within both nuclear and non-nuclear related markets.

As a profitable, dynamic business with a £75 million turnover per annum and over 400 staff, DRS has sustained and developed critical UK Nuclear transport capabilities and supported the decommissioning activities for the NDA and UK Nuclear Mission. Whilst it has diversified into other services, its raison d’etre will remain firmly focused on the transportation of specialist nuclear materials.

As Finance Director, you will ensure strong governance and best practice. You will work closely with the MD, other members of the Executive Team and the NDA, affecting informed business decision-making and acting at all times with the highest standards of professional and ethical behaviour. Whilst bringing wider business and financial acumen, you will satisfy public expectations of probity and accountability. Moreover, you will be a strong, robust, strategic leader, with the personal authority and experience of operating as a Finance Director in a comparable complex entity. 

Are you someone who has expanded their remit and evolved into being a strategic partner and advisor at board level?
