Welcome to Jim Creswell, our Functional Safety Specialist

Jim Creswell

With over 20 years of practical experience having previously been a military electrical and mechanical draughtsman, more recently focusing on functional safety systems for machinery. Jim will be joining Finch as a Senior Consultant from his most recent role at Cyan Tec Systems, an automation and robotic solutions company.



In his new role, Jim will be building Finch’s functional safety capability and expanding our involvement in laser applications alongside providing client-facing training. He has ambitions to progress into the Expert Witness side of the business and represent the company at marketing events once he has settled in.

Commenting on his appointment, Jim said “Although I was not actively looking for another role, I was intrigued when an opportunity to work at Finch presented itself. The team of people at Finch speak the same (technical) language I do and are passionate about a whole range of engineering areas which were of interest to me.

What really made me think that Finch was right for me was the diligence and attention taken to ensure that I was ‘a Finch person’. They took the time to get to know me and I met lots of friendly and welcoming people that make Finch unique.”

Adding, Andrew Millington, Finance Director, commented, “Functional safety is a strong area of work for us, and we wanted to bolster our ranks to better serve our clients. Jim performed excellently during his interviews, we were really impressed with his ability to communicate and keep calm in high-pressure situations. We are always looking for ‘Finch people’ and we suggest taking a look at our careers page online as the best place to start.”
