You have my deepest sympathy...
This situation should
work to your advantage. An engineer with financial acumen is a rare and valuable beast. I'm sure if you can get your CV in front of the right manager you have a good chance.
The problem is getting through the recruitment / HR people in the first place who will try to pigeon-hole you - they are not (in my experience) very good at dealing with people whose skills fit across a number of areas, even though those are the very people that engineering managers are looking for! So certainly register your CV with as many recruiters as you can, but don't expect miracles. Far better applying for individual jobs where you can tweak your CV to balance it for the particular jobs.
The LinkedIn job search is very good, also "TheCareerEngineer". I should of course also recommend the IET job search, although to be honest this does not have a very large number of jobs on it, but does sometimes have jobs that are not visible elsewhere. I'm sure others can recommend other sites.
