Branch Manager - Aylesbury
Branch Manager jobs
With a potential 24/7 stream of activities going on, a logistics branch can be a complex and time-sensitive place to work, which requires a cool head on its manager’s shoulders. A typical branch manager will report directly to the senior management, but these could well be in a different city or country to the branch, making an independent instinct essential while observing strategic goals.
In busy branches the role might include selecting employees and overseeing several departments, such as personnel, operations, security and accounting. In some cases the branch manager can also be responsible for marketing and selling the company’s services on a quasi-autonomous basis, possibly with a dedicated sales team to assist in the task.
By hands-on management and effective delegation of tasks, the branch manager should increase and maintain efficiency while fulfilling the core purpose of the branch. The degree of outside assistance and ongoing instruction that managers have will vary from employer to employer, but as the name suggests, the successful applicant will be expected to run the branch as per the strategic instructions from general management.
The skills required
Whether the branch manager is directly responsible for every member of staff within the branch or whether he or she is overseeing intermediate levels of management, good interpersonal skills are a must for the branch manager. Should the branch manager be required to promote the company as a whole via the branch, experience in sales and marketing are advantageous.
The manager should also be able to oversee multiple streams of responsibility, both mission critical and auxiliary, and know when delegation is more effective than hands-on management.

Branch Manager Jobs in Aylesbury
The county town of Buckinghamshire is Buckingham, right? Wrong. It's actually Aylesbury, a town about as close to the centre of the county as it's possible to be. It is roughly in the centre of a circle formed by London 33 miles (53 km) to the south east, Stevenage, Bedford, Northampton, Banbury, Oxford and Slough, going anticlockwise.
The town was traditionally a market town, where the surrounding farms and traders from more distant towns would congregate to sell their wares. Aylesbury still has a market four times a week, but this is by no means its main business. The town did have a strong milling industry until the mid-1800s, and it was the home to some food-related industry until quite recently, but nowadays its main employers are retailers and small businesses, as well as entertainment and the concentration of local government that accompanies any county town. Although Aylesbury was never a formal New Town, it did get redeveloped after the war, with displaced Londoners moving in and the old town being largely demolished to make way for new business properties.
Aylesbury is right in amongst the commuter belt for London, and houses a reasonably economically active population of around 70,000. The north west of the town is dominated by a large industrial estate with light and medium industry, retail and car showrooms. The town's diverse and largely affluent population, modern infrastructure and a decent amount of industry mean that Branch Manager jobs are often being created in Aylesbury, so please get in touch if you are in the area and seeking such work.
