Branch Manager - Burnley

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 Burnley

Whereas most northern towns with milling and industrial heritage are closely linked to a major city such as Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle or Glasgow, Burnley is something of an oddity thanks to its relative isolation. It’s a good 22 miles (34 km) to the centre of Manchester to its direct south, about the same distance west or Bradford and the next major settlement to its north is Carlisle, 80 miles (130 km) away. Its nearest neighbour is Blackburn, 10 miles to the west and roughly Burnley’s twin in terms of population (and its footballing rival).

Burnley started out as a market town, trading chiefly in wool and other farm products, until the Industrial Revolution, and particularly the canals, reached the town. When coal was discovered close by, the picture was complete. Before long the town was thriving, with wool mills and eventually cotton mills powered by steam engines making the town thunder with productivity. Inevitably, the mills were to gradually close down and Burnley went through a period of isolation and stagnation, particularly after the Second World War.

The town is, however, looking forward, and has attracted investment and jobs over recent years. Industrial estates have sprung up around the town, and perhaps because of the distance to large cities, Burnley has become almost self-sufficient when it comes to retail, with a bustling town centre and a host of chains setting up shop there. This all adds up to a positive story for those looking for Branch Manager positions in the Burnley area.
