Branch Manager - Crawley
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 Crawley
Located between Brighton and the capital, Crawley is a West Sussex town about 28 miles south of London Charing Cross. It's a great spot for those seeking Branch Manager vacancies and the town also serves as a commuter hub.
With a history dating back to the Stone Age, Crawley was an important location during the Roman Period, serving as a centre for ironworking and then becoming a market town during the 13th century.
During the Victorian era, the railway came to Crawley. This helped the region to grow and engineering and manufacturing became more prominent - something that continues today.
Indeed, just some of the businesses with factories or other facilities in Crawley include BOC Edwards, Unilever, APV Vent Axia and Thales, a manufacturer of flight simulators.
Crawley is a centre for finance, home to a number of banking, insurance and credit companies such as Deloitte & Touche and B & CE Benefit Schemes. It's also an important location for the transport and communication industry - such as First Choice Holidays, William Reed Group and Metrobus.
What's more, Gatwick Airport, one of the busiest airports in the UK, is situated on the edge of town. Not only does it see more than 30 million passengers pass through its gates every year, it is also a major cargo handler, dealing with freight shipments from around the world.
