Divisional Director jobs
Overseeing an entire division of a logistics company takes an intimate understanding of the company’s strategic aims and an ability to motivate the managers and staff to fulfil them. Successful divisional directors will need to have experienced the day-to-day running of a logistics operation and to have had executive powers, and will have managed teams of people to a high standard.
The specifics and balance of the job will vary from employer to employer, but there will always be a blend of customer relations, account management, commercial operation and transport management in the divisional director’s role. It’s a task for a high calibre person who is confident enough to make important decisions and see that the instructions are followed through by using hands-on and hands-off approaches where necessary.
With such an important role comes great responsibility but also potentially impressive rewards if targets are met and should new innovations inspired by the divisional director become profitable. It is vital that directions from the board or self-inspired are delivered in a clear and actionable way to meet the needs of the company.
The skills required
At this level of employment, candidates will usually have to have had a number of years’ experience of directing or managing a company or division in the logistics sector. With a large employer, the DD might have a substantially sized team under their control, and will need to be assertive enough to ensure that those under their direct instruction have received and understood messages and know how to realise them.
Specific knowledge of IT systems used in logistics would be advantageous but at the directorship level, most of the operational work will be carried out by management and technicians, so the people management, communication, financial and motivational aspects of the job will come to the fore.
