Reporting to the divisional director and overseeing the implementation of decisions from the board while maintaining a smooth-running division and seeking out efficiencies, a divisional manager is an essential intermediate role in a large company. The job will involve working closely with the other managers of divisions in order to deliver the corporate aims of the employer.
Decisions made at board level will be wide-ranging but detailed, and crucial to the long-term interests of the company. It will be up to the divisional managers to interpret the instructions from the board or divisional director and decide which sub-departments need to know what information, and allocate this intelligence appropriately around the various departments.
Divisional managers in some companies might not have the intermediate director level to deal with and must deal directly with the board, delivering accounting and budgetary responsibilities as well as managing the personnel, security, health and safety and business development of the division.
Ideal candidates will have had experience of running a company division, preferably in the logistics sector. This means that an ability to absorb instruction as well as to deliver it lower down the scale will be an essential skill. Motivation skills will be required for this element of the job.
The role will suit flexible people who like every day to be different while maintaining an overall direction in keeping with the company’s strategic aims.
Some technical understanding of the products being distributed could well be required as different items will have different legal and physical attributes determining their storage and movement.

Situated in the East Midlands, Derbyshire is a county that shares a border with Greater Manchester, as well as Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, Staffordshire, Cheshire and Leicestershire.
Much of the Peak District is located within Derbyshire and just some of the towns in the region include Derby and Chesterfield, meaning there are many opportunities for those seeking Divisional Manager positions.
For most of its history, Derbyshire's economy has been based on agriculture, while the mining of natural resources such as coal, iron, lead and limestone were of particular importance during the Industrial Revolution. Of these, only the limestone quarries are still in operation.
The chocolate company Thorntons was established near Alfreton in 1911 - its headquarters are still based there today.
After the second world war, the first diesel-electric mainline passenger train was unveiled at the Locomotive Works in Derby and the British Rail Research Division was opened in 1964 with an aim to improve the country's train network. This eventually became the DeltaRail Group, which currently provides software and other technology for signalling and control systems.
JBC-Power Systems manufactures engines in the south of the county, Buxton Water is bottled here and Bombardier Transportation builds the rolling stock for the London Underground network.
Other companies with manufacturing facilities or an otherwise large presence include Rolls-Royce, Toyota and Trebor Bassets.
