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.
