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.

A county located in the East Midlands, Nottinghamshire shares borders with South Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire.
Those seeking Divisional Manager roles in the region will have plenty of options to consider, particularly in the larger settlements like Mansfield, Newark-on-Trent and Worksop.
Nottingham, the traditional county town, is the biggest settlement in the area, with the largest population. It also usually ranks within the top 10 highest GDPs per capita in the country. However, the county council is based in West Bridgford.
For much of its past, the region thrived on agriculture and textiles. Nottinghamshire is probably best known for its famous fictional resident, Robin Hood. Indeed, the legend of the man who robbed from the rich to feed the poor is the major reason for the region's high rate of tourism. Meanwhile, the local economy also relies on the service sector and retail.
What's more, a number of large companies have headquarters or major facilities in the region. Boots the Chemist was founded in Nottingham in 1849 and its head office is still there. Others include E.ON UK, Gala Group, Siemens, Speedo, Games Workshop, Experian, Reuters and Capital One.
