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.

If you’re scouring maps of Devon, Dorset or Sussex searching for Southport, stop now. It’s most definitely in the northern half of England, about halfway between Liverpool and Blackpool. Like the famous towered resort, it’s a tourist town, with miles of beach and the usual seaside attractions like boating lakes, a pier, a promenade and a famous model village. However it has close links with the city to its south, not least because both are in Merseyside.
The town grew up during the Victorian period as a fashionable spa town, and much of the architecture remains on the front. As workers’ holidays got a foothold, the town, with its good rail links, became a popular destination for the workers of places such as Liverpool, Preston, Wigan and Bolton to spend a week or a weekend in summer. With little of a manufacturing base, the town’s existence was threatened in the 60s and 70s as tourists got the option of flying to Spain or Greece instead of staying in Britain, but it managed to survive where others failed by focusing on short breaks and holding events such as air shows, flower shows and festivals.
Southport is best known in the area as having a large population of affluent people. It’s a favourite home of Liverpool and Everton footballers, as well as other celebrities, particularly those from the North West. There’s a thriving night life, with a wealth of bars, restaurants and clubs. Although it is not a traditional industrial town, sometimes Divisional Manager positions do come up in the Southport area. Tourist towns do require a good deal of movement of goods to service both the local population and the visitors. There are frequently building and civil engineering projects in the region, too.
