Depending on the size of the company, export managers will need to have an understanding of either exporting to a small number of countries or general exporting.
Certain jurisdictions will have importation laws specific to them, so an intimate knowledge of these laws will be needed if the employer exports to these countries. Many employers will sell their products to a small number of markets, and will employ export managers with specific experience there.
On the other hand, companies that export more widely will be looking for export managers with a great understanding of export regulations in general rather than specifically.
Reporting to commercial director or similar, the export manager will need to produce regular operations reports and manage the export team profitably and efficiently, maintaining the smooth and trouble-free export operation that will be essential to the company’s success.
Good experience of exporting goods is usually required for a managerial role, preferably as a manager; however, exporting experience in a good non-managerial position will be sufficient for some talented individuals. Deep knowledge of the importing laws of specific countries being exported to will probably be required, while an excellent understanding of your own country’s export law will almost certainly be needed.
As the job will require regular contact with overseas clients, aptitude or fluency in one or more foreign language, particularly the official language or common language of the client’s country will be beneficial.
An ability to manage staff under your control as well as taking instructions from the higher levels of the company will be an essential skill.
