Flagship Branch Manager – Electrical Wholesaler
Here’s your chance to run your own show; a flagship branch / distribution hub that serves the Trade across much of the Manchester. Great operation. Make it your own!
Whether you’re designing a massive electrical installation or need a last-minute part delivered to site, you need a supplier you can count on. That’s the part my client’s played for 30 years.
As a leading electrical wholesaler / distributor, they’ve built loyal customer base of specifiers, trades and end users, which they support via a national branch network.
The Manchester branch is a bit of a jewel in the crown, with a brilliant service reputation, a steady growth record and a solid bottom line.
It also shows fantastic potential. Are you ready to run it?
Run your own show
The company’s led by a down-to-earth MD who’s invested heavily in the business and has real ambitions for it.
He’ll be in your corner whenever you need him, but a great thing about this role is there’s no micro-management or daft edicts clogging up your inbox on a Monday morning.
Instead you’ll be able to plan and manage the branch your way, from choosing the right sales promotions to setting your own business development agenda.
Deliver results and this will be just the start of a wonderful journey…
More about the job
You’ll run an outlet that includes a busy trade counter (plus telephone / web sales), large warehouse and delivery operation, technical support / design service and branch admin.
That’s a team of around 5 people working day in, day out to keep the show on the road for customers, from specifying and pricing projects to delivering on-time, every time.
You’ll make sure everything about the branch is geared to these ends, while managing profitability and executing your own sales and marketing plan.
Key to this will be setting the tone and pace; inspiring a really good team, while building relationships and trust with key accounts.
We’re looking for someone from an electrical, building products or similar industry who has great leadership skills, real business acumen and a flair for customer relationships.
You could be a Branch Manager, Project Manager or Assistant Manager, or running the logistics side, or in a customer-facing technical sales role.
If you’re ready and able to run a £3m branch, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
