A day in the life of a Branch Manager:
The day starts bright and early, at around 7.30am to ensure the branch is ready for the start of the trading day at 8am. Leading from the front our branch managers (BM) lead both the operations and sales teams; a fleet of drivers, warehouse pickers, warehouse supervisors and customer sales advisors. The BM is responsible for keeping customer accounts under control and overseeing the retail trade counter to support the Click & Collect business and retail footfall. Ensuring also that there is a constant communication maintained within the sales office to ensure that our parts are delivered on time, every time.
