TalentSphere is proud to partner with a national building materials retailer to support their search for a Branch Manager for one of their busy branches in Surrey, BC.
This established Lumber and Building Materials Retailer provides products for both commercial and residential markets and has a strong contractor base in the territory.
As Branch Manager for the location, you will be accountable for the operations, customer service, shipping and receiving, and warehousing for the facility. Ultimately your leadership will be key to the ongoing success of the location and you will work closely with the sales team to ensure a seamless connection between sales and service. You will set the direction of the business locally, take responsibility for the efficient operation of the location and provide leadership to the staff with the aim of being the highest performing branch in the country.
You will manage the team which consists of a warehousing, inside sales, shipping and receiving, and customer service staff of approximately 15. A keen eye for detail and experience leading and managing these functions in the past will allow you to spot opportunities for efficiency improvements, identify ways to improve customer service and ensure safety is of the highest standards.
The successful candidate will have proven leadership experience from within the building materials industry in an operational role (whether that be manufacturer, distributor, dealer or retailer). People skills to lead a team are the one of the key attributes that we are looking for. A knowledge of dealing with contractors will be key to your success and is a 'must have' for the successful candidate. It is likley that the successful candidate will have run either a retail or distribution location previously.
In turn for high performance, the company provides recognition in the form of both profile and remuneration and high achievers will find clear career paths opening up from this role.
Thank you for your interest, we look forward to your application.
