job description

We are currently seeking enthusiastic and qualified applicants for the exciting position of Assistant Branch Manager at an Import Auto Parts business in Central Edmonton. We are searching for individuals with previous supervisory experience and a focus on team building, customer service and continuous improvement.
In this position you would report directly to the regional manager who oversees two other locations in Calgary. This means that although the title is Assistant Branch Manager, you will often be solely responsible for the day-to-day operations of the branch and its approximate 12 employees and enjoy a significant amount of autonomy. We are looking for someone who really has a mind for process and Improvement. The warehouse racking in inventory systems are somewhat dated and the regional manager is looking for someone who can not only run the branch day-to-day but also make a significant contribution in the planning and execution of some big improvements that he wants to implement.

This is a great opportunity to join a well-established and financially backed company at a point where they are looking at making some big changes and improvements. It has the advantages of joining at the "ground floor" type opportunity without the downsides of potential lack of resources. The company is owned by one of the largest Auto Parts corporations in the world so there will be resources and opportunities associated with a larger corporation.

The regional manager joined the company at the beginning of 2020 and is looking for the right person to fill this position to support the staff that have been running on a very lean crew and really start to get some momentum behind the improvements he wants to put in place. If you were a person who feels a large sense of reward from making a real difference in your employees lives this could be a great opportunity for you. We need someone who is not just okay with change... we need someone who craves it and wants to drive it. Someone who can lead their team through change with a calm and positive approach while being hands on and truly leading from the front as a manager who is not afraid to get their hands dirty.

If this sounds like something that would fit for you, please review the below required qualifications and other job details along with instructions on how to apply for this exciting position.
