all about branch manager jobs

Sales branch managers commonly work in a satellite office and oversee daily operations of the sales team in that location. Much like a sales manager, you are responsible for ensuring your staff maintains a high level of productivity and meets defined sales goals, while you create a strong and engaging work environment that ensures customers’ needs are met and operations are in line with company objectives.

You will need to have strong sales and management experience and take a hands-on approach to working with your team to meet sales goals. If you think this position is ideal for you, contact Randstad Canada today to explore your career options.


what branch manager jobs entail

Sales branch managers typically work in a satellite office that is located outside of the company corporate headquarters. You will usually work normal office hours; however, depending on the size and scope of the company you work for, some evenings and weekends may be required. As the branch manager, you are in charge of the location, but you will report to a senior leader from the corporate office.


average branch manager salaries

The average annual salary for a branch manager in sales and marketing is approximately $65,000. The salary range varies widely due to the variance in the type of branch manager positions, what you are selling, and other factors. Branch manager jobs can start as low as $35,000 per year and, with experience, you could make up to $100,000 per year or more. Performance bonuses are common and make up a portion of your compensation package.


your day to day tasks

As a branch manager, your main role is to ensure the branch is productive and runs as smoothly as possible. Your responsibilities will range from setting the work agenda, human resources, people management, and ensuring sales targets are met. Some of the specific roles and responsibilities that are part of the job include:

  • directing all operational aspects of the branch
  • developing and maintaining business plans and forecasts
  • budget management
  • assisting sales representatives as required
  • executing directives from the head office
  • dealing with customer issues and inquiries
  • ensuring a safe and effective work environment
  • networking and promoting the branch within the local community
  • staying up to date with market trends and news
  • identifying areas for improvement

where you can work

Sales branch managers can work in many different industries. They most commonly work in banking, insurance, and retail. These positions are typically spread out across the country in all size cities. Therefore, there are likely opportunities regardless of where you live in Canada.


what you bring to the table

As a branch manager, you will need to bring a skill set that is strong in both sales and management. A strong business and technology acumen is an asset for this position. Some of the skills hiring companies are looking for in sales branch managers include the following:

  • people management
  • sales and marketing
  • strong leadership abilities
  • HR management skills
  • experienced with sales strategy, forecasting, and leading a sales team
  • ability to work in stressful situations, under tight deadlines

training and certifications

Most organizations require their sales branch managers to have a university degree in business, sales, marketing or other related fields. You will be expected to have both strong sales and management experience. Sales, business, or management certification or post graduate education in these areas is an asset. Expect to receive training and coaching as part of the ramping up period when hired.


where your career is headed

A sales and marketing branch manager is a step up from entry level sales positions such as sales representative or marketing coordinator. Many sales branch managers have a background in sales or retail and may have worked as an assistant manager in the past. Career prospects in this area are good, however, with many sales roles making the transition to online, these positions may dip in the future.

Many sales branch managers make unilateral moves to work as managers for other companies in the same industry. With experience, you could also move up to a territory or regional manager. Some also move into corporate roles in sales and marketing.
