Assistant Manager

Assistant management is the gateway to greater responsibilities and the best way for you to understand if you want to pursue a management role.

Overview

Assistant managers provide an additional layer of leadership within organizations. Typically associated with companies in the retail and services spaces, assistant managers offer leadership, mentoring, scheduling and organization to a department. Becoming an assistant manager requires demonstrated leadership qualities, organizational soundness and an ability to prioritize and delegate work to a sometimes large group of direct reports. People that gravitate toward assistant manager roles are commonly friendly, outgoing and attentive with a keen ability to help get the most from those that they manage. Those that are successful will normally be offered roles of greater responsibility, such as Store Manager, Branch Manager, District Manager, etc.
