what’s the difference between : director and manager and how can I use them correctly?
A Director is a someone who oversees a department and the managers within that department report to him/her.
For a exemple: Let’s assume you are the Director in a Music Department and I am the manager, who report to you about things that are needed in that department. Torsten please help if I am mistaken.
I would use it like this: All managers and senior managers, please submit your budget report to the Director of Music or Music Director by…“date”.
Also, "The Director of Catering would like to see all employees tomorrow at 8am prompt.
A manager is a person who manages employees. A director is a manager who has the word “director” in his title.
Sometimes a person who has “director” in his title doesn’t manage any employees at all, but is just responsible for some particular thing, such as a “social director” at a vacation resort, who is responsible for organizing social activities. However, sometimes a director really is the top manager in a department or company.
Really, the word “director” doesn’t tell you anything about a person’s job, except that he is in charge of something.
