The implementation of a comprehensive IT system throughout a large company is a massive undertaking that requires a highly skilled and specialized team behind it. Programmers, developers, hardware technicians, project managers, help desk workers and the managers overseeing the individual elements of the project all add up to a significant portion of a company’s workforce, and they need to be led strategically by someone on the board whose responsibility is solely with them. That person is the IT director.
The IT director creates an IT strategy from the board’s overarching strategy and projections, and works closely with his or her immediate IT managers to ensure the project is delivered. As a board member, he or she may have some access to the company purse to ensure complex IT projects are adequately resourced, but keeping a lid on costs is always a key responsibility; IT budgets spiralling out of control is a common story in business and the public sector.
At board level, an IT director could have little experience in dealing with information technology, but will build a team of managers to oversee the work. However, if you have experience of managing IT projects to a senior level, you could be the ideal candidate for many companies whose boards rely on the IT director’s expertise and counsel to inform them of the opportunities and limitations of the technology.
Primarily, your job as IT director is to oversee the delivery of either single IT projects or an ongoing series of projects as designated by the board, and your success will be judged on your performance in delivering projects on time and on budget. This can be a highly responsible job, often at the cutting edge of technology, and managing budgets can be difficult. However, with successful implementation, the rewards can be great.

A seaside city on the south coast, Brighton is an energetic location known for its friendly atmosphere, pebble beaches, buzzing nightlife and quirky charm.
It has long been a favourite weekend getaway for Londoners seeking a bit of sunshine and sea air and in 1787 the Prince of Wales set up his holiday home here, creating an extravagant building now known as the Royal Pavilion.
The tourism industry further increased when the London and Brighton Railway arrived in 1841, making day trips easy between the resort and the capital.
Of course, there's far more to Brighton than the social scene and those seeking IT Director vacancies will have a good range of options to consider.
The city's economy, which was mainly based in manufacturing and engineering during the 19th century, has been transformed over the last 30 years. These days, Brighton is home to a number of businesses based in digital media - Like FDM and Semantio - and it has earned itself the nickname Silicon Beach.
Financial giant American Express has its European headquarters in Brighton and employs thousands of people in the city centre.
Cosmetics company The Body Shop was founded here in 1976; it is now part of the L'Oreal group and is now based in nearby Littlehampton.
In addition, Brighton is home to two large universities, a number of tourist spots, various retail centres and the UK's second largest arts festival, which occurs every May.
