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.

The largest city in South West England, Bristol is a centre of commerce, culture and education and it has long been associated with sea travel, with the Port of Bristol being a major economic boon to the area.
Situated on the Bristol Channel at the mouth of the Avon River, Bristol also shares a bit of the Severn Estuary coastline. By the 12th century, the city was an important point for the shipping industry, especially for trade with Ireland (and later Iceland and France) and it quickly grew to become one of England's largest medieval towns.
Along with Liverpool, Bristol was one of main ports in the UK involved in the Triangle Trade and the list of commodities that were exchanged includes cloth and textiles, glass, fish, wine and grain. As the years passed, other industries began to expand, including manufacturing, engineering and transport.
Today, Bristol is a thriving community with plenty of opportunities for those seeking IT Director vacancies in the area.
One of the city's major employers is Defence Equipment & Support, which works to procure everything from ships and aircraft, through to munitions, technology and communications equipment for the MoD.
Other companies based in Bristol include Bristol Commercial Vehicles, BAE Systems and Orange UK.
