IT Director - Caithness

IT Director Jobs

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.

The skills required

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.

IT Director Jobs in Caithness

Caithness is the county at the most north-eastern corner of mainland Britain, and is part of the Highland area. The county is home to the town of John o'Groats, famous for being one end of mainland Britain's longest possible journey, the other being Land's End. The county is also home to the island's northernmost point, Dunnet Head, and settlement, Scarfskerry (population 300).

The largest town in Caithness is Thurso, which is located at the north of the county where the A9 meets the A386. Regular ferries make the trip to Orkney to the north, and there's also an airport at Wick over to the east. However the county is pretty sparsely populated, and ,much of its land is used for agriculture.

Agriculture, ferries and airports usually present opportunities for IT Director jobs, and sure enough, even here at the northern extremity of of our mainland, they, and other related positions, do occasionally come up. The closest large settlement is Inverness, which is a two-hour drive from the heart of Caithness, so commuting isn't necessarily an option either!
