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.

Many of us will have preconceived ideas about the nature of the Eastbourne identity, and unusually, most of us will probably be about right! It’s a south coast seaside town geared up for tourism, and the demographic is tipped towards the upper end of the age range. We might be surprised by the size of it, however. Its population is around the 100,000 mark, making it a rather large town, and if the demographic spread remains the same, this figure will probably grow as we are now living longer.
As well as families, groups, couples and individuals taking a break in Eastbourne, its Victorian splendour is seen as a bracing backdrop for conferences and AGMs, and it’s a sector the town is pushing quite strongly.
From a logistics, procurement and supply chain point of view, these facts are quite interesting, as it’s not just industry that has a need for moving large amounts of things around. Tourism is a huge consumer of perishable and non-perishable goods, and it all needs storing and distributing with its specific requirements being observed. For this reason, IT Director vacancies crop up from time to time in Eastbourne, so it’s always worth getting in touch if you’re looking for this kind of work here.
