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 county in the south-west of England, Gloucestershire shares borders with a number of counties - including Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Oxfordshire and Somerset - as well as Wales.
Various towns and cities are located here, such as Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stroud, Tewkesbury and Cirencester, and it offers a wealth of choice for those seeking IT Director vacancies.
For much of its past, this region has been agricultural, with market towns trading wool and dairy products. During the Industrial Revolution, textile making and cloth production became important to the local economy, and the canal network helped to make transport around the area easier.
These days, the service sector and tourism are both important for the area. Gloucestershire serves as a financial centre, home to companies like Cheltenham & Gloucester and Ecclesiastical Insurance, and it also has a number of aerospace companies like the Gloster Aircraft Company and GE-Aviation.
There's a large amount of light industry, with products being manufactured in Gloucestershire including foods and electronics.
The Government Communications Headquarters, also known as GCHQ, is located in Cheltenham, while a number of colleges and universities are also based within Gloucestershire.
