IT Director - Hastings

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 Hastings

Hastings has no historical claims on the UK’s culture – unless you count a minor scuffle in 1066 that changed the rulers of the nation forever. In fact, the main battle took place on a Senlac Hill, about 6 miles (10 km) to the northwest of the town, but it’s known to generations of schoolchildren as the Battle of Hastings. Perhaps if Harold had not needed to take his army north to repel an invasion of Norsemen just as the Norman invasion was happening, the battle, and British history, would have been very different. And that probably means we wouldn’t all be here, so we owe the Norwegians one!

The town became an important fishing village as time progressed, and fishing still plays a part in the town, and the largest beach-based fishing fleet in Europe is based there. The town, like many seaside towns, thrived during the Victorian period, especially when the railway came, and Hastings was one of a string of popular holiday destinations along the south coast. It still remains so.

Hastings is a relatively large town, with a static population approaching 100,000. Its tourism industry is its largest employer, but fishing and its related industries is still quite important. Around the town there are many small businesses and a few retail and industrial parks. The diversity of industry and the population that changes seasonally means that IT Director jobs do appear from time to time in Hastings, so it is always worth checking with us to see if anything is in the pipeline in or around the town.
