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 cathedral city of Lincoln has been an important location throughout our island’s history. Iron age settlements have been excavated there, and under the name of Lindum Colonia, it became an key Roman town. It formed the junction of several roads to London, York, the East Coast (present-day Skegness), and the fort of Venonis, near present-day Coventry. The Roman roads still stand out on the map, in the shape of the A46 running south-west towards Leicester, and more notably the north-south running A15 to Scunthorpe, which would follow a perfect straight line all the way were it not for a kink around RAF Scampton, home of the Red Arrows.
The town was largely agricultural until the industrial revolution and the arrival of the railways, which brought many industrial entrepreneurs to the city. One of the companies that was to set up in Lincoln was William Foster & Co., which would go on to design and build the first tanks in their Lincoln factory during the First World War. Much of this heavy industry is no longer in existence in the city, following a series of conglomerations and takeovers, although there is still a large Siemens works and gas turbines remain the largest single source of employment in the city. Most of the old engineering plants have now been converted into small manufacturing, IT and service industries.
The university and tourism are important attractions for jobs and visitors, and there are several out of town retail parks around the city. It is a beautiful city to live and work in, so if you’re on the lookout for a IT Director job in Lincoln, look no further than Cast UK.
