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.

Home of the Beatles and Cilla Black, Rick Astley and Elvis Costello, Liverpool has definitely delivered when it comes to musical treasures. But the city generates far more than pop hits, so jobseekers looking for IT Director roles in Liverpool are sure to find an array of possibilities.
The Merseyside city has long been an important port town. During the 18th century, its prominence in shipping led the region to become a global hub and an estimated 40 per cent of the world's trade came through Liverpool during the early 1800s, with products including tea, sugar, salt, tobacco and cotton.
Fast forward to today and this North West metropolis has one of the UK's largest economies. Its success is mainly thanks to the vast number of companies based in the service sector. What's more, Liverpool has become a fabulous place to live and work, with its exciting nightlife, loads of shopping, amazing dining spots and two top football teams.
These days, Liverpool remains an important part of the shipping industry, seeing millions of tonnes of cargo from lines like NYK and Maersk. Car manufacturing is another big part of the city's economy, while Lambrini, John West, Littlewoods and Sayers are also based here.
