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.

Nestled between Inverness-shire and the county of Moray is Nairnshire, a historic county that’s now part of the greater Highland council area. Its focal point is the town of Nairn on its northern coast. The county is served by the east-west railway that joins Aberdeen to Inverness, and also the A96 and A939. To the south of the county is the beautiful Cairngorms National Park. The county town of Nairn is a seaside resort and fishing port, with a harbour that was built by engineer Thomas Telford.
Nairnshire is not particularly highly populated and prospects for upper-level logistics and supply chain work such as IT Director jobs are in line with this. However with Inverness just down the road, there could be more opportunities there.
With a wealth of experience in the fields covered, Cast UK’s team of recruitment consultants understands what it takes to be a successful candidate for every vacancy. If you’re on the lookout for more information on the IT Director positions available in Nairnshire or anywhere else in the UK, please get in touch so we can talk about what’s on offer.
