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.

Located 10 km north-east of the centre of Manchester, Oldham is a town synonymous with the Industrial Revolution, as its numerous canals and mill buildings prove. Although outside the M60, it is still an integral part of the city, with many employees living in one and working in the other. In fact, this typical Lancashire town became part of newly formed Greater Manchester in 1974.
Though the mills have now gone, the industrial ethos continues to this day, which is why excellent IT Director positions in Oldham and its neighbouring towns of Chadderton, Royton, Shaw and Lees often emerge.
Precision engineering and tech firms have recently sprung up on the Victoria and Moss Lane industrial estates. Many of the mills have now been converted to residential or small business properties, but larger companies such as Medlock Interior, Ribble Packaging and Plastics Direct have made Oldham their home.
As Manchester’s growth as a business centre shows no sign of slowing down, towns in its orbit will continue to be attractive locations thanks to a blend of skilled workforce, excellent communications and relatively inexpensive property prices. The North West as a whole is fast emerging from the post-war slump as more and more businesses see the region as a superb place to base an HQ or regional office.
