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.

Ross and Cromarty is part of the Highland council area, but is itself a historical county that spans the width of the northern parts of Scotland, including the Isle of Skye. It is well known for its breathtaking landscape, with mountains, lochs and rugged coastline making it one of Scotland’s best loved holiday destinations. However the static population is relatively small, focused mainly on fishing and agriculture, as well as tourism.
Ross and Cromarty is bordered to the north by Sutherland and to the south by Inverness-shire. It is served by eh A9 eastern coast road and the A835 that joins the A9 just north of Inverness and branches north west to Ullapool.
As far as management jobs in logistics, procurement and supply chain are concerned, prospects within the county are about in line with its population, so if you’re looking for IT Director work, looking further afield to Inverness, Elgin or such like might produce more opportunities.
Cast UK never stop working with procurement, logistics and supply chain clients and applicants from across the country, and are dedicated to filling each position with the best talent possible. Our UK regional specialists can provide detailed information about the potential employers, the available job types and the average expected salary.
