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 in the South East of England, Surrey shares borders with Kent, East and West Sussex, Hampshire and Berkshire, as well as Greater London, making it one of the Home Counties.
There are many large towns and villages in Surrey - such as Woking, Guildford, Ewell, Epsom and Redhill - making it a suitable choice for those seeking IT Director opportunities. What's more, with much of the county being considered part of the London commuter belt, it's also a good location for those who want to work in the capital but live away from the city.
For much of Surrey's modern history, the region has been known for paper manufacturing and gunpowder. However, these were in steep decline by the early 20th century and new industries took over, such as bicycle and car manufacture.
The McLaren Group, one of the best-known names in automotives, is based here. It has manufacturing and administration facilities in Woking and has also opened a technology centre for research and development.
Some of the region's other top employers include engineering firm WS Atkins, Philips Electronics, Colgate-Palmolive and Ericsson. There's also a large Alexander Dennis factory in the area, which manufactures chassis for buses and fire engines.
