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.

Sutherland sits at the head of mainland Britain, with Caithness to its east and Ross & Cromarty to its south. It has coastlines to its north, west and south-east. The county is large in area but small in population, its land mainly being used for agriculture. Sutherland is now part of the greater Highland council area. The county town is Dornoch (with a population of just over a thousand), down at eh south-eastern tip on the coast. The county is served by the A9 that runs up the east coast of northern Scotland, as well as the main railway to Inverness.
With such a sparse population, IT Director jobs and other such management and executive positions are quite uncommon in Sutherland itself. However, larger towns such as Inverness are an hours or so away by road from the southern parts of Sutherland, so focusing a job search in such towns might be a more fruitful option.
