IT Director - Worcestershire

IT Director Jobs

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.

The skills required

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.

IT Director Jobs in Worcestershire

A county in the West Midlands, Worcestershire's borders have changed numerous times throughout its past, merging with Herefordshire in the 1970s as part of the Local Government Act 1972, and then being re-established as its own entity in 1998.

In addition to Herefordshire, its neighbours include Shropshire, Staffordshire, Gloucestershire and Warwickshire.

Worcestershire comprises a number of large communities, such as Worcester, Kidderminster, Redditch, Malvern and Bromsgrove. These all offer a variety of choices when it comes to finding IT Director positions in the region, and many are considered satellite towns of Birmingham.

For much of its past, Worcestershire's economy has relied on the wool trade, and related industries. During the 19th century, glove making was an important business, while Kidderminster carpets gained a sound reputation that continues today. Historically, the region was also important for the production of hops and fruit like pears, cherries, plums and apples.

Today, retail, manufacturing, the service sector and technology are all important parts of the local economy, with companies based in the region including Qinetiq, which specialises in defence technology.

Of course, Worscestershire is also famous for its eponymous sauce - this has been manufactured by Lea & Perrins in Worcester since 1838, although the company is now owned by Heinz.
