IT Director - Transformation
Salary: £60K - £70K per annum
A unique opportunity for an experienced IT manager to shape how technology serves the business.
A national organisation based in the East of Glasgow is looking for an experienced IT professional, ideally with a background in the service sector or other client-led industry, to provide overall leadership and guidance to help the firm streamline the technology function and continue to develop a fit for purpose IT department via the transformation of existing systems and digital services. They currently employ in the region of 50 - 60 people, spread over several offices throughout the UK, with 16 in IT, split between software and infrastructure. This is an ambitious, progressive company in need of a fresh cutting-edge approach, so the role will suit an enthusiastic and energetic person who can bring new ideas to the table in terms of strategic technical direction.
You will report directly to the CEO and will have complete responsibility and accountability for the delivery of modern technology to the business. From the outset, the role will have several key themes:
** People Management - This role sits within the management team and the 16 strong technology team needs direction, and this role is to act as a focal point for the team, providing management and technical leadership.
** Client Engagement & Management - This is a customer facing role in which you will be expected to meet clients between their sites, providing guidance on appropriate services
** Strategic IT Direction - Drive IT Strategy and the IT Roadmap to ensure core system stability and full alignment to the Business plans
This will be a challenging role. The organisation has reached a plateau in terms of experienced technology leadership; however, there is a lot of buy-in from senior stakeholders to allow the right candidate to build a successful team which supports what the business needs. Candidates will have a strong commercial awareness of the latest technology and trends, a genuine passion for IT and posses the ability to modernise IT Systems after some time of neglect.
