Head of IT / IT Director - £75,000 - £80,000 - Lichfield

IT Manager, IT Director, IT Security, infrastructure, Head of IT, Applications, Cyber, Capex, Opex

I am currently working with a client based near Lichfield who are looking for a Head of IT to come on board and take full ownership of the IT division and long-term strategy. This will be managing a small team of 10 - 15 and being able to lead from the front. Whilst I wouldn't call this a "hands on" position you need to have a very good technical understanding in order to muck in when required and work closely with the team.

The IT division currently has been rather under loved for several years so there are many quick wins that can be made early on whilst working closely with senior leadership to put in a roadmap for IT moving forward.

Required experience:

  • Experience working in a Head of IT or IT Director position previously.
  • Strong all round technical understanding, from basic Microsoft systems, bespoke application suits and cyber security.
  • Experience looking after CAPEX and OPEX.
  • Ability to put together strategic roadmaps for IT.
  • Willingness to travel when required (UK only)

This is a great opportunity with potential to progress into a global CIO position in the near future. If you have the required skills and you would be interested in finding out more, please apply here!
