IT Management

Image

Individuals with the vision to shape IT policies and deliver direction to bring true value to the business. Gravitas to lead and to motivate. Individuals to control costs and mitigate risk. The ability to make critical decisions and ultimately take responsibility. Negotiators, persuaders, custodians of an organisation’s technology capability.

You may need a senior individual to act in a multi-faceted role to be responsible for your entire IT function and to look after infrastructure, software development, out-sourcing, budgets and staffing. If you are running a significant facility you may have or need several dedicated departmental heads. Typically, on the applications side, these will be individuals with a deep understanding of your vertical market and associated business applications, together with a strong awareness of architectural development methods and the SDLC. On the operational / infrastructure side, departmental heads will be adept at looking after large 24/7 production environments, security, disaster recovery and data management.

Q4 2020: Market trends for IT Management

The availability of IT Managers with experience in managing IT facilities for SME businesses is good at this time. Unfortunately given the current economic climate, many very able and qualified ‘middle management’ IT professionals within large scale organisations have suffered redundancy.

In terms of salaries and day rates, there is no upward pressure on remuneration levels. Clearly the scale of an organisation’s IT department; the size of user base and complexity of the IT ecosystem will have a significant bearing on renumeration levels.
