Virtual IT Director
The size of your organisation and sometimes the nature of your business, will determine whether you will need a senior management figure that is seen as Head of IT. entrustIT have several consultants that perform the role of IT Director or IT Manager for our clients. These assignments are typically part-time and are for one or two days per week. The IT Director/CIO will work at board and senior management level within your business, so as to understand your company plans and help to build a strategy for IT if none exists. He or she will then help to cost the strategy and remain to assist with its implementation if needed.
Occasionally large clients use us for interim IT Director assignments, which allows them time to hire a full-time recruit.
Virtual IT Manager
The IT manager uses your IT strategy to develop an IT roadmap. He or she will take on the operational responsibility for delivery until you no longer need them or you recruit someone permanent. The IT manager will give direction to your suppliers, deal with service escalations, priority setting and lead any projects or change programmes. He or she will typically handle HR for your IT staff and report directly to your IT Director.
