About the role:
This is a completely new role, which has just recently been created to be the Group IT Director for a major UK manufacturing company with sites across the U.K.
You'll work closely with all major stakeholders within the business, and through careful planning, implementation and IT strategy you will ensure an improved and robust infrastructure with continued scalability as the business expands.
This is a key senior appointment within the business and a brand-new position which you can make your own. You shall report directly into the CFO, have around 5 direct reports and circa 30 indirect reports.
The position is going to cover a number of UK wide sites and ideally you will be located around the Northwest or Midlands area. The role does require travel and a generous car allowance or car package is on offer and obviously offers hybrid / remote working as you won't be needed on site or in the office every day.
About the company:
This is working for a major manufacturing business that is looking at doubling the size of the IT team over the next 12 months. As a result, they've identified the need for an experienced Group IT Director to provide vision, leadership and management across the IT function which covers infrastructure, helpdesk teams, servers and software solutions across 10 different sites and 1,500 employees.
About you:
Ideally, we are looking to speak with IT Directors with a good track record of IT Delivery within a manufacturing business. So, for example someone who has been in a senior leadership role where you've made strategic decisions of an IT Infrastructure that links to supply chain and ERP systems.
Previous experience with a company that has been scaling up and growing an IT team is preferred.
In terms of your location, it should be around the Northwest (Manchester, Liverpool or Lancs) or alternatively the Midlands (Birmingham) area.
