An opportunity has arisen with my client based in Stoke-on-Trent for a Head of IT & Change who has previous experience of working in a joint-venture or Lean start up organisation previously. The ideal candidate for this role will be a good all-rounder. Someone who is able to deal with senior managers and stakeholders across the board and won't have the 'wool pulled over their eyes'. If you see yourself as a no nonsense manager then I would keep reading this ad. You'd be expected to take ownership of the organisations IT systems, infrastructure, applications, supplier management, information governance and change management. Hence the need for a good all-rounder. To have the relevant experience it is likely, but not an absolute deal breaker, that you would come from a Senior Leadership position, perhaps Head of IT/Head of Change/Programme Director. It would also be beneficial to have a project management background. Additionally, experience around delivering successful IT strategy and roadmap delivery is imperative for this position. You will be responsible for designing, maintaining and reporting against end-to-end change processes for the business The organisation in question is fairly new, so candidates who have experience of working in a chaotic/unstructured environment would be advantageous. You will manage a team of 10 direct reports as well as having regular effective communication with vendors Executive members and various IT teams. So if you are still reading this, are passionate across the whole of IT and don't mind getting your hands dirty, as well as delivering on some exciting change and transformation projects coming up, this could be just the challenge for you!
