Part-Time IT Directors

Why Choose a Part-time IT Director?

A Part-time IT Director provides companies that don’t need, can’t afford, or don’t want a Full-time IT Director with access to the technology, experience, and skills they do need to achieve business growth in an ever-competitive digital landscape. 

Rather than make a major financial commitment and take the time to recruit a full-time director, a Part-time or Fractional IT Director can make an immediate impact by sharing strategic knowledge and insights.

A part-time director can help your business set and implement a clear IT strategy by working with managers in just one day a week or a few days a month.

What Does a Part-time IT Director Do? 

A Part-time IT Director offers a wide range of services based on your company’s unique needs. A Part-time IT Director typically works to:

  • Create IT strategies
  • Oversee digital transformation
  • Facilitate custom software development
  • Solve technology issues when working with private equity (PE)
  • Help develop and lead IT teams
  • Navigate risk management and compliance 
  • Integrate systems and reports

How Can a Part-time IT Director Help Grow My Business?

A Part-time IT Director provides you with access to a first-class IT leader when you need one. Your business will have access to a highly qualified professional with proven success, as well as their resources, talent, and years of results in what can be a complex, fast-moving field.

A Part-time IT Director is a low-risk investment for small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) businesses to solve technological challenges. There’s no substantial time commitment necessary, and your Part-time IT Director can help your existing IT staff expand its skillset, modernise operations, and work collaboratively to become more efficient and effective. 

Why Choose a Part-time IT Director from Boardroom Advisors?

Part-time IT Directors from Boardroom Advisors

A Full-time IT Director can be an extremely expensive hire. Many ambitious businesses, despite growing quickly, simply cannot commit to hiring a Full-time IT Director, nor do they necessarily have the working hours to justify the expense.

Hiring an inexperienced full-time employee in this role may lead to greater complications such as compliance issues, outdated software, and exorbitant software or hardware costs.

You may also end up with incomplete software projects, tools that cannot be updated when needed, and a wide array of systems issues.

When you appoint a Part-time IT Director from Boardroom Advisors, you don’t get a  consultant or interim advisor who only talks in industry buzzwords and jargon. You will be adding to your team a proven leader who can talk about technology in plain English and has demonstrated, time and again, that they can generate real results.

Part-time IT advisors know the ins and outs of your industry, will quickly get to understand the unique technological challenges your business faces and can help you build a plan to solve your problems from day one.

For many businesses, working with a Part-time IT Director approximately four days a month, for example, makes it easy and affordable to keep the momentum going, but new technology plans into effect, and have a significant impact on operations without the high overhead associated with hiring and retaining IT talent, particularly custom developers.
