IT / ICT Management

My contract at World First in 2008 provided some interesting challenges that let to my eventual appointment to the role of Head of ICT, leading a team of 10 for 2 years.

I faced a number of challenges in this role:-

  • When I took over my first task was to manage out a poorly performing staff member, following though disciplinary processes whilst trying to keep departmental moral up.
  • Throughout my time as head of ICT I had to deal with the conflict that results from a department staffed by many nationalities, experience levels and the egos that exist from employing highly intelligent staff.
  • I followed a process of allowing "controlled innovation".

Some quotes from past reviews whilst permanently employed:-

Very good overall knowledge of our IT (and IT generally)
Good balance of short term work and long term consideration of what we need to do
You have managed the team well and your knowledge of all IT/Business issues if very good

Happy to work as an Employee, Consultant, Contractor / Self Employed or via Limited Company
