When it comes to your IT infrastructure, we understand that only the best support will do. Whether you are recruiting an IT manager in-house or using an outsourced IT company like us, you should have access to the assistance and advice you need to successfully support the technology that is often the beating heart of a business. The role of an IT manager is a particularly important one for business owners looking to deliver results through their IT infrastructure.

When recruiting an IT manager in-house however, the cost alone – the average salary for an experienced IT manager is between £30,000 and £40,000 per annum – makes it an investment for the most profitable businesses. Knowing what to expect from the IT manager you hire is therefore important. Read on to discover more about what an IT manager should be delivering to your business.

What should your IT manager do for you?

Whether you want your IT manager to specialise or be a ‘jack of all trades’ to support the infrastructure that is essential to your business, the role of an IT manager is no doubt varied. Most IT managers have to deliver support across several areas including project management, IT compliance, IT security, website maintenance, device management and server administration. The exact duties of an IT manager tend to differ from company to company depending on the unique requirements of the business recruiting them.

In addition to having varying duties and responsibilities in the maintenance of your existing devices, network and wider infrastructure, your IT manager should play an instrumental role in developing your infrastructure for better performance. New technologies, systems and processes come to light every day in the IT world. Your IT manager should provide direct access to exploiting such developments within your company.
