Fractional IT Director

The fractional IT Director can transform an IT function from a drain to a source of value.

We have every confi­dence that our well-versed IT Directors will make a transformational impact on your business.

We use the term fractional IT Director to mean a role focused on:

  • Ensuring technology, teams and suppliers are well selected and properly managed.
  • Driving efficient and effective use of technology throughout the business.
  • Delivery of IT services to underpin and improve the business.
  • Management and oversight of team and suppliers, ensuring best practice and appropriate cyber-security and risk management.

An elite but affordable IT Director

An IT Director supervises technology, teams and suppliers. They focus on delivery of IT services to support and improve a company. The “fractional” part simply means “part-time.”

Hiring a full-time IT Director can be a lengthy and expensive process. A Freeman Clarke fractional IT Director, however, saves you both time and money. We have our own selection process, so you don’t expend resources on a lengthy search. Our standards are extremely high: only 1% of initial applicants become a part of our team, so our IT Directors are the absolute best in the market. Our exclusive focus on the mid-market means a good fit for your own mid-market company.

Why fractional?

Because some businesses have smaller, more tactical requirements. They need the knowledge and experience of an IT Director, but there is no call for a full-time position. A fractional IT Director fulfills that role at a sustainable price.

 

A unique combination of leadership and teamwork

Freeman Clarke IT Directors enjoy a unique combination of business and technical know-how. They are part of our own team as well, communicating regularly with other technology leaders to share knowledge. This unique combination of teamwork and superior skills is why we have delivered more than 740 IT strategies to leading companies in the UK and US!

Experience and clarity

IT Directors with decades of experience are ready to get involved in the most complex and demanding business environments. They will provide clarity to IT department and teams and ensure superior performance. The fractional model means you have the benefit of lower overhead, but with the depth of knowledge of an experienced IT Director.

Defining IT leadership roles

Across the industry, the terms fractional IT Director, CIO (Chief Information Officer), and CTO (Chief Technology Officer) are often used interchangeably and inconsistently defined. The fractional IT Director can transform an IT function from a drain to a source of value.
