Included Services
Work Conducted:
Primarily off site
Typical Time Frame:
2+ Days per month (depending upon business size and objectives)

Our Virtual IT Director service is identical to our Fractional IT Director service, with the exception that the work is fulfilled almost exclusively remotely. We appreciate that not all businesses need their IT Director on site and can benefit of the flexibility of having this operated remotely.

The purpose of the Virtual IT Director is to immerse themselves in your business, taking full reign of your IT Strategy and everything that comes with this. You can find a detailed breakdown of the types of work undertaken by one of our Associates on the table to your left.

Businesses who might opt for the Virtual rather than Fractional IT Director service would be those who need their Associate on demand throughout the month, as opposed to requiring their presence on specific days with the Virtual IT Director service being more flexible in that respect.

On-going management and ownership of your IT Strategy and projects.

Looking for a Virtual IT Director, CTO, or CIO?

Our Associates are industry leading IT professionals with experience at the most senior level in businesses throughout the UK and US who can work with your business on a fully flexible basis to achieve your IT and technology goals.

The Benefits of a Virtual IT Director

Whether you hire one of our Associates on a Fractional or Virtual basis, you'll typically benefit most from our services if;

  • You don't have a requirement for a full time IT Director, CTO or CIO.
  • You have a specific IT project that requires a senior level of experience.
  • Your existing team would benefit from oversight and guidance.
  • You may have lost or be in the process of losing an existing IT Director, CTO or CIO and want to ensure projects are still taken care of in their absence.

Our Virtual IT Director service offers further benefits if;

  • You’d benefit more from a remote IT Director than someone who is on site - perhaps you’re an international/global business or have multiple office locations.
  • You value flexibility and want to use your IT Directors time split throughout the week, rather than on specific days as is the case for a Fractional IT Director who visits your site.*
  • You prefer greener options; by offering a virtual service we minimise the need for travel.

*By opting for a Virtual IT Director, our Associates are still happy to visit your sites in person where required, but the bulk of their work will be carried out remotely.

We appreciate there are numerous different reasons as to why you might be looking for a Virtual IT Director, take a look at our case studies to see some examples of how we've worked in other businesses.

Our Associates are strategically positioned all over the UK and US to ensure that we can accommodate for clients regardless of their location.
