This is an extremely exciting time to be in a retail style business, an industry which is embracing technology to maximise commercial advantage. As an increasing amount of revenue is being generated through omni-channel customer engagement strategies, the approach within IT must be right.

The company is a highly profitable subsidiary of this established FTSE 250 Group which has doubled its turnover in the past 5 years and has a realistic growth plan to achieve the same again. With the group present in over 500 locations across the country and turning over in excess of £2 billion, the attraction should be clear.

This opportunity has therefore arisen due entirely to growth and future strategy.

You will be able to fully utilise your background in corporate E:commerce solutions to provide strategic direction to this function.

The expanding team consists of 40 specialists covering all standard IT functions with 4 direct reporting managers. You will be working with the Board (CEO and Group CTO) and report directly to the Finance Director.

This opportunity will require a technically excellent IT Director with the ability to span IT and business and fully understand the commercial implications of IT strategy.
