What does an IT Manager do?

IT Managers oversee an organisation’s IT department, managing IT staff, network security, and daily operations. As an IT Manager you’ll be analysing the information technology needs of the organisation, then (working within a budget) procure and install the hardware, software, and cloud systems to meet those needs.

IT Managers liaise with senior management about resourcing and budgets — planning IT systems to address business growth and operational changes. They also oversee contracts relating to network operations and cybersecurity.
