Career Path – Management

Career Path for Management Roles

There are three job descriptions in the management career path for our IT department.  The entry level position is Team Leader.  The Team Leader role has day to day operational responsibility for the services delivered by their team.  The role also has tactical responsibility for project resourcing and reports to the Director of Information Technology.  The Associate Director works at the tactical and strategic level and acts in the Director’s absence.  The Director is the final role in this career path.  Ideally, the Director works at the tactical and strategic levels and reports to the Vice President/Vice Chancellor level.
