Dear What Am I Worth,

I am a 40-year-old IT manager for a Dunedin-based publicly listed organisation. I have no staff under me and consequently I perform all roles including maintenance, setup, planning and implementation for a network of 120 PCs running on a LAN/WAN environment over three sites.

We run NetWare 4.11 and the client machines are a combination of Windows 95/98, NT and DOS. We also run a Microsoft Exchange box on an NT Server platform.

I have to use software and hardware skills, troubleshooting and problem-solving skills as well as project management and planning and I have just had staff training added to my duties. We are mid-way through the planning process of a major implementation. I report directly to the financial controller.

I have been IT manager for two years, having been promoted from a systems administrator position that I previously held for four years for the same organisation. Before that I was a computer systems tutor for five years, before which I was a business analyst for a large New Zealand-based organisation for two years.

De Winter International replies: In Dunedin the appropriate range would be $55,000 to $60,000. It sounds as though you are still very hands-on.To develop further in IT management you will need to focus on more strategic issues.
