The Role

You will be working within the Information Security team to ensure that proportionate, relevant and cost-effective controls are designed well and operating effectively, and to monitor and report on the status of information risk.

This role will provide you with a fantastic opportunity to work in a wide ranging and varied environment with duties and responsibilities including areas such as governance and oversight, security reporting, policy maintenance, security assurance, issue management, audit support, client support, incident management and business engagement.

It is important that you can translate the information risk requirements and constraints of the business into security control requirements and specifications, as well as develop metrics for ongoing performance measurement and reporting. The ability to interact with stakeholders of all levels, across all business areas both internally and externally to drive the security agenda and influence thinking is key to success in this role.

We are looking for someone ideally with a minimum of five years’ information security experience or someone who has worked within an equivalent role such as IT Audit or in a Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) role. A relevant security qualification such as CISM, CISSP or CISA and experience within a banking, financial or professional services environment would be beneficial but not essential.

The suitable candidate will also have experience of implementing, managing or working with risk management methodologies and standards, such as ISO 27001, ISO 31000, CIS, ITIL, COBIT, PCI-DSS or NIST, performing risk assessments and business impact analysis.

You will have experience of producing quality documentation, including management information, security dashboards, reports, policies, standards and guidelines.

You will be encouraged to develop yourself as a go-to person in the business by enhancing your information security related expertise.
