Are you looking for your next opportunity in the Cyber and Information Security industry?

Do you want to work with a leading organisation specialising in the sector?

I’m currently working with my client, an internationally acclaimed technology consulting firm, to help them find a number of Technical Security Consultants due to continued growth and demand from their impressive customer base, particularly in the Financial Services sector.

In this role, you will assist clients in clearly understanding their exposure to security threats/risks, advise on best-in-class approaches and aid them in implementing pragmatic and cost effective controls. As this is such a customer-facing position, we’re looking for individuals that not only have the career background in the security world, but also great interpersonal skills.

What would your responsibilities be?

  • Understanding business and information risk context (typical business drivers, cyber security threats and implementation challenges) of our customers
  • Judge risk at a technical and business process level and clearly articulate both verbally and in writing to key stakeholders
  • Reviewing effectiveness of controls (in relation to known controls frameworks as appropriate) and proposing proportionate security improvements
  • Analysing and researching security technologies to support the development of innovative solutions
  • Assessing risk at the business function or process level
  • Translating proficiently framework controls into business requirements in straightforward situations
  • Leading client interviews or small investigations to determine business impact
  • Conducting site security visits and environmental security assessments
  • Applying standard security frameworks or relevant approaches
  • Leading the creation of risk assessment/reports
  • Working with account teams to identify new opportunities for work and support the production of quality proposals

What do we need to see from you?

  • Your ability to articulate and pitch security advice, often at a technical level, directly to key customer stakeholders
  • Excellent interpersonal skills as well as both written and verbal communication and presentation skills
  • Ability to prioritise workload, work well under pressure and concurrently manage both customer and internal expectations
  • Experience working within Financial Services, ideally banking or insurance
  • Your involvement in development of Security policy and security standards
  • Knowledge of risk assessment methodologies
  • Knowledge of control frameworks such as NIST and ISO27001
  • Knowledge of operational resilience
  • Knowledge of 3rd party security assurance
If all of this sounds of interest to you, please apply with your CV and I will contact you to discuss further.
At this time, we cannot consider candidates who require visa sponsorship.
