Who we are

At Selwood Housing Group, we care about improving homes and communities. That’s our mission. So providing quality affordable housing is an important part of what we do.

What you’ll do here

As Information and security manager you’ll provide a proactive information management and ICT security service to our ICT team and the wider organisation. In this vital role, you’ll be accountable for data protection, threat identification and defence, risk management and mitigation, with an emphasis on helping us to use our information effectively to provide value to our customers. As well as taking responsibility for strategy, policy and assurance plans, and for developing our information architecture, you’ll lend your considerable knowledge to the development of related training. With a strong focus on solutions, you’ll make sure security systems and processes don’t get in the way of day to day business. Keeping a keen eye on the latest techniques, methods and trends, you’ll actively seek out new opportunities and ways to add real value to the Group through how we secure, manage and use our information.

Who you are

To join us you’ll need great enthusiasm, meticulous attention to detail and a collaborative, customer focussed approach. Naturally, you will bring to the role a host of relevant skills, knowledge and experience. Ideally, you will have a proven track record in an IT security management role, involving deployment or management of complex solutions. Experience of leading information strategy for an organisation will also be an advantage. We would prefer you to have a proven flair for influencing teams, leading investigations, and contributing to the formation of strategy and processes.
