Job Introduction

Are you passionate about security? Do you want to help drive an organisation forward with a pragmatic outlook that focuses on reward as well as risk? If this sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you. We're looking for a new Information Security Manager to help lead a team in the delivery of our security programme.

Main Responsibilities

Managing cyber risk is at the top of our agenda and our approach to security is to protect customer and colleague information in the right way whilst at the same time enabling business objectives and direction.

Our team provides the delivery of first line security activities, supporting the implementation and enhancement of a comprehensive information security framework. Our programme of work is varied and provides challenge and opportunities. The Information Manager role has a broad scope and a great level of exposure to stakeholders across the Society.

The scope of work you will be managing includes:
  • Security testing and remediation

  • Subject matter support for projects and change initiatives
  • Security support for subsidiaries

Ideal Candidate

This is a brilliant opportunity which will combine your security and people skills. In this role your approach and leadership of the team is just as important as your technical experience. Your security experience will extend to industry standards such as ISO 27001, PCI and NIST. You're hard working, excited by change and can see the bigger picture.

We're looking for someone who can manage a broad programme of work, with the ability to assess risk and provide judgement when needed. You will be able to build and maintain trusted relationships, instilling confidence in your stakeholders and positively influencing colleagues to help embed a culture of security awareness.

We are looking for someone who adopts a pragmatic approach to managing information security risk, who is able to design and recommend appropriate controls to achieve our security vision whilst at the same time enabling our strategic objectives.

You'll enjoy seeing projects through to the end and have the ability to focus on detail and produce high quality deliverables and reports.

The successful candidate will also hold a relevant degree or professional security qualification (such as CISM or CISSP).
