Job Details

At GCHQ, diversity and inclusion are critical to our mission. To protect the UK, we need a truly diverse workforce that reflects the society we serve. This includes diversity in every sense of the word: those with different backgrounds, ethnicities, gender identities, sexual orientations, ways of thinking and those with disabilities or neurodiverse conditions. We therefore welcome and encourage applications from everyone, including those from groups that are under-represented in our workforce.

Short Summary of role

This is a unique opportunity to shape the partnership strategy for the UK's national cyber security campaign - Cyber Aware. The Cyber Aware campaign forms part of a wider set of initiatives being delivered across government to help keep individuals and businesses more secure online.

You will identify and leverage relationships with influential brands and organisations across the public and private sectors, working closely with the NCSC Engagement team to ensure the campaign partner strategy delivers against the wider NCSC citizen strategy. You will identify partnership opportunities, initiate discussions, and negotiate and develop marketing plans to help deliver Cyber Aware messages through trusted and credible voices - to both consumers and small businesses. Adept at influencing and negotiating, you will establish a network of partners that will help drive behaviour change in cyber security.
