We offer a wide range of homes, for rent, part ownership or purchase. By doing so, we build more than homes – we build communities.

You will devise and implement a roadmap for Information Security, in conjunction with Architecture, Operations and other relevant stakeholders. You will be responsible for the Information Security incident response process, working collaboratively with the security analyst to help Catalyst effectively contain, respond, and resolve any security incidents and breaches.

With experience of delivering security improvement projects and developing security policies, standards and procedures, you are enthusiastic and passionate about all things information security.
