Cyber Security Analyst

We're hiring a Cyber Security Analyst to join our Information Security team to continue the development of our security roadmap, run internal training campaigns, maintain/monitor security tooling, manage DSAR requests and prevent cyber exploits and attacks.

This is a chance to add more highly skilled commercial experience to the security team by adding your experience in cyber security, such as ethical hacking, pen testing, Tooling, DevSecOps and phishing campaigns. All to ensure the security of the omni-channel Footasylum business.

We've been going through a digital transformation, changing how we deliver value to our business. A big part of this change is fostering a culture of being open and honest, collaborating, having fun and enabling psychological safety. We want to create a place for teams to do their best work, and you'll have the opportunity to influence our decisions, help define standards across the teams and contribute to a healthy and happy working environment.

The Team
The Information Security team has implemented a number of key initiatives, processes and platforms this year. We work closely with 3rd party suppliers to ensure we have the right tools to protect the Footasylum business and our customers data. The team have been running initiatives for training staff with phishing campaigns and data security.

Here are some of the things the team has been working on recently, to give you an idea of the kinds of things you will be doing:

  • Implementing an enterprise SIEM and working with a SOC,
  • Improving data governance standards,
  • Working with development teams for code analysis and pen testing,
  • Creating phishing campaigns specific to the current climate and business,
  • Implementing Mobile Device Management,
  • Security of APIs and Bot Detection,
  • Implementing end point protection and policies.


There are times when you will be working with other areas of the business to understand the challenges they face. The success of the role heavily relies on communication and collaboration across multiple areas of the business. You will have the full support of the business to do the right thing with autonomy, mastery and purpose.

Above everything else, you will have the opportunity to influence our decisions, help define standards across the teams and contribute to a healthy and happy working environment.

About You
Within your current organisation, you love being part of a team and coming up with new ideas and initiatives. Your organised and methodical when it comes to the detail in tasks. You support those around you, you are constantly learning and work in a kind, considerate and collaborative manner with a keen interest in new ways of working.

The ideal candidate would have strong experience of cyber security in online retail, seeing how a fast-paced changing environment can adapt and adhere to best security practices and processes. You will have experience of all the tools required such as a SIEM, End Point Protection, Data Governance, WAF's, Network Firewalls, Vulnerability Management and Pen Testing. You will also bring a new set of skills such as ethical hacking.

You see the value in compliance and regulations but not in a box ticking exercise way. These values must mean something to you and that passion is seen to those around you. Everyone knows you across your business. You are happy with presenting your findings and ideas to senior level just as much as coaching juniors who are new to the cyber security role.

Salary & Benefits
We are offering a salary of up to GBP40,000 for the right person, which we assess based on your own experiences, technical skills and against the principles of our department and our ways of working. You'll also get access to our 'FA Presents' company benefits platform, 25 days holiday and pension as standard, and use of our training budget to help you develop your skills.

We know that this will help us build useful and accessible things which our customers will love. This is great news for our business.

Recruitment Process
We review applications on an individual basis, and if we feel you would be a good fit we'll invite you to meet with a few members of the Footasylum team for an informal chat about the role over Teams, and to see if we're a good fit for you. You will hear from us the same day on whether we would like to bring you back to meet the team for a follow up interview where we'll give you a chance to show us how you think and what your approach to a take-home scenario is.

With the COVID-19 situation our teams are all working remotely, adjusting to this new way of working as best we can - and as such we'll help make the interview process as clear and stress-free as possible, giving you the same opportunity as if we were meeting face to face...... click apply for full job details
