The bits we'd like to see from you:

  • The ability to deconstruct a solution / network architecture.
  • Ability to identify and mitigate against threats and vulnerabilities associated with proposed solutions and evaluate the soundness of solutions using industry standard practices (e.g., STRIDE, MITRE)
  • Demonstrate the ability to interpret threats into Risks, using your knowledge and experience to assist the business in assessing likelihood and impact.
  • Effectively communicate technical concepts to both technical and non-technical stakeholders.
  • Skills to produce and articulate Security Designs to all stakeholders within the project and business.
  • Comfortable weighing the risks and benefits of competing Security design options.
  • Comfortable working on multiple challenging projects simultaneously.

The nice to haves:

  • Awareness of industry related security standards such as ISO 27000 series, PCI DSS, COBIT, NIST, OWASP
  • Certifications in Security Management such as CISSP / CISM / CCSP or equivalent
  • Certifications in technical Security domains such as CEH / OSCP or equivalent
  • Experience of Public and or Private cloud environments.

About us

We're on an exciting journey to transform our Group and the way we're shaping finance for good. We're focusing on the future, investing in our technologies, workplaces, and colleagues to make our Group a great place for everyone. Including you.

Our focus is to ensure we're inclusive every day, building an organisation that reflects modern society and celebrates diversity in all its forms.

We want our people to feel that they belong and can be their best, regardless of background, identity or culture.

And it's why we especially welcome applications from under-represented groups.

We're disability confident. So if you'd like reasonable adjustments to be made to our recruitment processes, just let us know.

We also offer a wide-ranging benefits package, which includes:

  • A generous pension contribution of up to 15%
  • An annual bonus award, subject to Group performance
