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.
What you’ll be doing
This an exciting time to join us to lead a team of security experts helping manage cyber risk, which is at the top of our agenda. The team will drive our approach to secure customer and colleague information whilst also helping deliver business objectives. Given the importance of the role, there is a high level of key stakeholder engagement across the society including input to governance groups on information security risk as well as being the point of contact for escalations and ad-hoc queries.
You will lead and support a team of engaged and committed security professionals, providing direction on priorities as well as coaching and feedback to support their development.
Working within a fast paced and evolving environment, our team will deliver first line security activities and enhancements, driving real change and business enablement. The Information Security Manager role has oversight of a broad and varied scope across several domains, including support for the secure delivery of our cloud transformation programme.
The range of work you will be managing across your team includes:
- Securing cloud deployments and environments
- Incident Management

- Security testing and remediation
- Vulnerability management
- Threat intelligence monitoring
- Security education and awareness
- Security policy framework
- Controls assurance, including PCI and Swift compliance
- Third party security due diligence
- Subject matter support for projects and change initiatives
What you’ll bring
People are at the heart of what we do, and this is a great opportunity to lead and develop the information security team, you will have a proven track record in leading and developing a diverse team, helping evolve and build their skills and capabilities. You will also have experience of leading teams through a range of compliance and industry standards such as ISO 27001, PCI and NIST.
Relationships matter, you will need to build and maintain a wide range of relationships both technical and non-technical, so being a great communicator will be a key skill – verbal and report writing.
You’ll enjoy seeing projects through to the end and can focus on detail and produce high quality deliverables and reports.
With a large cloud transformation project in flight, we are looking for someone with experience of securing cloud deployments, to help lead the provision of security oversight and application of appropriate and pragmatic controls.
