About the role

It’s no secret that our intellectual property is critical to our success, but how do we keep it from the prying eyes of those with malicious or criminal intent?

We use pragmatic approaches as part of our transformation of cyber security to deliver business resilience and better manage potential disruption.

You will play a part in designing the technology solutions that keep us at the top of our game, refining our processes, stressing our systems and making sure we’re well-honed.  You will deliver activities to support IT security projects, resolve day-to-day IT security problems, respond to incidents, manage security testing and provide good practice guidance to projects and business units.  You will have the chance to spend time with a selection of the following teams:

  • Cyber Defence Operations

  • Cyber Threat Operations

  • Offensive Security

  • Cyber Security Architecture & Engineering

  • Cyber Risk & Compliance
