Your future duties and responsibilities

• As a Lead Security Architect with us you will consult on and design innovative solutions tailored to a deep understanding of our client's needs. You will advise our clients on the architecture of their secure business systems. You'll be the design authority on programmes collaborating across enterprise architectures to produce end-to-end security designs.

• Your knowledge and skills will be used to assist on bids, proposal for works, as well as on implementations and integrations. You will also be expected to represent us at senior stakeholder level and, as a Cyber Security expert, help to guide and influence our clients through their security issues to practical consultative solutions

Required qualifications to be successful in this role

• You will be able to demonstrate significant experience of consulting on, and the delivery of, secure system design and implementation, ideally as a technical security lead. Your all round technical security knowledge should be sound, and you should be able to demonstrate that you understand why security must be part of everything our clients do. You should also be able to demonstrate a complete understanding of the relationship between business purpose, risk and security in the design of your security solutions.

• You should be an effective communicator both written and orally and be adept at persuasively presenting and justifying secure architecture design solutions. You will be used to dealing with multiple client stakeholders both technical and non-technical and able to adapt your approach as required for your audience. Your technical knowledge and understanding should be a given and backed up with appropriate professional qualifications. Knowledge of GDPR is highly desirable, but is not essential.

Please note; in some instances we will expect to see the recruitment process lengthened, with interviewing and hiring taking place at a later date. Please be assured that if you apply for this role, your interest will be registered and we will be in touch soon to discuss your application further.
