This is an extremely interesting and varied role that will see you spearhead all aspects of security operations across the business, working with internal and external teams to build out an in-house SOC whilst developing wider operational security functions. You'll have a significant amount of trust placed in you to ensure that this function is a success and that the decisions you make will truly benefit the business.
Whilst there's also an element of Line Management in this role, you'll only have a handful of direct reports. This ensures that you're still able to focus on the bigger picture and strategic side of things whilst steering and guiding your team in the right way.
I'm on the lookout for an experienced security professional or someone who has a real passion for security - either or are totally valid. If you're not from a pure Security background, you'll need to have a lot of Service and/or Project Management experience. It'd be a real plus if you've managed 3rd party suppliers before as you'll be leading a function who are highly reliant on external support at present.
Whilst my client does have a specific set of tools & technologies that they currently work with, this is a leadership role so you don't have to have experience using these. In saying this, it wouldn't hurt if you've worked within a hands-on role in the past.
Must haves are as follows:
* Financial Services/Investment Experience
* Exceptionally good stakeholder management skills
* A real passion for security and the desire to continually develop and learn
Being CISSP/ITIL certified would be a bonus but this isn't essential as personality and cultural fit is absolutely key.
