This role is all about vision, strategy and building something special. You'll be aligned to a specific function within the business but will work with multiple other business units to implement new processes, overcome high profile challenges and ensure that stakeholders are truly bought into your ideas and ways of working.

The function you'll be working within is still quite "young" per say, meaning that you'll be able to build and shape this as you see fit. The challenges and problems you work with will be tailored to your level of experience - the business want you to get some quick wins under your belt from the offset.

About You

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 don't have a lot of Security experience you'll need to have a proven track record within Development, Infrastructure or a similar discipline.

As mentioned above, you'll be working within a relatively new function, meaning that you'll have to be extremely proactive and a real "self-starter". Whilst you'll receive a lot of guidance and training, you need to be able to think on your feet, question the norm and be able to work independently.

Must haves are as follows:

* Financial Services/Investment Experience
* Exceptionally good stakeholder management skills
* Design and delivery experience within Security, Development or Infrastructure


About the Company

My client's office is based in very centre of Edinburgh with various modes or transport and a short walk from either train station making it applicable to people out-with Edinburgh. It's a truly exciting time to join the business as they go through a large period of transformation and change.
