Main Responsibilities

About the role

As a Security Analyst, you will be responsible for managing day-to-day operations within our Security and Capability team. You will be responsible for handling colleague queries; appropriate prioritisation based on impact and urgency is a key skill for this role.

You will also be required to analyse and gain insight from large, complex datasets, focusing on investigating live issues and opportunities for change, development and improvement within your area of specialism. Attention to detail, and an ability to spot trends, will be crucial to gaining insight into complex, often global questions.

The role may require analysis of issues and opportunities in a wide range of underlying technologies: you will work closely with other team members and teams to understand key concepts in these technologies and inform your analysis. You will be required to articulate the results of your analysis to others in order to inform improvements to processes and systems.

Within the IAM team, you will be responsible for ensuring that access to our systems, servers and databases is appropriate in line with our security policies. You will also be responsible for identifying opportunities to streamline our support processes and enhancements that can be made in our systems.
