Our Role
In this challenging role, you'll operate as a security expert in application development, database design, network and/or platform efforts, ensuring project teams comply with internal policies, industry regulations and best practice. You'll develop the business, information and technical artefacts that constitute the enterprise information security architect and solutions.
To help deliver business success, you'll work collaboratively with our experienced enterprise architects, other functional areas and security specialists to ensure adequate security solutions are in place throughout all IT systems and platforms, to sufficiently mitigate identified risks, and meet business goals and regulatory requirements.
Additionally, you'll be responsible for: contributing to the alignment of security governance with EA governance and project and portfolio management (PPM); researching, designing and advocating new technologies, architecture and security products, and evaluating and developing secure solutions that are based on approved security architectures and business need; communicating security risks and solutions to business partners and IT colleagues.

In this expert/lead technical role, you'll be required to take on project management or operate as a SME in your field when required.  You'll also be comfortable interacting with employees at all levels of the organisation, and when engaging with external vendors.
Other positives would include: a degree in Computer Science, Information Systems or similar field, or suitably qualified by experience; an understanding of the energy / utilities sector, and the risks/threats to our industry, control systems, smart grid and metering, network, consumer technologies and customer data; expert knowledge of security-specific architecture methodology (e.g. SABSA) and of security issues, techniques and implications across all existing computer platforms; strong analytical skills, business insight, technical acuity and the ability to think, communicate and write at various level of abstraction.
