A leading online organisation who are going through a period of significant expansion and change are looking to hire a Director of IT Security Operations and another as a Director of Security Engineering, key positions within an international division of an organisation who operate world-renowned software platforms at scale.

Leading a team of IT security managers / department heads, the IT Security Directors will provide guidance to leaders and stakeholders. The teams operate and cover vulnerability management controls, data loss prevention access governance controls, security operations centre/SOC, and Security Engineering.

A thought leader with a strong technical background, the successful candidate will ideally currently be leading managers/technical leads and be an established and well regarded individual, leading teams in a progressive enterprise environment within a fast paced, online, transactional platform environment such as e-commerce, fintech, investment banking, etc.

What we're looking for:

  • Experience leading and developing managers responsible for protecting sensitive information
  • Experienced with designing and operations of detecting control failure, e.g. DLP, vulnerability scanning/management, access governance, security engineering.
  • Knowledge of cloud, agile development, DevOps / DevSecOps and secure SDLC

The IT Security Directors will have a technical background, have progressed through the ranks in to a senior leadership position, and be ready to take on a new challenge. A confident leader, able to liaise and build relationships with various stakeholders, and a keen problem solver is what we're looking for. If this sounds like you, please get in touch.

This is a dynamic, fast paced, collaborative and transparent environment. You will be joining a rapidly expanding organisation that has technology and secure software / systems at the heart of everything that it does.

Remote Working Opportunities / Benefits

The role is open in terms of the location of the successful candidate and you can be based anywhere in the UK or Ireland, the business work in a flexible way and encourage remote/hybrid working. Having said that, culture is very important and so the willingness to travel to an office (Leeds/London/Ireland) on occasion will be required (infrequent and expenses will be paid). Dedicated L&D time is offered to you and all in your teams, as this is a business who believe firmly that their success lies in investing in their people. Along with an excellent salary and five figure bonus, private healthcare along with a comprehensive benefits package is also on offer.
