Information Services and Security have a vital role to play in a crucial national mission. We're here to enable the organisation to deliver through the use of technology. As AWE transforms itself to meet the needs of the UK's next-generation nuclear deterrent, we need to adapt to deliver data-driven decision making, flexible and future-proofed IT services, adaptable cyber security, support to a multi-billion Pound building programme, and many more.

The scale might be daunting to some, but you'll find it stimulating. We've got a long journey that we've only just started and we're looking for motivated people who can take us in the right direction. Your role will contribute directly to that shared mission. We won't deceive you, in some areas we're starting from a low base, but within ten years this organisation will look very different, and you can help make that happen. This is a role where you'll contribute to a legacy of national security for decades to come. So come and join us.

We are recruiting for a Cyber Security Analyst to conduct the monitoring of Cyber Security systems; data collation, threat hunting and incident response.

What we do at AWE is unique and so are our threats. The Cyber SOC monitor both traditional networks and cloud environments and the SOC benefits from having a wide range of tooling available to the analysts.

Analysts within the SOC have the ability to help grow and shape what we monitor and how we respond to threat. We offer and encourage self-development to ensure our analysts remain knowledgeable and have the skills in order to maintain our mission.

We are looking for an experienced Cyber Security/Incident Response Analyst with a passion for Cyber Security.
