The Opportunity

This is your chance to defend the UK Parliament from malicious cyber activities. Using state-of-the-art technologies and security tools, you'll lead our Response and Monitoring team at the Cyber Security Operations Centre (CSOC). Guiding this highly-skilled digital team in their protective monitoring and incident-response activities, you'll anticipate and mitigate issues before they arise - and if an incident does occur, you'll keep the team calm and focused as they tackle the problem.

With an interesting array of projects to work on, it will be your job to evaluate the service that we are currently offering (including using penetration testing to identify vulnerabilities) and put measures in place to improve this wherever relevant. As an inspirational leader, you'll also:

see to it that the team are always compliant with our regulatory and legal obligations

lead organisational incident response exercises. This will include coordinating initiatives in both Houses

work in partnership with forensics, threat and vulnerability management and risk teams to deliver a joined-up service

remain aware of geopolitical and domestic activities and technical developments (such as software releases) which could lead to an increased cyber risk

shadow other teams and learn from subject matter experts so that you can develop your technical and business skills.


What You Need

This is a great opportunity to join a friendly and collaborative team who place great value on working together to deliver exceptional results. To be equal to the challenge, you will need to have:

an in-depth knowledge of threat intelligence and threat assessment principles and concepts. This will be underpinned by technology, architecture and risk management capabilities

the ability to use analytical and investigative techniques including intelligence analysis, predictive research, root cause analysis and vulnerability report analysis

exceptional influencing and communication skills

the willingness to support projects that will deliver new applications and technologies that will ultimately be used in both Houses

an expert knowledge of Dynamics 365 and Power Platform
