Overview of Role

We have a consultancy position available for a Cyber Solutions-Architect to assist in the analysis of and response to Cyber Vulnerabilities.

We supply technical resource to numerous cyber risk interventions. The interventions are requested by the business and must be delivered at pace. They vary in size and complexity and could include the provision of hardware, resources, or services.

You will be required to engage with a wide range of stakeholders including senior client staff, technical experts and representatives from across the business functions, such as Commercial. Therefore, you must be capable of confident, clear, and effective communication at all levels and with stakeholders with differing technical and programmatic backgrounds.

Your role will be to engage with stakeholders to help analyse and visualise complex security problems, identify suitable solutions and then support their delivery. This role is pivotal to the reduction of client's cyber risk in a high-tempo and highly agile environment.

You will need excellent analytical skills as evidenced by your career to date, as this will assist in the translation of challenging technical issues for stakeholders who may not be technical experts.

You will be required to liaise with other business functions in the development of business cases and supporting the procurement processes, therefore a foundation of financial and commercial awareness is beneficial.
