This is a great opportunity to join a lively first line Security & Governance team that’s grown from two to 12 in the last two years, at a really interesting time.

Main responsibilitiesAs our third party due diligence lead in the team you’ll be visiting the sites of suppliers and potential suppliers across the UK, to check they have adequate security controls in place to protect our data.

You’ll take responsibility for planning and carrying out control review, producing reports and proposing recommendations, to provide assurance to key stakeholders across the organisation that our third parties align with standard InfoSec best practice.

This is a varied role that will involve a high degree of autonomy as you’ll be spending up to 50 per cent of your time travelling the UK to conduct on-site checks, and the rest of your time at our head office in Skipton.
Ideal candidateExcellent time management and organisational skills are key to the success of this role, along with a strong working knowledge of information security controls and experience in a similar function.

You’ll be liaising with stakeholders on a daily basis, so you’ll need to be a confident communicator who’s experienced in leading reviews, with a professional attitude and an ability to articulate complex information to a variety of different audiences in a commercial and risk-based context

Things move quickly in this area of the business and being able to adapt to shifting priorities is essential. We also need someone who can undertake other first line information security responsibilities as and when required, which could include activities such as internal control reviews, security awareness training or enhancing our policy framework.   Ideally you’ll have relevant training or qualifications in ISO/IEC 27001:2013, CISM, CISA, CIS LA, or CISMP.
