Job Description

A successful Cyber Security and Consulting business, with offices in Newcastle, is looking to grow their GRC team and take on additional driven and experienced GRC and security professionals, with experience of ISO27001 and GDPR, to meet a demanding pipeline of work over the coming months and years.

Working as part of a growing specialist team, you will travel extensively in your role to various corporate, government and public sector clients, who already engage the business for networking and security consultancy needs, to help prepare them and deliver to them GDPR, ISO 27001, ISO 9001, BCP 22301, ISO38500.

The successful candidate will have demonstrable experience in preparing and delivering GRC to businesses. They will be consultative individuals, keen to listen, analyse, assess and report on information security and data protection issues to ensure that the client's cyber-resilience is second to none.

They may have certification in GDPR or ISO27001 or Lead Auditor or Practitioner certification for ISO27001 / 9001 / 22301 or 38500
The person will have impeccable client engagement experience delivering this either internally for a large business or to a range of businesses and will demonstrate a customer centric approach to their work.
Due to the nature of some of the clients, you will also be required to undertake DBS or similar security vetting.

Experience delivering the above from an internal perspective or through a mixture of consultancy and in-house roles is preferred.

As well as travel to various client sites, the incumbent should also be willing to travel between the other offices in Gloucester and Scotland, as occasionally required. A company car and fuel card is provided for this role and a basic salary of £50,000 - £70,000, depending on the skills and experience you bring to the role, plus additional benefits. The business also supports the continued training and development of their employees and as such training towards further certifications is also possible.

This is an excellent opportunity to join a very successful and growing business, that can offer an interesting pipeline of work. Although reporting to the Head of GRC, you will be responsible for managing your own workload/diary and will enjoy a good level of autonomy in your role.
