Tunstall Healthcare (UK) Ltd

We are currently recruiting for a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), reporting to the Chief Technology Officer, to be responsible for ensuring the security, privacy, and compliance of Tunstall’s operations on a global scale.

But there’s more to this than just the ‘day job’. As a Group we’re embarking on an exciting period of transformation. We want to fundamentally transform the systems, processes, people, and technology across our business, to achieve measurable and sustainable improvements. You’ll play a vital part in contributing to this transformation, helping to shape information and cyber security at Tunstall globally.

This role could work on a hybrid basis from any of our main hubs - Manchester city centre, Malmo, or Madrid.

What will you be doing in this role?

As our CISO, you will safeguard the company’s internal infrastructure, but also influence and contribute to the security and resilience of our operations, assets, and reputation. This role is not just the shaping of strategy but the execution and hands-on delivery of this strategy. This is a very visible role, and you will have a chance to make a real difference to Tunstall and our all-important customers. You will be responsible for driving security change and transformation across Tunstall, by helping to create and build a comprehensive cyber security and information security strategy that aligns with business objectives and play a pivotal role in ensuring the security of our SaaS products.

The identification, assessment, and prioritisation of security risks associated with both internal and external factors in line with business objectives and ensuring the compliance with all relevant laws and regulations related to security, including GDPR (and other relevant data protection regulations), is vital to the success of this role.

You will lead, inspire, and mentor the security and compliance teams globally, fostering a culture of continuous improvement, innovation, and excellence, as well as promoting security awareness throughout Tunstall, upskilling, and educating colleagues as required.

The Ideal candidate:

To be successful in this role you will have leadership experience in cyber and information security from a brownfield site, with an in-depth understanding of all the key cyber and information security domains. You will have experience of liaising with, and influencing senior stakeholders around key business objectives, most effective approach, and allocation of budgets, with a proven track record of driving security change and transformation. We are a cost-conscious business, so the ability to work to a budget, and deliver return on investment (ROI) through the effective and efficient utilisation of security tooling and available resources is vital to success.

You will be able to demonstrate previous success in shaping, building, executing, and implementing a comprehensive international cyber security and information security strategy. You will be pragmatic, with a commercial approach, and significant experience of reviewing and assessing differing approaches and security tools, able to demonstrate clear rationale behind your decisions.

With excellent communication skills, both verbal and written, you will have the ability to convey and ensure an understanding of complex messages to colleagues at all levels. As a proven and collaborative leader, with a strong teamwork ethic, and can-do attitude, you will be happy to be both strategic and hands on, used to working in a fast-moving organisation, able to create structure and clarity from ambiguity.

In addition, you will have a strong knowledge of software as a service (SaaS) products and on-premise technical solutions, with experience of delivering security solutions for SaaS products. Experience with a hardware provider / manufacturer as well would be highly desirable.
