  • Assist in the measurement and reporting of network infrastructure configuration posture and adherence to best practice.
  • Support the development of our security incident playbooks.

What skills, knowledge and experience are essential for this role? We'll assess these when we look at your application.

  • Significant experience working in an enterprise IT department.
  • Foundational understanding of modern enterprise networking concepts and technologies.
  • Experience in understanding zero trust security concepts and defence in depth strategies.
  • A good Understanding of any cyber security frameworks, for example NIST CSF, NCSC CAF or CIS Critical Security Controls.
  • Professional qualification or equivalent experience relating to network security, cyber security, networking, ITSM or project management.
  • Any experience using Splunk, Jira, ServiceNow or SIEM tools.

Details. Wages. Perks.
