Name: Steve Arnold
Are you an outgoing Information Security professional with a keen interest in Data Privacy and Risk/Compliance? One of our clients is looking for an Information Security Lead to come and help ensure they are compliant with ISO27001 as well as ensuring all of theirs, and their client’s Data is handled securely.

The company itself is an exciting start up, fresh off a round of investment and are looking to grow their team internally, with the Information Security Lead being one of their highest priorities. 

A lot of companies talk about culture, but these guys live and breathe it, with a flat structure across the business, everyone is considered an equal (no ivory towers here!) and love to bring outgoing and collaborative people into their team.

ED&I is a huge thing for them also (it’s literally what they do, but we’ll get onto that when I speak to you!).

The nitty gritty stuff? A bit like this…
  • Take responsibility for their Information Security, Data Privacy and Compliance across the business
  • Review, update and maintain the ISMS
  • Create and update the Risk Register as well as create a strategy to help achieve ISO27001 compliance
  • Work closely with clients to ensure completion of InfoSec requests 
  • Create reports for review during governance meetings
  • Communicate Information Security best-practice across the business to create InfoSec awareness throughout
  • Work closely with other internal teams and stakeholders and be pragmatic in your approach

This role is going to best suit someone who is used to working in a small, but growing, environment, someone who enjoys communicating with others and collaborating with the wider organisation. Someone who is not afraid to get their hands dirty and roll up their sleeves to lead from the front and generally be the ‘go-to’ for all things InfoSec.

There are plenty of benefits on offer also, with wellbeing allowances, summer retreats, 31+ days annual leave, bonus structure and more as part of the package.

Base salary for the role will be £70,000 and would require the successful person to be in the office twice a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays) in Central London. 

If it sounds like it may be of interest, get in touch and we can discuss further.
