About The Role

We have a fantastic opportunity for a Chief Information Security Manager to join our Senior Management Compliance Team.

This is a hands-on role, reporting to the Director of Compliance and Regulation. The post-holder will be instrumental in delivering and maintaining our Information Security Management System (ISMS) to ensure systems and services meet the requirements of ISO27001, PCIDSS, Cyber Essentials Plus and PCI Card Production Standards.

You will be joining an enthusiastic organisation that delivers innovative and market leading payments services that meet the highest security and compliance standards.  We are looking for a motivated individual who can balance risk against business continuity and support service development while maintaining information security assurance.  If you enjoy learning new technologies and converting your knowledge and ideas into a reality, you would be a great fit for us.

You will be recommending appropriate controls to be signed off by the Board, and working with all business units to review, develop and improve security practices with regards to culture, risk, threats, controls, policy, process, and procedures.

We are not looking for full-time attendance at our headquarters, but we do require you to have a presence on site for key meetings and audits. 

We actively encourage professional development through training and certification, backed up by real-world implementation and delivery.
