You'll need a strong drive and willingness for learning and growth. You will be in a rapidly evolving environment, that will bring new challenges and opportunities for growth on a regular basis and be empowered to develop and explore your unique passions in Cyber Security.

As well as being the face of InfoSec to the rest of the business, you will address security issues as an enabler, not a blocker, by working proactively with all teams and baking security into our Tech. This also means being able to articulate the "why" of what we do to technical and non-technical colleagues. You will contribute to establishing a security culture throughout the business, and enjoy autonomy and flexibility to experiment on ideas that could help improve InfoSec as a whole.

Responsibilities include:
  • Monitor our networks to spot both active and emerging threats
  • Monitor our endpoints to combat malicious activity
  • Identify anomalous behaviour and triage incidents and alerts accordingly
  • Work directly with Senior Cyber Security Analysts to investigate issues and escalate incidents
  • Facilitate Vulnerability Management
  • Participate in incident response, seeing security incidents through their full lifecycle
  • Help us to develop and tune our security tools to make our SOC more efficient
  • Research, evaluate and assess emerging cybersecurity threats, trends, tools and capabilities
