With an award-winning digital platform in place, they are now looking to grow their Information Security function in line with their size.

They are looking to add a Security Architect to act as the focal point for security architecture for a broad scope of projects, working closely with the solution architects and developers on their new technology platform. The successful candidate will have to ensure that the overall architecture direction of the firm's new platform guarantees confidentiality, integrity and availability of data.

  • Managing and developing the security architecture for a broad scope of projects

  • Defining the principles, guidelines, standards and solution patterns which will ensure that solutions decisions are constantly aligned with the firm's architecture vision

  • Reviewing architecture artefacts before their submission to TDA to guarantee their appropriateness

  • Developing and managing Secure Design Patterns and Reference Architectures, which in turn feed into the firm's long-term security strategy

The ideal candidate for this position will have previous experience in developing security designs and architectural artefacts which meet business needs, experience in working within AWS or AZURE as well as a proven track record in working with security technologies.

The client would consider a contractor for this role in the interim, or someone looking at a contract to perm. Salary for this position is up to £110,000.
