Following a recent restructure, our IT team are looking for a Cyber Security Officer.

On a daily basis, you will be supporting the Head of IT Governance to create and deliver a Cyber Security Strategy and Information Security Management Plan to ensure the College Group has robust cyber security systems and processes in place.

You will monitor global threats from organisations such as NCSC and Jisc, analyse them for impact to the college and report your findings, along with planning the work to retain certification in Cyber Essentials.

You will manage Penetration testing via third parties and any remediation plans arising from these tests along with any relevant internal audits.

There is a need for candidates to work with colleagues across all campuses.

The post holder is not expected to be a technical expert on networks, systems or services but they will work with technical DevOps colleagues to identify and plan technical changes relating to security issues.

Skills required are: report writing, planning, excellent written communication and problem solving.

The ideal candidate will have a strong interest in cyber security and may be studying towards a Cyber Security qualification, which the college is happy to support. Learning services are critical to the success of this role.
