Head of Information Security

  • London
  • £100,000-120,000+Bens

My client, a globally recognised financial services organisation is seeking a hands-on individual to lead GRC in the UK.

In this newly created position, the successful incumbent will lead and continue to build a function focused on ensuring adherence with major standards. You will lead from the front, ensuring wide awareness and communication of InfoSec policies, as well as assisting junior reports in delivering on strategy.  You will ensure a security first culture across the business, driving resilience and working closely with technical teams, including cyber defence and architecture, to ensure security by design.

In order to be successful in your application, you must be an exceptional communicator with proven track record of delivering within financial services environments.  Previous experience with standards such as ISO27001, SOC2 and NIST are must haves. Certifications such as CISSP are a positive but equivalent experience is just as well regarded.

This is an incredibly exciting new role; please get in touch ASAP for initial consideration.

We seek individuals from a diverse talent pool and encourage applicants from underrepresented groups to apply to our vacancies. Our commitment to fair recruitment processes means that we welcome applicants from all backgrounds, regardless of their lived experience or personal characteristics. We also invite applicants who meet most of the listed requirements, even if not all, to apply. If you require any adjustments to the application process, please let us know.
