Our client are experts in defence, aerospace, security and related markets. We draw on our extensive technical knowledge and intellectual property to provide the know-how and support to solve some of the world's most challenging problems. Our people make the critical difference to customers by providing unique approaches to problem solving. Why don't you join some of the world's finest scientific and technical minds and help us make tomorrow work today?

Job Description:

We have an exciting opportunity for a Security Architect to work alongside a diverse and experienced team responsible for conducting analysis of and delivering consultancy on the security posture of complex system architectures for our UK & international clients. By collaborating with other architect disciplines and technical experts you will deliver a security viewpoint on architectures that will inform the design while ensuring security requirements are met. You will also be required to work collaboratively with other security experts, including Information Assurance consultants, accreditors, analysts and penetration testers to inform secure architectural design that meets all relevant governance requirements.

As and when required, you will be able to lead local security-related project delivery elements, including detailed technical levels as well as higher level project views, as well as lead local security governance project elements. This includes, but is not limited to, security assurance, aspects of accreditation, Government and commercial frameworks and related technical guidance/best practice. You will also apply detailed knowledge of the current cyber threat landscape, technical vulnerabilities and attack methodologies to the design of complex architectures.

Person Specification:

The successful applicant will have previous experience of applying architectural frameworks (e.g. TOGAF), as well as a sound understanding of Information Assurance Frameworks, both Government and commercial (e.g. IS 1&2, 27001, NIST). We're looking for someone with strong technical knowledge across multiple platforms and technologies, with demonstrable experience of identifying cyber security risks and developing proportionate mitigation's in solution designs.

You will have some experience of leading small teams, providing advice as part of larger project delivery teams with the ability to engage with a cross-section of stakeholders, both technical and non-technical. A certification demonstrating suitable expertise in Security Architecture, Information Assurance and Technical Architecture is highly desired but not essential.
