Job Description

Are you interested in working for a world top 100 University?

Come and be part of an innovative and influential University department delivering excellent IT and business services to a leading Russell Group institution. With a reputation for engaging staff and students in partnership to deliver services, for three years running UK students have voted us best for IT support. We are committed to delivering and supporting excellent customer focussed services and to do this we need to recruit the best staff, invested in higher education and dedicated to supporting sector leading learning, teaching and research – and that’s why we need you…

We have an exciting opportunity in our department for someone with a passion for Information Security looking to use their skills in security analysis and risk management to help secure the University’s data, services, systems, processes and people.
The University is seeking to enhance its Information Security function with the recruitment of an Information Security Coordinator. Your priority will be to ensure that the life cycles of data, products and services, accounts and equipment are secured and in compliance with any applicable legal, regulatory or contractual requirements.

You will work with the University’s Information Security Manager to give assurance to the University and its partners that we are able to protect information. You will support our staff and students to make sure they can work safely whilst getting the best out of the information under their control. This will include the development and dissemination of policies, processes,
procedures and supporting documentation as well as responding to requests for advice and guidance.

You will have experience of recognised information security standards and frameworks such as ISO 27001, PCI DSS and Cyber Essentials will be particularly advantageous. We collaborate closely with external stakeholders (in both the public and private sector) to satisfy their information governance requirements.

You will be working in a diverse environment that provides a wide range of IT services. You will be required to assess the relative merits and demerits of centrally managed, locally managed and externally provided services against information security good practice and standards.

You will report to the University’s Information Security Manager.
