Cyber Security Consultant (Mid - Senior)

Permanent positions based in Swansea or Bristol - £29,832 to £42,991 + digitech allowance

Are you an experienced security professional who would like the opportunity to play a key role in protecting the things that matter at DVLA and to contribute to the development and support of new DVLA IT services? If so, our Senior Cyber Security Consultant roles offer you the challenge you are looking for, and real opportunities to build on your professional experience.

Cyber security is currently seen as a key area within Government, addressing a Tier 1 Threat and being a key enabler for the delivery of on-line services. DVLA’s role in delivering significant on-line services to the public and caring for the key Driver and Vehicle databases which are part of the UK Critical National Infrastructure, results in cyber security being viewed as an essential activity, in which the organisation continues to invest. DVLA has an extensive change program to build world class digital services, and in that context getting the security right is an imperative. The successful candidates will work as part of the Cyber Security Services team, providing cyber security consultancy services for projects and business as usual activities and supporting ongoing compliance and accreditation.

We are looking for security professionals with substantial experience, but this technically fascinating role will provide opportunities to broaden that already significant experience.

You will have the opportunity to:-

  • Apply your extensive knowledge of cyber and information security
  • Assess risks to existing and proposed systems and technical solutions, and then devise risk management plans to address such risks
  • To a large degree manage your own time and resources to deliver the required outcomes
  • Be actively engaged in the major change program being implemented at DVLA, including playing an important role in solution evaluation and technology selection.
  • Develop and maintain good relationships with a wide range of stakeholders
  • Work as part of a team to deliver cyber security services
  • Develop progress your own skills and career and also to actively coach and develop others

Essential Criteria – Qualifications & Experience

You will be a security professional with significant experience of cyber security, especially in relation to:

  • Understanding a broad knowledge of the issues and techniques associated with securing a variety of technologies, and a knowledge of the cyber security industry (knowledge of security in a UK Government context would be highly advantageous, but not an absolute necessity).
  • A substantial understanding of risk, and risk assessment and management techniques (ideally experience using a range of methodologies and tools).
  • An understanding of security architecture (ideally based on the SABSA architectural framework)

We would expect that such experience will be evidenced, such as by possession of relevant professional qualifications (e.g. CISSP or CISM), but other evidence will also be considered, and even where professional qualifications are held, evidence of practical application will also be sought.

You will also require:

  • Consultancy and negotiation skills.
  • An ability to maintain working relationships with key stakeholders.
