Due to growth within our Risk Division, we are looking to recruit an experienced Security Risk Management Consultant on a permanent basis. The successful candidate will support the Information Security Manager in embedding Security and IT risk management in the Group.

The successful candidate will provide expert technical advice to stakeholders to make their business areas, suppliers and change programmes resilience in line with the Group’s risk appetites and in line with industry standards e.g. ISO 22301, ISO 27001, COBIT, ITIL and regulations e.g. FCA / PRA / ICO. You will collate the results of fact finds and business impact assessments to analyse the results to identify key risks to oversee, improve and manage. You will collect, aggregate and analyse risk data from across the business relevant to the cybersecurity, IT and privacy risk profile within NFU Mutual in order to produce meaningful and timely Management Information to governance committees and the executive management. You will support the creation and roll out of the Group’s policies and risk frameworks, so they are in line with current regulations and best practice; and monitor and oversee the maintenance of an enterprise wide exceptions register to policy compliance. You will support the delivery of NFU Mutal’s awareness programme to assist, advise and deliver the security awareness of all levels of business users to ensure Data Protection and Information Security best practices are embedded in line with corporate policy.

About you

You will have a proven background within a similar position with an excellent understanding of the
ISF Standard of Good Practice and other security standards such as ISO 27001:13 and NIST frameworks. You will have excellent experience of security risk assessment and demonstrable understanding of the IT frameworks e.g. COBIT and ITIL. Experience of operating a policy compliance and exceptions framework in a 2nd line assurance function is key as is experience of information analysis, interpreting complex issues and offering appropriate advice on these topics to senior business stakeholders. Strong stakeholder management experience is essential, as are good communication skills.
