In this role, you’ll be contributing to something that really matters as you make sure that officers and staff can continue to protect the UK.

It will see you supporting regions right across the CTP Network and establish local mechanisms to continually monitor and maintain compliance. This will involve IT related monitoring and audits, and it’ll also call on your ability to collate, interpret and evaluate information to produce detailed reports in a clear format. You’ll be producing high level reports for senior management on assurance activity and findings, and making recommendations for any areas that could be improved.

You’ll need initiative, drive, personal resilience and the motivation to deliver a high quality service.
Your experience in the administration of security incidents will be key, as will your skills in collaboration and stakeholder engagement. Ideally, you’ll also have a background or qualification in cyber security, computing or information security.

You can be sure you’ll be among some of the best and brightest individuals around. You’ll also have the chance to learn new skills and be part of a team operating at the highest level of national responsibilities.

As well as this, you’ll enjoy benefits including substantial annual leave, Civil Service pension arrangements, interest free season ticket loans, flexible working conditions and more.
