Our customers demand a first-class service which is safe and secure. To support this, our Security Operations team is currently looking for a professional with a technical background in Cyber Security, specifically with expertise in Cyber Threat Intelligence.

We're looking for an ambitious, energetic, and experienced cyber security professional with a proven track record of working within threat intelligence functions, particularly in the Financial Services sector.

You'll excel when working in fast paced environments where you are responsible for maintaining high standards of operational output. You’ll also be an advocate of threat intelligence and its value and be.

You'll have a strong technical understanding of the cyber threats facing large organisations, along with the technical mitigations appropriate to those threats. As well as this, you’ll have a natural passion and curiosity for security and intelligence and be able to blend technical details with traditional intelligence tradecraft to produce concise, relevant, robust, and timely assessments, for technical and non-technical consumers.

You’ll be triaging and analysing collected data, including social media, dark web, and news stories and investigating complex threat intelligence reporting from our vendors and partners to produce appropriate, refined, and robust intelligence products to answer requirements, and provide actionable insights.

Working as part of a multi-disciplinary team, you’ll need to communicate your assessments to an audience across multiple levels and departments. We work closely with our peers in other organisations, as well as our vendors, and the role will also be central in managing and developing these relationships.

  • Experience handling and disseminating material when responding to tactical, operational, and strategic objectives

  • Detailed knowledge of the cyber security domain, including the tools, techniques and procedures used by attackers

  • Highly competent in the collection and analysis of technical and non-technical data, and able to produce clear and concise assessments to answer a wide range of intelligence requests
