As part of the role you will need to lead on secure design input for complicated solutions and be able to challenge approaches and suggest innovative alternatives including providing input to architectures and patterns. As the projects will involve both On-Prem and Cloud solutions, you should be very comfortable with both environments and able to identify and articulate any risks.

In addition to your significant experience, you will have demonstrated your skills by achieving the relevant certifications.

This role will require working with a variety of stakeholders, including clients, vendors and accreditors. This means working closely with accreditors so that all accreditation can be delivered and you will need to be comfortable in identifying and mitigating any risks associated with this. Given the stakeholders you will be working with, you should be able to easily translate complex security issues to match the audience, particularly to explain risks or challenges with any proposed solutions as you may need to provide specialist advice, recommendations or advise technologies and their impacts.
