ABOUT THE ROLE
As Information Security Manager with Barchester Healthcare, you'll head up and determine the strategic direction of our Information Security function. As part of that, you can expect to design, implement, maintain and develop our information security management system in line with all relevant ISO/IEC standards. Ultimately, you'll be our go-to person for information security and risk matters, driving improvements in information security across the whole organisation. That's going to mean creating a 'centre of excellence' for information security management, identifying any threats and offering internal management consultancy advice.
We'll need you to lead the drafting and implementation of appropriate information security policies, standards, procedures and guidelines, working alongside other IT and business managers. As our Information Security Manager, you'll need to get the buy-in of internal stakeholders from across the organisation to ensure that information security is seen as a priority and factored into our procurement processes and any new projects. That could involve delivering information security awareness initiatives and training. Your other responsibilities will include ensuring full regulatory compliance by monitoring and improving our processes, investigating and resolving any incidents, keeping up with the latest developments in the information security field, and taking the lead in our IT contingency and disaster recover plans. You'll be based at our Inverness Support Office, but there'll be an occasional need for you to travel to other UK-wide locations.
You should have a degree-level education or equivalent with relevant information security experience and proven project management skills. We'll need to see a good knowledge of PCs and Microsoft products and a solid understanding of GDPR, the Data Protection Act 2018 and ISO/IEC 27001. If you hold, or are working towards, a relevant information security certification, that would be an advantage.
Practical, proactive, personable and helpful, you can work on your own initiative to get things done and hit your deadlines - even when you're multitasking. Good attention to detail is important and, as a confident communicator, you'll be able to convey technical information to non-technical stakeholders and build good working relationships with people at all levels. Because there will be some UK-wide travel involved, a flexible approach and a full, clean driving licence are both essential.
As well as a competitive salary, we offer impressive benefits which would include: a contribution pension scheme, and free training and development.
If you'd like to use your information security experience and people skills in an organisation that provides the quality care you'd expect for your loved ones, this is an empowering and rewarding place to be.
