You will work to enhance the existing processes and help define any new processes required to maintain the scope of the PCI audit, working with the business and IT to transfer project deliverables into sustainable BAU activities.

As a minimum requirement you’ll:

  • Be an experienced IT, Security professional or risk practitioner with knowledge of control frameworks
  • Have excellent written and verbal communication skills to liaise with relevant stakeholders and Senior Management.
  • Have strong analytical skills and the ability to work across teams to resolve issue and address remediation actions
  • Have a proven track record in delivery of key projects/activities, often to tight deadlines
  • Be diligent and have a good eye for detail, whilst not losing sight of the big picture

  • Be collaborative and work efficiently using an agile mindset where appropriate, supported by a can-do attitude

You’ll need to be able to understand the details, appropriately challenge findings, and ask the right questions to get to the heart of matters. The value you’ll bring will be determined through the accuracy and insight that you provide.

The extras you'll get

If you put a lot in, it’s only fair you should get a lot out. So if you help us do the right thing for our members, we’ll help further your career with us.

As part of our team you’ll get:
