Position Description

Please note; in some instances we will expect to see the recruitment process lengthened, with interviewing and hiring taking place at a later date. Please be assured that if you apply for this role, your interest will be registered and we will be in touch soon to discuss your application further.

Be part of something exciting, come and join our Cyber Security business. DO you want to take control of your career? We’ve never been busier and we are looking for talented Security Architects with a blend of technical ability and passion for Cyber Security, to come and join us deliver market-leading cyber security solutions. We share your passion for security and it is part of everything we do at CGI.

As a Security Architect at CGI you’ll join a team over nearly 200 Cyber Security professionals in the UK, working on major programmes where security is critical including Defence Information Infrastructure, Police National Database, Galileo, and Smart Metering. We’re not tied to having to push particular security products, so this means that you’ll have the freedom to work closely with clients to develop appropriate design solutions to align with their security needs. In addition to being able to collaborate with our UK based consultants you’ll also have access to over 1200 Cyber Security professionals within CGI worldwide. This will enable you to provide innovative security solutions fully focused and tailored to our client’s needs. Our Cyber team cover all aspects of security and provide our clients with a one stop shop for all their security needs. This means you'll be involved in true end to end security solutions and delivery, from concept through to operation. We also work across all sectors both public and private from Government to Oil and Gas, from Utilities to banking and finance.

We encourage an entrepreneurial ethos at CGI and fully support professional development of our members. We actively encourage contributions to, and interaction with, appropriate Cyber industry bodies and organisations. If you want to take your Cyber Security career to the next level as part of a dynamic company that gives you a direct stake in its success please contact us today.

The nature of some of our work will mean that you will need to be eligible for, or already hold an appropriate level of UK Security Clearance. Whilst you will be based from one of our UK offices the nature of the role may necessitate expensed travel to client sites and other CGI offices as needed and this could include extended periods away as required. We value our members’ work/life balance and offer flexible working and endeavour to minimise, wherever possible, travel and time away.

Your future duties and responsibilities

As a Lead Security Architect with us you will consult on and design innovative solutions tailored to a deep understanding of our client's needs. You will advise our clients on the architecture of their secure business systems. You'll be the design authority on programmes collaborating across enterprise architectures to produce end-to-end security designs. Your knowledge and skills will be used to assist on bids, proposal for works, as well as on implementations and integrations. You will also be expected to represent us at senior stakeholder level and, as a Cyber Security expert, help to guide and influence our clients through their security issues to practical consultative solutions.

Required qualifications to be successful in this role

You will be able to demonstrate significant experience of consulting on, and the delivery of, secure system design and implementation, ideally as a technical security lead. Your all round technical security knowledge should be sound, and you should be able to demonstrate that you understand why security must be part of everything our clients do. You should also be able to demonstrate a complete understanding of the relationship between business purpose, risk and security in the design of your security solutions.

You should be an effective communicator both written and orally and be adept at persuasively presenting and justifying secure architecture design solutions.
You will be used to dealing with multiple client stakeholders both technical and non-technical and able to adapt your approach as required for your audience.
Your technical knowledge and understanding should be a given and backed up with appropriate professional qualifications.
Knowledge of GDPR is highly desirable, but is not essential.
