Job Description

Security Assurance Consultant - £Market Rates - London Based - Initial 3 Month Contract

Our Public Sector client is looking for a Security Assurance Consultant to come on board and tier its assurance process to ensure the greatest effort is devoted to Critical and High impact systems whilst reflecting project delivery changes across the organisation including the move towards agile and Continuous Iteration development.


Currently the process can be time consuming and is more heavily using the waterfall methodology. The security aspect is usually not looked at until the end of a project which can then result in delays and interruptions of the go-live.

Changes in the law including GDPR mean that the organisation should be able to demonstrate that its systems are secure by design.

A consultant has already started to examine the assurance process requirement producing a high level strategic approach. This seeks to align assurance with existing DevOps and Enterprise Architect processes.

A consultant is now required to mature and develop this concept further.


  • An understanding of ICT Systems, systems assurance, risk and risk management to assess the criteria for the types of systems to be covered.
  • An understanding of different development practices e.g. agile development.
  • Business Analyst skills to be able to examine existing processes across the organisation in order to consider how security assurance processes can be embedded and these processes streamlined.
  • An understanding of Microsoft tools and the ServiceNow platform.
