LGSS is one of the largest shared services in the UK; with over 1,800 staff providing back office, strategic and digital services to over a dozen public sector customers across Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire, Buckinghamshire and Norfolk. With over 400 IT employees providing over 800 applications, every day is full of opportunities and challenges.

Our service operates out of two geographically distributed primary data centres, alongside a set of smaller data centres. We use on premise hosting, alongside public cloud IaaS/SaaS and low code development platforms.

We have a vacancy for an IT Security Architect to join our IT service. A Security Architect plays an integral role in defining and assessing the organization's security strategy, architecture and practices. You will be required to effectively translate business objectives and risk management strategies into specific security processes enabled by security technologies and services.

This will involve developing and maintaining a security architecture process that enables the enterprise to plan and implement security solutions and capabilities that are clearly aligned with business, technology and threat drivers. You will need to coordinate with DevOps teams to advocate secure coding practices and escalate concerns related to poor coding practices to the CISO or the individual responsible for the overall security direction.

Other duties will involve review security technologies, tools and services, and make recommendations to the broader security team for their use based on security, financial and operational metrics.

This is an incredibly attractive position in the high profile and ever expanding area of IT security. An area constantly struggling with the rapid level of technological change. This post would be ideal for a person who is passionate about using IT systems to their fullest extend but without compromising the integrity of the data they hold and the rights of our customers and citizens..
