IT Assurance Consultant (1st / 2nd Line of Defence)

Our client, a major UK based insurance business with a global presence, is building an independent IT Governance and Risk team to support the business in providing IT assurance for all of the business' major suppliers. 

Reporting into the Head of IT Risk and business development, these positions represent an exciting opportunity for an Information Security or IT Audit / Risk professional to join a newly established team looking at areas such as information security, vendor management, IT Change and operations. 

Your role will be to establish relationships across a variety of different suppliers (primarily with the CIO) to mentor and coach around key risks and IT controls methodology. 

The role sits across 1st and 2nd line in terms of delivery but there is ample opportunity to move into other areas of the business, (such as IT Audit or Information Security Governance) and this will be actively encouraged by the leadership team. 

If you are an Technology Assurance professional with a continuous track record of managing and developing stakeholders and are looking for a more business facing role, please register your interest. 

The role requires a minimum of 5 years IT assurance experience.
