About the role

As a Security Compliance Officer, you will carry out activities that maintain and improve the Virgin Media Information Security Management System. You will be required to provide support and guidance to the business, drive improvement opportunities, as well as assisting the business in achieving compliance against the Virgin Media Security Policies, Standards and Controls, plus relevant external standards including ISO 27001.

So that's what you'll get up to, but what about us?

Well, we're super proud of our history, helping communities to stay connected with oodles of top-notch products and services. We offer the full works – Broadband, TV, mobile and landline – equipping our customers out with the very latest tech.

But it's not just what we do, but why we do it that really matters.

Our mission is to become the most recommended brand, by our people and our customers. A massive part of that journey is about how we ensure that our brilliant people have a working environment in which they can truly belong and thrive. For us, it's absolutely critical that every single person can bring, and be, their whole selves at work and we're working hard every day to achieve this.

Tell me more, tell me more…

You will be expected to support the delivery of wider additional standards required by the business including, but not limited to, the Telecoms Security Regulations, PSN, and HSCN.

The role will be expected to act as a subject matter expert on these standards; they will work with control owners across the organisation, across levels of management up to senior leadership team members, and external auditors and assessors.

The must haves

  • Knowledge or experience of the PSN, HSCN, and Cyber Essentials Frameworks and associated assessments
  • Management of Penetration Testing, IT Health Checks, and other Security Testing
  • Demonstratable experience in an information security role in a large commercial organisation.
  • Proven experience of implementation of an ISMS in line with ISO 27001
  • Be able to hold security clearance, minimum of BPSS up to and inclusive of NPPV L3 and SC.

Other stuff we’re looking for

  • Educated to degree level or holding a professional qualification (e.g. CISSP, CISM, ISO 27001 Auditor / Implementer)

What’s in it for you?

We know that benefits mean so much more than the 'stuff' we can give you, so we offer a wide range of support, rewards and tools - all focused on helping you to prioritise what really matters.

All work and no play just isn't our style! We're already planning our future ways of working, for when life becomes a little more normal again. We're constantly evolving our approach to enable you to find a great work life balance.

We're also open to chatting about part time or adjusted working (so don't be worried to ask the question).

If you go on to be successful in your application, some of the many benefits you'll get are:

25 days annual leave, plus UK Bank Holidays.

A defined contribution pension scheme, run by Fidelity, matched up to 10%.

An annual bonus of up to 15%, based on company performance.

Access to wellbeing benefits such as the Unmind App, personal medical

cover (which you can opt to upgrade to cover loved ones) and critical illness cover.

Your birthday off every year, to treat yourself.

The option to buy and sell up to 5 days annual leave, to suit your personal needs.
