fscom is expanding and we are keen to recruit a Senior Information Security professional to assist with the growth and delivery of projects across our IT & Information Security team.
Job Title: Associate Director – IT & Info Sec
Reporting to: Director
Location: Belfast, with travel between our offices in Dublin and London
Grade: Associate Director
fscom is a boutique consultancy business providing specialist compliance and regulatory advice to our clients. We specialise within the FinTech sector and have a very strong reputation with payment services and e-money clients. We have grown quickly and have built our reputation through expertise, excellent client service and acting as a trusted Partner to help our clients grow their business in a compliant way. Our excellent reputation is a testament to the expertise of our people, particularly our directors, who are all industry experts.
We have three core technical areas financial crime advisory, payment services/e-money regulations and IT & Info Sec. In view of our strong growth strategy across these areas coupled with the enhanced regulatory obligations of the second Payment Services Directive and GDPR, we recognise the importance of extending our team of IT &InfoSec specialists to fully cater for our FinTech and payment services clients.
As such, we are now recruiting for an Associate Director in our IT & Info Sec team.
The Head of IT & InfoSec leads a team of compliance experts who advise clients on their regulatory obligations to maintain sound and secure information security systems and works with them to develop and implement effective policies and procedures. The Associate Director will be required to develop a strategy to grow the IT & InfoSec compliance consultancy function in fscom, including the identification and delivery of relevant service lines such as IT audit and advisory.
You will be a part of a wider team that provides expert guidance on payments and financial crime obligations and assurance to the payments and e-money sectors in the UK and Ireland and you will be an active contributor to our senior management team. You will therefore not only need to have the experience and knowledge for the role, but also credibility and a leadership style that attracts and maintains the confidence of a variety of stakeholders. Your approach will be solutions-focused and will rely on your ability to apply your expertise while building and maintaining productive working relationships. Your solutions are not only compliant, but they are commercially sound and client focused. The role is based in Belfast but involves frequent travel to London and Dublin, which may, occasionally, be at short notice.
