Governance and Compliance Manager

£70000 - £85000 per annum

Governance and Compliance Manager EMEA

Remote – occasional office (London or the North)


£70 – £85k

Started as a family business over 80yrs ago and still a family business to this day, our client now has a global presence with over 4000 employees. The Governance and Compliance manager role is a newly created role and therefore a chance to stamp your mark on it.

When it comes to InfoSec, this is basically a greenfield site, a company at the start of a huge cloud transformation project. As primary point of contact responsible for leading and directing the Governance and Compliance, you need to be somebody that gets excited by the lack of maturity, someone not easily phased by the task ahead. Never BAU, this is a broad and exciting role.

A great place to work, and proof of that is the length of time employees stay. Part of the role will be to build good relations with senior colleagues (all colleagues) and take a considered and empathetic approach to security implementation and awareness training – this isn’t a place for ego’s, it’s a place to lead and listen with empathy, it’s a friendly culture and team rather than a hierarchy.

You’ll be in a team of 7ppl reporting into the Head of InfoSec. It’s expected that they’ll be additional head count reporting into you in the next 12mths, so it’s a great opportunity for professional advancement – something very much encouraged by the Head of.

The Role and Responsibilities of Governance and Compliance Manager:

  • Work with the team and Head of InfoSec to provide leadership and direction for the information security and governance across the entire business.
  • Primary point of contact, on a day-to-day basis, for all Information Governance related issues.
  • Tactical and purposeful delivery of governance and compliance policies, processes and standards.
  • Develop and cascade a culture of security awareness throughout the business.
  • Develop the strategy for and assurance of the confidentiality, integrity, availability and quality of all data.
  • Develop a cloud security strategy, governance measures and policies

Requirements of the Governance and Compliance Manager

  • SME with experience working in highly regulated environments.
  • Excellent comms – written and verbal – stakeholder management experience
  • A collaborative attitude and a roll you sleeves up mentality
  • Proven experience of defining the information security policies, controls and processes to manage an organisations’ risk position
  • Experience of ISO 27001, NIST, NCSC, PCI DSS requirements and other regulatory obligations
  • Experience in risk and vulnerability management
  • AWS certifications in Security – or experience in that area.
  • Ability to travel to the North of England or London for occasional meetings.
