Cyber Security Manager

Scott-Moncrieff’s Business Technology Consulting (BTC) practice has been growing rapidly over the last three years and provides advisory services to some of the largest public sector bodies in Scotland as well as a range of clients across the Financial Services and Commercial sectors.

Cyber Security has been at the heart of this growth, and BTC has established a small dedicated Cyber Security team, to provide their clients with real technical expertise.  The Cyber Security team operates across Scott-Moncrieff’s client base, performing Cyber Assurance assignments, reviewing clients and their third-party suppliers against existing cyber security standards, research and advisory work, and client training.  Investment is planned in 2019 to enable the team to provide clients with Cyber Essentials certifications and the technical skills to carry out vulnerability assessments.

Following the acquisition of Scott-Moncrieff by Baldwins Group in May 2019, the Cyber Security team now has access to the client base of Campbell Dallas, Baldwins, Blick Rothenberg and Wilkins Kennedy.  This coupled with the investment described above provides a huge opportunity to grow the team.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an individual with experience of and interest in cyber security and consulting, who is ready to take on a leadership role.  The role requires the candidate to be confident and knowledgeable when discussing cyber security issues with clients.  The role also involves leading the more junior team members and supporting them with technical issues and questions.  Finally, the role involves supporting the leadership of BTC in implementing the investment planned and in growing the Cyber Security offering across the Baldwins group. 

This role is based in Scotland and the successful candidate can work from either Glasgow or Edinburgh.  However, there will be a requirement to travel from time to time, clients are often located outside Glasgow and Edinburgh and the Baldwins Group is UK wide.  Scott-Moncrieff is committed to training its staff and there is an expectation that the successful candidate will spend time on keeping their skills and knowledge of cyber security up to date.  Scott-Moncrieff will provide budget for training and support for staff members who are under-taking training.
