The Opportunity


Are you looking for a career which is rewarding, at the cutting edge of project development and where you can really make a difference? Come and join our expanding Sizewell C (SZC) team and work on one of the most exciting projects in the UK, whilst being at the forefront of the UK’s climate change agenda and energy policy. The SZC Project is a ~£20bn nuclear new build project in Suffolk which is currently seeking planning approval and financing from HMG and investors, with a view to start construction in 2023. When completed, it will provide dependable electricity to 6 million homes for 60 years supporting our objective to help Britain achieve Net Zero by 2050.


As a Cyber Security Risk and Governance Manager, you’ll be responsible for identifying contracts which pose substantial nuclear and commercial business security risks to NNB Gen Co (Sizewell C). Coordinating requirements from security Intelligent Customer (IC) leads, you’ll ensure that End 2 End (E2E) security requirements are captured and established correctly within contracts, that any unaccounted scope is transferred back to the risk owner for resolution and that the delivery of the contract requirements is assessed.  


Our teams are set up to work flexibly, therefore you don’t have to live in London. If you’re able to travel to the London office to collaborate with your team and stakeholders when required, you can be based anywhere in the UK. We provide a full suite of IT equipment to ensure that our employees can work from home comfortably and effectively. 


The Role


We’re looking for someone to promote NNB Gen Co (SZC) security policies, procedures and requirements to procurement staff, contractors and third parties to improve security awareness and performance. 


Working in collaboration with the Contract Security Officers and the Incident Assurance manager within the Technical Services Organisation (TSO), you’ll decide how to track and report supply chain security performance using existing software or developing Sizewell’s software considering suitable tools available such as Power BI and Abriska.


The role will allow you ensure supply chain security assessments and requirements keep pace with the SZC project threat assessment; with specific reference to cyber, information security, operational technology (OT), communications, internet of things (IoT) and industrial IoT.


Working closely with the SZC Security Manager, you’ll ensure that the SZC project's overall security arrangements meet the required legislation, standards etc.


You’ll be able to identify any suppliers who continually fail to meet security and performance expectations as well as identifying critical assets and any over-reliance on single suppliers. 

The Skills


We’d love for you to have strong documentation writing skills required for the ongoing development of related compliance procedures.

It would be great if you have experience in providing security guidance to supply chain and undertaking assurance reviews of IT and operational technology (OT) systems support functions and procedures.

You may have good working experience of formal accreditation and risk assessment methodologies for IT and OT such as ISO27005, IEC 62443 and/or NIST 800-53.

You’re likely to be educated to degree level (or equivalent) or have a comparable level of practical experience.

You might have a recognised security or audit certification e.g. CISSP, CISA, ISO2700X auditor, ITPC Accreditor, CCP (SIRA/Accreditor/Auditor/ITSO) or similar.

Good working knowledge of applicable national and international standards and information security frameworks (ISO27001, HMG Security Policy Framework) and NCSC/CPNI security standards and guidance is beneficial.

An understanding of complex cyber and information security challenges, threats and risks is highly desirable.

Experience of defining, understanding and interpreting contractual security clauses and requirements (preferably in alignment with HMG and/or Civil Nuclear Information Security Standards) in delivery of 3rd party contracts, and assuring compliance with those requirements is advantageous. 

You must currently hold or be able to achieve NSV SC.
