Our Future Health is looking to recruit two Security Engineers to join our Technology and Data Team. You'll be reporting to our newly appointed Director of Information Security. This role is needed to support the implementation of our new security strategy and the onboarding/smooth running of our MSP SOC. You’ll have key relationships with various people across our Security, Tech Ops and Engineering Teams.

This opportunity would suit someone who is looking to take on more ownership in their role, maximise the value provided by our tools and shape the way we work in this newly formed team within Technology and Data.

At Our Future Health, our mission is to transform the prevention, detection and treatment of conditions such as dementia, cancer, diabetes, heart disease and stroke.  We’re looking for people to join us on our journey. If you’re looking for a new challenge where you can contribute to helping future generations live in good health for longer, then we’re keen to speak with you. 

What you’ll be doing:

This role will help us mature our security operations through enhancing and automating various security controls. In this role, you will :

  • Supervise the MSP SOC to ensure a high-quality service is provided, incidents are correctly investigated and resolved and that the maturity (inc. efficiency) of our security monitoring and incident response is continually improving
  • Leverage in-house knowledge to enrich and benefit the SIEM and SOC (e.g. managing Sentinel watchlists, assisting with triage, sharing knowledge of our technical estate with the MSP analysts, etc.)
  • Create and tune SIEM use cases (inc. Sentinel Analytic Rules and Anomaly Detection Rules)
  • Build and operate SOAR capabilities (using Azure Logic Apps)
  • Develop automated custom reports on security operational performance and broader security topics (using Sentinel workbooks)

  • Collaborate with wider tech and security teams on the implementation and operation of a robust Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) service
  • Provide guidance and a level of oversight for vulnerability management and triage work
  • Document security processes and security tool low-level design/configuration
  • Contribute to the development of security service delivery and operation documentation
  • Assist tech teams with integrating their systems and services with security services and tools
  • Support the cloud security and application security engineers and wider security team with their various responsibilities, including achieving and maintaining ISO 27001 certification and threat modelling activities.

What you won’t be doing:

Working in a siloed environment with no freedom to make decisions.

Working in an environment where you can’t see the impact your expertise makes.
