Interim Security Assurance Manager/ Risk Manager -Remote Working – PSR1JP00054838
Pay Rate: Up to £500 per day pay range subject to IR35 status

Remote Working - Although this role is based in Didcot, Oxfordshire, working from home is acceptable for this role.

This newly created role is responsible for planning, supporting and coordinating the necessary actions to assure all aspects of Physical Security and Personnel Security at the site.

This role has both an internal and external focus and will entail reviewing Physical/Personnel Security Policy of the waste management of radioactive material and Procedures in order to meet the necessary requirements of the Office for Nuclear Regulation’s Security Assessment Principles (and the associated Technical Assessment Guides), as well as aligning policy with delivery to ensure the security function enables the business to operate effectively, appropriately, and proportionally.

This role will also require the incumbent to collaborate with all stakeholders in the organisation's supply chain (both internal and external) to meet regulatory/policy/audit requirements, as well as ensure supply chain compliance.

The role holder will work as part of the Health, Safety, Security, Environment and Quality Directorate, as well as with stakeholders across the organisation, to provide risk owners with the necessary advice and guidance on assurance requirements, in line with risk appetite and operational requirements.

The role holder will also play a key part in the adoption of a proactive and risk-led approach to assurance. Recording compliance is a minority task for the role.

Key Accountabilities:

  • Own and maintain processes for security assurance, ensuring their fitness for purpose as the regulatory and operating environment evolves
  • Design, undertake, commission and oversee security assurance activities, providing the link between risk assessments and risk treatment
  • Develop risk-balance cases
  • Assist programmes, projects and commercial activities in the interpretation and application of security policies, standards and practices
  • Work with key stakeholders to embed secure-by-design and ensure appropriate through-life assurance activities are planned, established and then managed
  • Share relevant assurance evidence across the organisation to increase the efficiency and speed of putting new capabilities into service
  • Support and inform supply chain security risk management and assurance activities
  • In conjunction with key stakeholders, develop and manages a supply chain security program aligning with business needs and regulatory requirements
  • Assess the supply chain landscape and recommend modifications to security plans and supply chain security operations at both the regional and global level
  • Review and refine security processes/procedures

Your CV must cover the “Essential Requirements” of the role. Ideally you will address the “Essential Requirements” on each job description page directly, in a bullet point list. Please include any DBS details and other qualifications called for.

Your CV should clearly state that you are available to start work either immediately, or at short notice. In general, our clients are unable to work with notice periods of more than 1 week from the point at which a role is offered, 2 weeks at the very most.
