Security Operations Analyst

The IT Security team are responsible for a range of activities across traditional IT Security domains including Security Event Monitoring, Vulnerability Management, Endpoint Security controls, Data Loss Prevention and Network Management & Security. With a split between Security & Network Operations and Security Architecture the team is very much technically focused.

IT Security works closely with their Information Security, Operational Risk & Audit teams to maintain a strong security & risk posture and effective operation and monitoring of key IT controls relative to these areas.

Working as part of the Security Operations team, a sub-function of the IT Security team, the role involves deploying, supporting, maintaining, optimising security systems and supporting Security Analysts in change activities. The role also involves system integration, automation and orchestration. Although a technical role, there are elements of the role which are less technical including managing playbook changes, producing metrics, control reporting and co-ordinating changes/ onboarding of security monitoring and response plans.

Independence of thought and self-improvement are expected along with responsibility and ownership. It is a varied role which offers the opportunity to really contribute. This position will be based in Edinburgh.

  • Security system administration, supporting multiple platforms and applications

  • Manage changes to security automation and orchestration platforms, including playbook changes
  • Manage and co-ordinate onboarding on new operational security services as well as new monitoring and response plans.


Several years of experience in a strong Security Engineer, Systems Engineer or related role. Candidates coming from a non-security Systems Engineer role are expected to have a good security understanding.

Experience should include:

  • Hands-on deployment and support of systems - security systems preferred
  • System administration, supporting multiple platforms and applications
