The Client: Delt Shared Services Limited (www.deltservices.co.uk), is an innovative shared services partnership between local government and the NHS. Their founding shareholders believed that contrary to conventional outsourcing, it was possible to deliver back office services, better, faster and cheaper through keeping those services local.

The model works!  They have measurably delivered not only better, faster and cheaper but very much in excess of their shareholders’ original expectations. They work with clients in the public, private and third sectors, with the common theme that they are all working in the public interest.

  • To own Delt’s business continuity and disaster recovery planning.
  • Provide assistance to customers on the technical elements of business continuity planning.
  • Continually seek business opportunities with existing and new clients.

The Candidate:  A passionate leader and builder of both vision and bridges, able to energise and motivate not only the Delt Information Security Team but also the wider Delt workforce and those of their clients.  You will possess excellent written and verbal communication skills, interpersonal and collaborative skills and the ability to communicate to both technical and non-technical audiences.  An essential requirement would be an in-depth background and demonstrable knowledge of business management, information security risk management, data protection and cyber security technologies, including common information security management information frameworks, such as ISO/IEC 27001, ITIL and COBIT.
