Job Description

Chief Operating Officer - Cyber Security Services
Location: London
Salary: Circa £170,000 Basic + Benefits and Equity Involvement Scheme

Our client is a privately owned and successfully growing Cyber Security company that provides a suite of technology and management solutions around monitoring, defence and response services for a range of customers. They are growing and have an enviable reputation for delivering robust and advanced outcomes for clients through professional service advice, technical quality and a long term customer care ethos.

The business has been built over many years and has a strong customer base. Unlike a range of other companies in the sector, it is owned by a successful 'industrialist' who invests in the long term development of technology and people, where they can produce exceptional customer solutions and build enviable shareholder value.

With ongoing growth planning, the business is looking to hire a Chief Operating Officer to assist the current leadership team. The Executive and Advisory Board is strong, and the business has a set of managers heading up the following five elements; People, Administration, Marketing & Sales, Professional Services & Consultancy, Technology & Managed Services. The business is truly customer driven, where a focus on deep understanding of customer needs, people and technology, creates innovative, robust and practical cyber security solutions.

This role will suit a highly-experienced senior cyber security business executive, who can bring their own well-developed community of relationships and a familiarity with managed security services and the competitive landscape. In this role, you will influence strategy and direction, and be focused on investing in and creating the perfect environment for the 'talent' required to drive customer engagement and success.
In return, you will be part of a significant team, where your insight and actions have a direct bearing on your own personal wealth creation. You will be encouraged to act for the company, but be yourself. Be courageous but humble, and always look for the best 'team' outcome.

If you have spent your recent career in a senior corporate role, or have assisted in an environment where your true efforts have not been recognised and are now looking to make a significant difference; if you have a true understanding of the Managed Cyber Security industry and have the Chief Operating Officer credentials and experience, I would really like to talk to you with the utmost discretion. Please email your CV in Word format quoting reference 277921/2/JF. Please also give details of your current remuneration package and notice period. We regret we cannot take telephone enquiries relating to this vacancy, due to the high level of responses expected.
