Our Cloud Centre of Excellence (CCoE) is looking for a Microsoft Azure Cloud Controls Assurance Lead to ensure the security of the Public Cloud services within the scope of the CCoE.

This is a senior leadership level role that will blend both deep domain and controls assurance expertise with a passion for security. You’ll advocate for adoption of the LCCF across the CCoE and be accountable for building an outstanding controls assurance team with supporting processes and procedures, and regularly looking for continuous improvement and automation opportunities. The role will require someone that can interpret technical concepts and translate them into something meaningful to a non-technical and senior audience.
