Contract: Permanent, full-time – flexible and part-time hours available if desired, just let us know.


In this exciting role, you will own the Kier Highways Information Security practises and processes to meet UK Government, National Highways and Kiers stringent policies and controls.

You will assess, analyse, and report on the security needs and drive the development and implementation of Kier Group Information Security strategy into Kier Highways.

You’ll provide leadership in assessing the security governance, risk and compliance requirements across Kier Highways and provide leadership between technology groups and other Kier Business Units.

You’ll also provide security expertise across security standards and accreditations, measure and control the effectiveness of the security controls framework and maintain the Information Security Management System.
