Job Description

Position Description:

Be part of something exciting, come and join our Cyber Security business. Do you want to take control of your career? We’ve never been busier and we are looking for talented Security Architects with a blend of technical ability and passion for Cyber Security, to come and join us deliver market-leading cyber security solutions. We share your passion for security and it is part of everything we do at CGI. As a Security Architect at CGI you’ll join a team over nearly 200 Cyber Security professionals in the UK, working on major programmes where security is critical including Defence Information Infrastructure, Police National Database, Galileo, and Smart Metering. We’re not tied to having to push particular security products, so this means that you’ll have the freedom to work closely with clients to develop appropriate design solutions to align with their security needs. In addition to being able to collaborate with our UK based consultants you’ll also have access to over 1200 Cyber Security professionals within CGI worldwide. This will enable you to provide innovative security solutions fully focused and tailored to our client’s needs. Our Cyber team cover all aspects of security and provide our clients with a one stop shop for all their security needs. This means you'll be involved in true end to end security solutions and delivery, from concept through to operation. We also work across all sectors both public and private from Government to Oil and Gas, from Utilities to banking and finance.
We encourage an entrepreneurial ethos at CGI and fully support professional development of our members. We actively encourage contributions to, and interaction with, appropriate Cyber industry bodies and organisations. If you want to take your Cyber Security career to the next level as part of a dynamic company that gives you a direct stake in its success please contact us today.
The nature of some of our work will mean that you will need to be eligible for, or already hold an appropriate level of UK Security Clearance. Whilst you will be based from one of our UK offices the nature of the role may necessitate expensed travel to client sites and other CGI offices as needed and this could include extended periods away as required. We value our members’ work/life balance and offer flexible working and endeavour to minimise, wherever possible, travel and time away.

Your future duties and responsibilities:

As a Security Architect with us you will consult on and contribute to the design of innovative solutions addressing the needs of our client. You will advise our clients on the architecture of their secure business systems. You'll work with the design authority on programmes collaborating across enterprise architectures to produce end-to-end security designs. Your knowledge and skills will be used to assist on bids, proposal for works, as well as on implementations and integrations. You will guide and influence our clients through their security issues to practical solutions. Your work will enable you to broaden and deepen your security experience to progress your career towards Lead Security Architect.

Required qualifications to be successful in this role:

You will be able to demonstrate experience of design and implementation of components of secure systems or services. Your technical security knowledge should either be as an SME in an aspect of security or have an understanding of a range of aspects at a less detailed level. You should be able to demonstrate that you understand why security must be part of everything our clients do and the need for an appropriate balance between business purpose, risk and security in the design of security solutions.
You should be an effective communicator both written and orally and support presenting and justifying aspects of secure architecture design. You will be used to dealing with non-security stakeholders both technical and non-technical and able to respond to the specific concerns of your audience. You should be confident in your technical knowledge and understanding, and may have appropriate professional qualifications. Knowledge of GDPR is beneficial, but is not essential.

What you can expect from us:

Build your career with us.
It is an extraordinary time to be in business. As digital transformation continues to accelerate, CGI is at the center of this change—supporting our clients’ digital journeys and offering our professionals exciting career opportunities.
At CGI, our success comes from the talent and commitment of our professionals. As one team, we share the challenges and rewards that come from growing our company, which reinforces our culture of ownership. All of our professionals benefit from the value we collectively create.
