You will act as an escalation point for Cyber Security incidents and provide specialist advice and knowledge to support the service operations centre as well as developing Cyber Security Training packages for both the team and the organisation.

The post holder will undertake other relevant duties as agreed with the ICT Voice Services Team Leader, ICT Network, Cyber Security & Telecoms Manager, and Technical Services Manager commensurate with the banding of this role.
