Who you’ll be working with

With incidents of cyber-crime frequently in the news, Capgemini’s clients are increasing conscious of the need to protect their systems and data.  The successful applicant for this role will join Capgemini’s Inverness based UK Security Operations Team, which in turn forms part of the Company’s Global Cybersecurity Unit.


The Highland Security Operations Centre (HSOC) has proven highly successful since its formation in 2014 and serves a range of government and commercial clients headquartered in the UK and Continental Europe.  Successful applicants will have the chance to develop a career which in the future could see them working in areas such as Protective Monitoring, Threat Intelligence, Vulnerability Management, Penetration Testing, Digital Forensics and Identity & Access Management.


The HSOC does now have office space in Nairn and there are plans during 2018 to refurbish this into a second Highland SOC.  However do note that whilst some opportunity to work from the Nairn office does exist right now, all training will be done in Inverness.  One of these roles will need to be Inverness based, with the other possible from either location.


The focus of your role

Successful applicants will be responsible for ensuring the integrity of client IT infrastructures, and protecting information systems residing upon them from external and internal attack or compromise.  Training will be provided where needed but senior analysts will need to demonstrate skills in most of the following and demonstrate an aptitude and desire to train in the others


As part of the mutualised HSOC team HMG security vetting clearance at SC level is required.  Successful applicants not already in possession of SC will need achieve this during their probation period; HSOC staff will assist and advise.

What you’ll do

There are two senior analyst roles presently available within HSOC: In the first the successful applicant will work exclusively with one particular client managing their advanced threat protection tool along with other duties as per below forming part of the 24 x 7 shift team.

  • Vulnerability Management
  • Threat Intelligence
  • Malware Prevention
  • Information Protection
  • Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)
  • Data Loss Prevention
  • Advance Threat Detection/Prevention
  • Reporting and Communication
  • Innovation


The second role is multi-client but brought about by another exciting new name business win for HSOC.  It is full time with a 37.5 hour week worked Monday to Friday Core Hours, and the duties will include.

  • Overall Client Delivery Lead (One client)
  • Security Incident Management
  • Security Compliance
  • Vulnerability Management
  • Threat Intelligence
  • Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)
  • Security Reporting & Communication


Both roles will involve some management of HSOC staff engaged on the duties described above.

What you’ll bring

  • The ability to spot and asses security risk wherever it may exist
