The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) is the UK’s national authority for cyber security. Our mission is to make the UK the safest place to live and do business online, in accordance with the UK's National Cyber Security Strategy and GCHQ’s corporate vision and values. The NCSC's vision and new business plan for this year is tied very closely to the national cyber strategy, which we expect to be issued in the Autumn. This exciting role of Strategy Lead within the NCSC Portfolio Office will engage across NCSC and Whitehall, and it will involve working within Whitehall and across NCSC, representing the NCSC/GCHQ position in working-level fora. It will require an ability to understand, develop and communicate NCSC’s strategic vision and outcomes and the post will require a collaborative approach to mature the translation of the new national cyber strategy outcomes into NCSC’s business planning. This post will provide opportunities for strategy development, strategic thinking, maturing governance systems, drafting and relationship management both within the department and across HMG.
We are looking for a new Strategy Lead in the NCSC’s Portfolio Office, for a single post within a small central team of 10 people. The team provides assurance and decision-making support to the NCSC Management Board and the wider leadership community within NCSC. The Strategy Lead works externally with Cabinet Office to ensure the NCSC’s strategy and delivery is well understood, and internally across NCSC to translate the national strategy into planning outcomes and metrics that drive delivery of the NCSC’s commitments and support GCHQ’s corporate planning requirements, which includes a commitment to hardwire Equality, Diversity and Inclusion into the NCSC’s strategy and planning. The role works within a small team, so flexibility is needed to reach in and help with other cross cutting work as needed.
If you’re excited about working with us and think you have some of what we’re looking for but aren’t sure if you’re 100% there yet… Back yourself and give it a go!
