Job Description

Head of Cloud Security Operations

Salary - £100-110k + Strong Bonus + Benefits

Location - Surrey (Can accommodate flexible working)

I'm currently working with one of the largest Insurance companies worldwide who are in the process of building out their SaaS Insurance capability and looking to bring in a Head of Cloud Security Operations to head up and implement the Cloud Governance and Security strategy.

Ideally, they are looking for someone with a technical background who can be the SecOps SME and Cloud Security escalation point; but crucially, someone who can lead this capability and influence senior stakeholders in other areas of the business as to why certain security controls need to be put in place, translating technical concepts into business risks.

This really is an incredible opportunity to head up and build a small but growing team of Cloud and SecOps specialists, just as this SaaS capability is about to take off and really scale at significant pace. This is an organization that take security seriously and you will have significant budget and freedom to implement security best practices and build this team as you see fit.


  • Drive the implementation of the cyber security and cloud governance strategy, policy, controls and compliance.
  • Act as the SecOps SME across the business, ensuring the specific security controls are in place.
  • Lead the Cloud Operations function, ensuring security and privacy is built in by design.
  • Work with senior stakeholders from various business units to ensure security is communicated and implemented effectively, making security an enable rather than a chore.


  • Previous experience managing and scaling a small technical team of security/cloud engineers.
  • Strong technical background and knowledge of different SecOps environments.
  • Significant experience and understanding of securing public cloud technologies (Azure in particular)
  • Ability to engage with and build working relationships with technical and non-technical stakeholders.

If you're an experienced Cyber Security leader with a technical SecOps background and in-depth knowledge of securing technologies in an Azure cloud environment, looking to join an organization right at the start of their journey as they look to scale significantly, then click apply and we can discuss the ins and outs of the role in more depth.
