About the role

As a Security Analyst II for Automated Access, you will be at the forefront of developing and delivering our strategy for automated access, reducing tension for the business and making it easy for colleagues to get the access they need within our audit framework. You’ll face into the business, working with multiple stakeholders to understand their access requirements and then deliver solutions that allow access to be delivered with minimal effort, while balancing other needs such as least privilege and review requirements.

You’ll work with a cross functional team of Security Analysts, Product Managers and Engineers to build key metrics for measuring the effectiveness of Automated Access processes and will then work together to identify and deliver improvements to these metrics to ease effort for the business.

You’ll need to work with stakeholders both within and outside the team to agree improvements and manage improvements to working practices, ensuring that where possible any improvements are handed over to business as usual teams to maintain.

This role will require a strong capability in building relationships and balancing business need with security risk. You will be expected to be an expert on best practice for applying access automation controls and keep abreast of developments in the wider world.

You will be responsible for

Whilst specific responsibilities will be dependent upon the changing needs of the Tesco business, the following provides an overview of the role's key responsibilities and measures: 

·       Demonstrate a deep knowledge of our automated access controls and apply your experience to existing and new issues, acting as an expert guide for less experienced team members

·       Continuously work to improve your own performance and widen your knowledge, seeking and responding to feedback from colleagues and managers, and supporting others to do the same

·       Build and maintain key metrics that ensure we are aware of our current performance and communicate these effectively

·       Identify opportunities for improvement and agree prioritisation of these opportunities

·       Work collaboratively to deliver improvements, demonstrating good planning and cross-functional co-ordination

·       Contribute to a positive team culture with a culture of openness and knowledge-sharing, while encouraging curiosity and innovation

·       Build strong collaborative relationships within and outside of Technology

This role will best suit an individual who enjoys working as part of a team, is well organised, outcome-focussed while pragmatic, and a lateral thinker with an inquisitive mind who is motivated to make change for the better and, most importantly, puts our customers first while always protecting our business.

You will need

We’re interested in the unique experiences and capabilities that you can bring to the role and our team, so we’d prefer that you tell us what you have to offer instead of giving you a long checklist.

The role requires large amounts of collaboration both inside and outside our organisation and across multiple time zones, so we expect you’ll be experienced in working with large and diverse teams and be able to demonstrate that you can quickly form relationships and build trust.

We hope you’ll have previously worked as part of a large organisation and want to be part of an environment where we encourage team members to deliver their best and grow as individuals and as a team, while ensuring an inclusive and welcoming environment for colleagues.

We’d expect that you’ll be an excellent communicator, both written and verbally, and are able to simplify complex concepts and represent the team across the organisation. Flexibility, ability to plan and organise, responsiveness and creativity are key attributes we value, along with a strong eye for detail and diligence.
