Flexible working arrangements - Hybrid model
Reporting into our CISO here at BOQ Group (ahem the top dog in Group tech) our Head of IDAM is paramount in building and leading the development of organisational-wide strategies that address Identity and Access Management. You will shape and develop a collaborative team, working in unison to identify and monitor environmental and market cybersecurity trends by pro-actively assessing cybersecurity technology impacts on business strategies, benefits, and risks.
Here at BOQ Group we like to call ourselves the digital bank of the future and let’s be honest, our Group Tech division really is where all the cool stuff is happening! We are a multi-branded business, with our most recent acquisition being the fabulous ME Bank, which makes this role even more juicy – there is so much opportunity to contribute to the overarching IDAM strategic framework whilst elevating and harmonising the maturity of our IDAM systems and process across all of our BOQ Brands.
You’ll make a difference, with integrity and empathy, by rubbing shoulders with our GM’s and Executives to support our IDAM landscape, whilst being responsible for collaborating across a multitude of business units to enable a seamless adoption of security control principles – all naturally aligned with our IT and overall business goals, of course.
This is a challenging and exciting role with a wide range of technical development opportunities – that’s right, we have invested heavily in bleeding-edge security tools to respond to the dynamic global security landscape and to support our business' long-term objectives. Sounds pretty cool, right?
About you
As an experienced IDAM/IAM Leader, you will be a collaborative people-person and an outcome driven professional who enjoys proactively communicating with the business to understand and reach their vision. You are a highly strategic thinker with strong problem-solving skills, supported by an ability to define, develop and manage IDAM program scope effectively.
Having vast experience in end-to-end management of large complex IDAM programs, you have a strong ability to lead, coordinate, communicate and integrate programs and projects from the ground up, taking accountability for their overall success. You’ll have sound knowledge of security architectural principles, along with their application design, and view everything with a Risk lens – especially as we operate in a highly regulated banking environment, therefore adherence to policy, standards, and guidelines must be in your DNA!
Collaboration and partnership come naturally to you, where you aren’t afraid to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in, participating and promoting cooperative working relationships across the organisation.
Working for us is fun and fast-paced, and we are seeking top talent to take us where we want to go. BOQ Group people are easy to spot. They're smart, energetic, full of ideas and passionate about what they do. If this sounds like you and you're looking to join a multi-brand on the forefront of financial services, we'd love to chat!
