Could you be the full-time Cybersecurity Bid Manager we’re looking for? 

Your future role
Take on a new challenge and apply your cybersecurity expertise in the new field of Digital Mobility. You’ll report to the Regional Cybersecurity Director UKI/SPP, and work within a close-knit and agile team that is part of the rail industry’s largest and most successful cybersecurity organization. Care to make a difference? You’ll ensure that tender cybersecurity requirements are identified and that solutions are defined and costed to achieve security outcomes for customers that benefit the safety and resilience of the railway. Day-to-day, you’ll work closely with teams across the business, including project cybersecurity managers, cybersecurity product specialists, and quality, safety and engineering teams.


We’ll look to you to:  
•    Be the cybersecurity interface to bidding teams in UK&I (across all Product Lines), and to cybersecurity platform colleagues worldwide.
•    Participate in Tender Launch Workshops and other key tender meetings to ensure that cybersecurity activities are aligned with the tender planning and that inputs are provided in a timely manner.
•    Analyze tender documents, and local laws and regulations, to establish the full set of cybersecurity requirements for analysis locally, and by Platform colleagues, in the Clause-by-Clause analysis.
•    Facilitate internal cybersecurity governance meetings such as the Cyber TDR or Cyber QCD, achieving a GO in advance of the respective tender meeting.
•    Align cybersecurity quotations with the “gabarits” and/or any applicable RefLib, ensuring that all gaps are costed and included in the quotation, and that the technical solution and costing is optimized from both technical and cost perspectives.
•    Procure necessary commitments on cybersecurity tasks, deliverables and schedules and confirm that associated budgets have been checked, are achievable and agree

•    Excellent verbal and written communication skills.

On a more personal level, you will also need to be:

•    Adaptable and open to change: IACS cybersecurity processes and standards are new and may be subject to change; others are in development. You will need to remain current and embrace the changes that the topic is bringing.
•    Self-motivated with a desire to learn.
•    Able to work independently and interact with a broad cross-section of personnel to build consensus; and
•    A strong team player, with effective interpersonal skills.

•    Enjoy stability, challenges and a long-term career free from boring daily routines.
