We are looking for a new Cyber Security Operations Unit Manager, within GCSB’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).
The Cyber Security Operations Unit Manager is responsible for ensuring the delivery of the NCSC’s advanced detection and disruption services to organisations of national significance. This includes the ongoing lifecycle management of existing cyber security capabilities, as well as the design, build and deployment of new, cutting-edge technologies that enable the NCSC, and New Zealand, to stay ahead of rapidly evolving cyber threats. Overseeing highly motivated teams of software and infrastructure engineers, and support by the NCSC’s Technical Director for Mission Engineering, the Unit Manager plays a pivotal role in enabling the NCSC to achieve its strategic and operational objectives, and to deliver value to our customers.
Further, and as a manager within the NCSC, you will have shared responsibility for the implementation of GCSB’s wider cyber security strategies, and will assist in directing and managing system-level cyber security matters in New Zealand. As a member of the NCSC’s leadership team, you will be able to make a valuable contribution to senior management decision making both within the NCSC and the wider GCSB.
While this is a technology-facing role, pure technologists need not apply.
We are looking for a well-rounded people leader, who has a passion for delivering value to customers and for creating a high performing team environment:
