Contract Type

Do you love implementing security measures to architectural designs? Are you able to create and improve security frameworks? Would you thrive in an environment where you get to work on multiple projects within a revolutionary bank? If yes, then we may have the role for you!

As a Security Architect, you will create and look after our security architecture that meets regulatory and compliance requirements for Metro Bank. You will be part of our amazing domain architecture team, and make sure designs suggested by our solutions architects have implemented the correct security measures. Your role is really important, as it makes sure all new technologies we move ahead with have the right security in place, to protect all our wonderful customers and colleagues.

So what would you be doing?...

• Supporting the Head of Architecture in developing security architecture strategy and roadmaps
• Understanding business requirements and drivers in order to provide the correct security measures to designs
• Working closely with colleagues to understand their requirements
• Contributing to designs submitted by Solutions Architects to make sure that all security measures are fit for purpose and meet the current and future needs of the bank
• Providing feedback on security standards and practices during design authority meetings


You need to be this kind of person…


• Passionate about providing unparalleled levels of service and convenience for customers

• Able to work and learn quickly in a fast paced, fun and dynamic environment

Prepared to stick at something – we wonder what might be the issue if someone has jumped from job to job as we want people who are prepared to learn and grow 

• Care about doing a great job and exceeding expectations with the quality of what you do

• Able to work and learn quickly in a fast paced, fun and dynamic environment


And... we are a bank so risk is a part of everything we do. We love people who take responsibility, do the right thing for customers, colleagues and Metro Bank and have the courage to call out any concerns.


We always support colleagues to develop their skills.  But to be successful in this job you really do need to already be able to do most of these wonderful things...


• Understand the risks associated with your job and what that means for you, Metro Bank and all our stakeholders

•You will be working as a Security Architect, with plenty of exposure to security design
•It would be wonderful if you are able to deliver flexible, reliable and supportive security models that are compatible with internal and external systems
•In order to be amazing in this role, you will need to have a certification in one of the following; CISSP, CISSP-ISSAP or PCI Security
•We would really love for you to be able to analyse solution designs and implement security architecture to it
•You should have strong knowledge on application security, network security and data security


Diverse teams really are the best teams. We know that candidates (especially women, research tells us) may be put off applying for a job unless they can tick every box.  We also know that ‘normal’ office hours aren’t always doable, and while we can’t accommodate every flexible working request we are happy to be asked.  So if you are excited about working with us and think you can do much of what we are looking for but aren’t sure if you are 100% there yet… why not give it a whirl? Please note that sometimes we may close a job earlier for applications if we are inundated with amazing candidates.. Good luck!
