Head of Information Security
Jaja is a consumer finance business, launching its first product, a digital credit card, in 2018. Since then it has grown rapidly and has recently completed the acquisition of a multi-£000m credit card portfolio. With backing from several major Private Equity funds, Jaja has an ambitious growth strategy that includes providing consumer finance in partnership with leading consumer brands, with a number of partnerships secured alongside an exciting pipeline of opportunities.
Jaja is on a mission to redefine the consumer finance experience and liberate customers from needless complexity, wasted time, and frustration. Or as we say it, Make Simple. We will delight our customers – making the customer experience simpler, more enjoyable, more intelligent – treating customers fairly and giving them more control of their money.
Purpose of the Role
Jaja Finance is looking for an Head of Information Security to manage a small team of Information Security specialists and drive the strategic implementation of Information Security controls across the business.
Reporting in to the Chief Risk Officer, you will demonstrate a solid understanding of cloud infrastructure and a corporate environment that is based in the cloud and leverages SaaS applications very heavily.
You will create the roadmap and programme for the implementation and development of security controls for the company, and will act as the key security subject matter expert for the business.
The ideal candidate will have previously built and managed successful security programmes in small businesses that are scaling rapidly, preferably in the financial services sector. An understanding of the challenges of maturing controls in a rapidly developing organisation will be key.
Given the size and scale of the organisation you will need to be adept at working with senior stakeholders yet able to roll up your sleeves to support junior members of the team with theoretical and technical challenges.
