Information Security Analyst

I’m interested


Leeds - St John's

Job description

This is far from being your average Information Security Ops role. Here at William Hill, as we grow globally, we face new challenges and threats to our systems.  We encourage our Analysts to take ownership. You'll have the opportunity to build monitoring and automation, and build yourself a great career at the same time.


About us

 We make a huge investment in everyone, offering great career development opportunities. Our people are at the heart of everything we do and we offer a fast-paced environment where we have fun, celebrate success and give you all the tools you’ll need to be your best self. It’s not just our colleagues we look after – we’ve got a responsibility to our customers too and we work hard on our ambition that nobody is harmed by gambling.


Your role in the team

You’ll be integral to protecting the William Hill brand, responding to incoming security incidents and improving our security posture. You will proactively hunt for anomalous activity, identify and report on current vulnerabilities.  In this role you will be an influential member of our Technology team, advising non-technical users on the best security practices.

Incident response skills are key to this role, you will detect, investigate and complete root cause analysis on emerging threats to avoid reoccurrence. You’ll need to exercise good decisive judgement and have a solid understanding of potential business impact in everything you do.

You will work closely with our Level 1 Security Operations Team, building relationships and responding to escalated incidents. We take pride in delivering the best possible Sportsbook and Gaming platform to our customers. In our high availability world, delivery is constant and our systems need to be protected and fully operational 24/7. You’ll support the delivery lifecycle, making sure changes are delivered with minimal impact to our customers.


Skills needed

It's essential that you can bring us  broad security experience, with specialist expertise in Security Operations. You're an expert in securing and monitoring Web Applications, and ideally you'll be confident securing and monitoring Public Cloud Environments (AWS) too.

Your role will be busy and proactive, so you'll need to feel comfortable working in a fast paced (and sometimes high pressure) environment. We genuinely take pride in fighting off attacks though, and we have fun doing it. Your experience of proactive Threat Hunting will be invaluable. It would be great if you can back up your operational knowledge with clear understanding of PCI-DSS and how to apply the principles to your role.

You'll deal with stakeholders across William Hill, so strong communication skills are essential. You'll join our out of hours on-call rota and will work weekends from time to time, so it's essential that you're flexible and reliable.


What we offer


We’ll welcome you onboard with 25 days holiday (not to mention an extra day for your birthday), a rewarding bonus scheme, an attractive pension package, healthy gym discounts and a staff benefits scheme. Plus, our season ticket loan and handy Metro Card loan will save you money getting to work and getting around town. And if you see the journey to work as part of your fitness regime, you’ll just love our Cycle to Work scheme.


William Hill in Leeds


Right in the middle of the creative heart of the UK sits our Leeds office. Leeds itself is a buzzy, busy place to work and live. A hub for tech, digital and gaming companies – there are also five universities right on our doorstep. And away from work, we’re close to the Yorkshire Dales and of course have got a competitive sports scene with Leeds United and Yorkshire Cricket and Rugby just up the road in Headingley.
