Deputy Engineer (Resilience and Security)
As Deputy Security Engineer, you’ll play a vital role in the success of an ambitious transformation programme to build a new modern, digitally enabled estate - and help us create the best Estates department in Government.
HMRC is on a journey of change. We’re becoming a modern tax authority, equipped for the future needs of our customers. As part of this we’re creating modern, collaborative working environments and bringing our broad organisation together - from over 170 small, old offices to fewer than 30 modern buildings with excellent and innovative facilities. From building and contract management, to support services and project management, the Estates department has a pivotal role to play.
Identifying security and resilience risks, you’ll develop physical security responses to ensure the continuous safety and security of HMRC’s people, assets and estate. You’ll define standards and contract requirements to establish the most effective, cost-efficient solutions. You’ll work closely with other HMRC and wider Civil Service security professionals to deliver a holistic, systems-based security engineering approach. And, specifying physical security requirements for inclusion in construction and estates service provision contracts, you’ll carry out regular site visits to advise and support local teams and managers.
To join us you’ll need to have, or be willing to gain, IEng status and an industry-recognised security qualification. With a solid understanding of security engineering principles you should also have experience of Threat and Risk Assessment processes, along with the ability to produce technical reports on the management of the security function. In addition, you’ll also need a good working knowledge of all the technical aspects of a layered physical security approach, including control of Public Realm space, Barriers, Access Control, CCTV, IDS and HVM.
