Senior Security Analyst

Location: Leeds, United Kingdom

The Role

For global security teams, getting ahead of issues and incidents that threaten the safety and security of their people and assets has always been essential. But as the pressure mounts for organizations to take a stance on political, environmental, and social issues, GSOC faces physical threats from new oppositional actors and groups, as well as unprecedented volumes of digital chatter and new online spaces to monitor. Crisp offers organizations a scalable solution for monitoring these actors and groups in real-time, providing the early warning signals to help them prepare and react to potential threats.

The core focus in this role is to act as a security subject matter expert within the Human Intelligence (HUMINT) team. Supervising a group of analysts on shift as well as using your research skills to help enrich our data collection and management, you should have proven coaching abilities and be ready and able to share your knowledge both internally and externally.

The nature of security threats means we are looking for candidates who can clearly demonstrate an ability to make quick and sound assessments based on customers needs, producing high quality outputs under time pressures. You will enjoy a fast paced environment and have an eye for continuous improvement, feeding back and helping to embed people, process and technology changes to improve efficiency and quality of delivery.
