Lead Security Operations Analyst – Bristol – £50,000 - £65,000 plus benefits

I am currently working on a newly created role for a major organization who are looking to add a Lead Security Operations Analyst to the team.

The Lead Security Operations Analyst will take charge of an existing internal team of 3 people and will get a unique opportunity to lead a team whilst remaining hands on with the SOC & SIEM work. This is a perfect role for a Senior SOC Analyst who has hit a glass ceiling in their current role and wants to progress their career, whilst remaining hands on and leading exciting projects.

My client has a cyber operations team of 25+ people in total, and this role would report directly to the Head of Information Security. They have heavily invested in several cutting-edge platforms and technologies including LogRhythm, Symantec and McAfee & are using Nessus and Metasploit for vulnerability scanning.

Duties Include:

  • Doing hands on SOC work up to and including malware analysis and incident response.

  • Working with EDR and MDM platforms such as Microsoft Defender and Intune.

  • Training users on cyber awareness and best practise.

  • Working closely with other department leaders including Red Team & Cyber Threat Intelligence.


  • Prior experience conducting vulnerability scanning, creating new alarms and playbooks.

  • A solid technical understanding of cyber security best practise, common attack types and detection/ prevention methods, including OWASP & NIST guidelines.

  • Prior experience using the Microsoft security suite including Sentinel, Defender or Intune.

  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.

This is a great opportunity for an experienced Lead Security Operations Analyst who is looking to take on more responsibility and progress to Team Leader or Manager level within 12-18 months. You will gain exposure to other areas of cyber such as red teaming and cyber threat intelligence and will be given the chance to pursue certifications and exams such as CISM, CISSP or SANS.
