Can you create, maintain and ensure the implementation of IT security governance in an ever-evolving company? Then join BESTSELLER IT and become a key player in our mission to constantly increase the IT security level for our company.

We offer you the chance to have significant impact on how IT security should be integrated with the agile organisation, which we have transformed into over the past years.

The team
You will be joining the dedicated IT Security team within BESTSELLER IT. We collaborate with all teams in IT as well as other functions across our global organisation to constantly increase our security level and reduce risk.

Our responsibility covers the global operations across our value chain – that includes our over 2.700 stores, international markets, partners, vendors and many more. With us, no two days are ever the same, and together we strive to have fun and learn new things every day. We welcome new ideas and make room for experimenting, not only with new technologies, but also with the way we work and collaborate across BESTSELLER.

The job

  • Taking lead on all audit related processes, both internal and external, to ensure continuous improvement of our security level

  • Creating, maintaining, testing and running disaster recovery plans as well as business continuity planning
  • Liaising with relevant internal and external stakeholders to build a coalition of people focusing on achieving our ambitions for IT security
  • Participating in the day-to-day operations in the IT Security team, including handling incidents.

Your profile
What matters most to us is that you are motivated by IT security and working with governance processes. You see the value this brings to our business and how this helps us reduce risk. You are a self-starter and reach your goals through excellent planning skills and disciplined follow-ups. You know how to analyse a situation and create solutions to any given problem.

Enabled by your great people skills, you form and maintain strong working relationships with colleagues across the entire organisation. You have open for change and willing to adapt to an everchanging organisational environment.

Last, but definitely not least, it is important that you want to learn and grow - professionally as well as and personally.

  • Understanding of governance mechanisms in large organisations
  • Ability to create written reports and communicate efficiently in writing and speech
  • Proficient user of Microsoft Office 365
