Digital is the newest business in the Cyber and Intelligence Division of Raytheon UK. It delivers Cyber Security and Data Science advisory and technical services to clients through a number of Practices, each focused on a particular market sector and led by a highly experienced Practice Director. Raytheon UK Digital takes real care to understand the unique challenges face by individual clients, working in close partnership to reduce risk and realise opportunities through advisory and technical excellence, supported by an ecosystem of other trusted suppliers.

Each practice comprises highly skilled and experienced consultants, business analysts, security and technical specialists, grouped into bespoke teams to meet client requirements. Additional specialist staff can be drawn from other areas of Digital and the wider Cyber and Intelligence business. The Practice is responsible for identifying and developing new business opportunities in its sector, delivering advisory and technical services to meet identified client needs, and to also identify and pass on new business opportunities to other areas of the Cyber and Intelligence business. 

As a Lead Information Assurance Consultant in Digital you will be an experienced team leader, and will have responsibility for planning and managing client engagements and delivery by either an IA-focused team or a mixed team of consultants, analysts and technical staff to meet client-based outputs and deadlines. You will be responsible for the leadership and development of your team, for ensuring the highest standards of delivery and presentation, and be skilled and experienced yourself in the delivery of technical advisory and technical services. You will also have insight and breadth of experience in the relevant business sector.

Sector Focus

Within Digital there are currently three Practice areas, including Public Sector, Transport and Critical National Infrastructure. As the Digital business develops it is expected that the number of Practices will increase and the scope of each Practice will be varied accordingly, depending on the identified potential in each sector.
We expect that you will have a detailed understanding of some aspects of the sector, and a working understanding across the whole breadth. You will understand the common challenges that clients face, current trends and threats, and where the sector is likely to grow. You will already have professional contacts in some areas and already have practical ideas of advisory opportunities which can be developed.
