Posted a month ago

At Deputy we’re on a mission to change the way the world works & we are looking for fantastic people to help us do that. Our mission is to simplify shift work, with a future state vision to enable thriving workplaces in every community.

Deputy is a SaaS Workforce Management Product company. HQ'd in Sydney (AU), with offices in Melbourne, London (UK), Atlanta and San Francisco (USA). We’ve helped hundreds of thousands of people across all industries in 70+ countries save time and money managing their hourly workforce so they can focus on what they do best, and be amazing.

Currently, our employees are predominately working from home and this role will also be remote for the time being. We anticipate employees will be returning to the office, in a flexible capacity, during 2021 as appropriate & when it is safe to do so.

Although we are predominantly a Sydney based company, we are totally happy for someone to be based anywhere in Australia & work fully remotely. #LI-Remote


We are looking for a Lead GRC and Risk professional to own and manage Deputy’s Governance, Risk and Compliance Programs during our next stage of growth. The Lead Consultant for Security GRC and Privacy will have a strong ability to influence and establish close relationships with key business stakeholders across the organisation in order to manage the overall governance framework, support compliance and privacy initiatives and manage Deputy’s security and technology risks within Deputy’s risk appetite.  


Like many roles in startups, this is a varied position that will work across all aspects of GRC and Privacy. Deputy is growing in Australia, the US and Europe and our compliance needs cover domains such as ISO27001, PCI, GDPR, NIST and the Secure Controls Framework. Deputy is an ISO27001 and PCI Compliant company, and this role will have ownership of maintaining these programs, as well as leading Governance and Risk Management processes throughout the business. We also want to grow into SOC and CSA Star - there’s a lot going on, and more you can ask us about in the interview.
