  • Director of Security Access and Programs

    Here is another interesting posting. What exactly to they mean by "Ten or more years of experience in an applicable risk management environment"? As some people of this forum already know, most of my experience is in the public sector. The county I worked for has a Risk Manager, but that isn't what I did. I have been a police officer, deputy sheriff, and now law enforcement officer. Is this a private sector generic term for anybody that works in public safety? I Googled it, but I really didn't find anything that refers to risk management environment. I do have my emergency management certification, so maybe I will apply and see if that works for them.

    Once again, no salary range is mentioned. Does anybody here have any thoughts on that?

    This is kind of an odd ad. They ask for "appropriate certifications" but don't say what those are. This looks like a high end "suit job" - not sure why they want you to be armed (or qualified to be armed), unless there is some executive protection involved (which there may be). You'll have to know some IT security as well as the physical stuff.

    "Risk management" is both a generic and specific term, hence the confusion. Even the title is kind of weird - "Security Access and Programs." I don't know much about US Bank's corporate culture, so I can't tell you how they operate. I'd say try to find an organizational chart or similar, either through research or somebody you know that works there - seeing who reports to who might give you a clue as to what they're looking for.

      It's a bank management position. They won't disclose more unless you are in the running.

        No you do not have the qualifications.

            I think where the frustration lies is a lack of clarity. There are a lot if niche positions where you don't have to list the qualifications needed; the people in that specific industry know what's required and what level of degree is needed. Corporate security is that gray area where they want someone with security expertise, but they also want a person who is in that industry, so they understand the goals of the company.

            I have to agree with Soper - this is really a bank manager job, but they're hoping they can find someone exactly like their last guy. But don't give up - I say this with heavy sarcasm, but one of my previous supervisors made a career of b.s.-ing his way up the corporate ladder to a $70,000 a year director position. He really had no experience (or even knew what he was doing), but I guess charm and good acting skills go a long way.

            So, my true point is don't let ads determine alone what you do - if you think you might be a good fit, apply.

              Bingo! Always apply if you think you meet at least 3/4 of the requirements.

                'or EWE' = better than grandma PC skills, but doesn't need to be equal to 14yr old "gamer"

                'Ten years ARME'= you can handle yourself in a white collar setting without 'house breaking'

                App Certs= you haven't let your Guard Card expire, or your DL

                The rest of qualifications is all Fuzzy Stuff and some HR manager on the crack pipe trying to sound like his HR job is real. it ain't.

                You don't need to know Unix for this job, just how to not loose the keys to the vault.
