My clients Security Health Check penetration testing team is looking to recruit an IT Security Consultant. You must have a current Team Member certificate, either TIGER or CREST. Active CHECK status is desirable.

As a client-facing professional, you must be highly experienced and credible operating at both technical and management levels. You will be adaptable and flexible in your work and a positive attitude is essential. In return, you will be given the opportunity to work with a broad range of client organisations, alongside some of the best consultants in the security industry.

  • Willingness to travel to customer sites in the UK and Europe.
  • Excellent report writing skills coupled with an acute attention to detail.
  • Deep technical knowledge of hacking and penetration testing techniques, methodologies and tools across all common platforms.
  • The energy to use time between scheduled engagements constructively to direct your own research in order to keep current with vulnerabilities, attacks, and countermeasures.
  • The ability to effectively manage time and workload on individual and team engagements, cooperating with clients and managing stakeholder expectations.

Desirable qualities:

  • Active CHECK status
  • Willingness to support the sales team to develop engagement opportunities.
  • Ability to scope security assessments and deliver them on time and within budget.
  • The willingness to work with other parts of the organisation to provide benefit of knowledge base and experience within information systems security.
  • Evidence of on-going personal development in the penetration testing space e.g. research and development.

The position comes with a competitive salary, excellent benefits and a commitment to help maintain a good work/life balance.

You will be required to undertake regular work on customer sites as necessary. Working from home is possible, where appropriate, although the expectation will be for you to attend the office when not deployed to customer locations.
