Senior Penetration Tester - Malvern

Job description/Person specification

You will join our client's expanding Security Health Check Penetration Testing team that deliver world-class consulting, as well as undertaking service development and sales support activities. Right now, we're looking for Senior Penetration Testers to join our nationwide operations.

As one of our Senior Testers you'll be a hugely important part of our integrated service delivery. You'll be working with a variety of clients and be involved in different parts of the project, from scoping, to solutions design to downstream testing. The roles are varied and challenging, so you'll find yourself engaged in a variety of tasks, including application and infrastructure testing, "Red Teaming", Advanced Intrusion Testing, and cyber and digital resilience.

As well as the opportunity to hone your skills on the job we have a strong commitment to personal development. So, as well as learning from colleagues you'll be able to enhance our penetration testing capabilities through service specialisation and funded personal research. The scope for career development is limited only by your personal dedication and drive.

Required Qualities

First and foremost, you'll ideally hold a current Team Member certificate - either TIGER or CREST - and have deep technical knowledge of hacking and penetration testing techniques, methodologies and tools across all common platforms. Active CHECK Team Leader status is highly desirable although we can support you through the process if needed.
As you're dealing with clients, you'll need to have good communication and stakeholder management skills along with attention to detail and report writing skills. You'll also need great time management so that you can balance scheduled client engagements with directing your own research to keep up to date with the latest vulnerabilities, attacks, and countermeasures.

All our team members have a strong desire to get root, have an adaptable and flexible approach to work, and have a willingness to support each other and the wider team. You'll also need to have or be able to gain UK security clearance and hold a UK driving licence. In return we offer a competitive salary, excellent benefits and a commitment to help maintain a good work/life balance
