Purpose of the role
Here within our expanding Security Health Check Penetration Testing team we deliver world-class consulting and undertake service development and sales support activities. Right now we’re looking for Penetration Testers to join our nationwide operations.
As one of our Testers you’ll be a hugely important part of our integrated service delivery and be involved in different parts of the project, from scoping, to solutions design to downstream testing. Not only will you work on a variety of high-assurance clients but you’ll also fulfil a variety of activities, from red teaming, enterprise penetration testing, the offensive elements of purple team engagements, social engineering, physical testing and stand-off electronic assessments.
As well as the opportunity to hone your skills on the job we have a strong commitment to personal development. Along with 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.
The roles are client-facing so you’ll need to have the flexibility to frequently travel to client sites and be comfortable liaising at both a management and technical level. You’ll also need to be able to access the team base in Malvern on a monthly basis.
First and foremost you’ll need to 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 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.
We look for outstanding technical people, creative and analytical thinkers, decisions makers, influencers and excellent communicators. Join us today.
