Senior Security Consultant (Penetration Testing)

  • Reference IP29838-JS
  • Salary £50,000 - £80,000
  • Location Tewkesbury
  • Job type Permanent

Boris from GoldenEye hacked into the FBI, John McClane saved the US from hackers and who can forget Jeff Goldblum being able to upload his virus into an Alien infrastructure. Within the industry, we know these are slightly wrong portrayals of the work Penetration Testers do; a lot of the time is spent with clients, testing infrastructures, applications and staff awareness over and over, and over, and over again. IntaPeople are currently helping a consultancy based out of Cheltenham / Gloucester to find a Senior Consultant, with a focus on Penetration Testing to join their team.

After working within larger organisations, our client saw the pitfalls of sending people up and down the country on a weekly basis and decided to try something different; to create a better work / life balance for their consultants. As it stands, 50% of their time is spent of client sites, the rest can either be office based or they can allow consultants to work remotely. The work is led by the customer, not a sales team pushing unrealistic expectations, so you will be involved in pretty much every aspect of the work lifecycle from start to finish.

We are looking for Consultants who can provide high quality expertise across all aspects of testing, can add value with the reports they provide, can participate in events and, above all else, can be helpful for their customers. Within the position you will be delivering Penetration Tests, testing application security, help with proposals / bids and also handling bespoke technical projects based on customer requirements.

In order to be considered for this role we need candidates with the below skillset;
* Experience with Penetration Testing across Infrastructure and Applications; ideally across multiple layers.
* Ability to work well within a team and autonomously, to have the drive to want to develop yourself and the company further within the industry.
* Experience gaining certificates in CREST (CCT INF / APP, CCSAS, CCSAM etc), OSCP, OSCE or any other industry recognised accreditations.

That’s pretty much it really, they just want a new Consultant who’s at the top of their game, wants to develop further and who comes across well. If you’ve spoken at events, created Whitepapers and developed more Junior Consultants that’d be great but not essential as it’s something they could help give you more exposure to.

Consultants will also need to complete Government clearance processes (SC Minimum) so please ensure this is possible before applying. The company’s office is commutable from either Cheltenham, Gloucester, Bristol, Bath, Tewkesbury, Malvern or Worcester however if you live further afield that is fine as they are open to home / remote working.

If you want to join this company and become their new Boris Grishenko (you will have to provide your own ‘loud’ patterned shirts and pens for twirling) then get in touch.
