Assurance Consultant (UK)

Full-time, UK

We are looking for people who want to work for a consultancy at the cutting edge of information security. We pride ourselves on our unique and meticulous approach to penetration testing in order to ensure that our clients get the most value from it, providing tangible improvements to their security. We empower our consultants to utilise all of their technical ability on engagements, be creative and really get in to the mind-set of an attacker in order to find vulnerabilities that others simply can't.

A Consultant within our Assurance team has the opportunity to build upon an existing knowledge of information security and penetration testing. Consultants will generally hold the CREST CRT or CHECK Team Member qualifications, or if coming from a non penetration testing background, be able to demonstrate an equivalent level of technical expertise.
