I’m working with one of the UK’s leading accountancy and business advisory consultancies. Their IT/cyber division is experiencing significant growth due to their continued success and excellent reputation. As a result, they’re looking to appoint a Cyber Security consultant to strengthen their team. Our client is financially very stable and due to the size of the team you have the visibility and the chance of progression that perhaps wouldn’t come with a larger consultancy. Not only that you’ll be working alongside the Senior Consultants and benefit from their years of experience working in the industry.
Our client is committed to providing budget for employees to develop & further their skills & qualifications. Their employees consistently rank ‘personal development’ as their main reason for staying and joining and staying with our client.
The Role of the Cyber Security Consultant:
The role would suit a Security Consultant a solid understanding of the industry frameworks. You’ll have the ability to take both a holistic view of the customers business and possess the experience required to carry out cyber security assessments and gap analysis against various frameworks. You’ll back yourself to define and propose the security requirements and controls required to mitigate identified security risks whilst considering technical to business balance.
This is a client facing role and as such you’ll need great communication skills and possess the ability to report emerging cyber risk to technical and non-technical audiences to influence information security direction and strategy.
This is an opportunity for you to work across multiple industries and drawing on the full range of your professional abilities whilst receiving the support and encouragement to upskill along the way.
Some of the Skills Required by the Cyber Security Consultant:
- Knowledge of assessing against and implementing information security frameworks and standards such as the ISO 27001 and NIS Directive and PCI DSS.
- Ideally have experience working for a consultancy such as the big 4.
- Experience conducting security risk assessments, advising on risk, and giving risk mitigation solutions and advising on a security road map.
- Experience carrying out cyber security assessments and gap analysis against various frameworks.
This is a hybrid role – currently remote, however site visits will be necessary as require, and safe to do so. Again, you will need to visit the client’s office a couple of times a week – the offices are based in London, Birmingham, and Manchester
