  • Cyber Security Consultant, Bristol/London Read more Read less

    This role is predominantly a ‘red’ role, requiring an experienced Security Consultant with established penetration testing and vulnerability assessment skills. You will be deployed on a range of short term and longer-term assignments depending on what PGI is contracted to supply. These may include, but not be limited to: large and small scale web application and infrastructure based penetration tests, vulnerability assessments, CE+ assessments and bespoke research assignments. You will also be asked to teach technical content ranging from basic skills (e.g. CompTIA Net+ and Sec+) through to penetration testing skills (e.g. QSTM and CRT level courses), as well as support the development of new collateral for training courses as required. Generally, training and course development will occupy a maximum of 25% of your work schedule but may vary slightly depending on project requirements.

    This is a varied and challenging role and will suit somebody who can work well autonomously, show initiative and be flexible to changing requirements.

    A Security Consultant with at least three years’ practical experience of operating at this level is highly desirable. It is preferable that you have a strong background in web application testing but are not limited to solely web application testing experience.

    Your role will be based at either our London or Bristol office, both of which have been optimized for safe working during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, PGI supports remote working and flexible working arrangements and, depending on the work you are doing, you will not be expected to attend at the office if it is not deemed necessary for the effective fulfilment of your duties.

    Key Responsibilities

    • Performing technical cyber security services as required including, but not limited to: Application and Infrastructure penetration tests, CE+ assessments, vulnerability assessments and phishing campaigns;
    • Delivering high quality projects and reports which meet PGI’s exemplary standards that our clients have become accustomed to;
    • Supporting the sales team by liaising with clients to scope technical cyber security work requirements;
    • Supporting the technical team by ensuring that reports receive the appropriate technical quality controls;
    • Actively supporting other team members by sharing experience and knowledge including, but not limited to mentoring and supporting junior team members;
    • Teaching technical course work as required;
    • Supporting the development of new training collateral

    Person Specification

    The right candidate will demonstrate the flexibility and curiosity to work across a range of technical duties and will also have good interpersonal skills. PGI expects rapid growth in 2021-2022 and it is important that you can work unsupervised or with minimal supervision.

    Technically, this role requires a good understanding of how penetration testing teams function as well as the use of multiple vendor, open-source or licensed penetration testing and exploitation tools.

    Specific criteria are as follows:

    Essential

    • Web Application Testing experience;
    • Technical knowledge of a wide range of toolsets and manual techniques that are commonly required for project delivery;
    • Ability to work to deadlines in challenging environments, maintaining a positive approach to problem solving and possessing effective time management skills;
    • Excellent verbal and written skills, with the ability to present reports to a high standard;
    • Flexible with working hours, working location and tasks to suit client needs, including being able to fit in with client culture; for example, dress codes if required.
    • Relevant experience in teaching technical content, or the ability/willingness to develop this skill.

    Preferred

    • Infrastructure Testing experience;
    • Mobile Application Testing experience;
    • Desktop Application Testing experience;
    • Experience in conducting Build Reviews;
    • Experience in conducting Database Reviews;
    • Experience in conducting Network Security Device Reviews;
    • Experience in conducting Red Team / STAR Assessments;
    • Experience in conducting Social Engineering Assessments (including Phishing Assessments);
    • Experience in conducting Cyber Essentials/Cyber Essentials Plus Assessments;
    • Experience in delivering training courses
