Job Description

The Ashdown Group has been engaged by a successful cyber security business, to help with the recruitment of an experienced Pen Tester, to join their rapidly growing team.

You will be responsible for the provision of consultancy primarily focused on penetration testing and vulnerability assessments but also working in partnership with our GRC team supporting clients with compliance and security.

There will be on-site engagements with a wide range of clients performing Cyber Essentials Plus, Infrastructure penetration testing, web application penetration testing and security consultancy.

You will provide consultation, implementation and management of protective monitoring systems and react to security incidents to provide client assurance.

Although the office is based in Cheltenham, you will be able to manage your own diary and work a mix of client site visits, remote and office. They can take a flexible approach depending on how far someone lives from the office.

The ideal candidate will possess the following skills and experiences:

* Excellent IT SECURITY knowledge and experience
* Experience as a Security Consultant
* Have experience of PENETRATION TESTS and vulnerability assessments
* Application, infrastructure and web security pen testing
* Excellent customer facing experience and strong communication skills

Ideally you will be certified in one or more of the following: OSCP, GIAC GPEN, CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional), CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker), CPT . Candidates without the certification but with demonstrable commercial work experience and a drive to develop their experience within security, will be considered. Any further IT Security related qualifications would also be an advantage, but NOT ESSENTIAL.

This is an excellent business to join with a great mix of clients and big pipeline of work coming for the foreseeable future. As a company they very much support the on-going development of their staff and there will be further certification and training opportunities within this role.
