Cyber Security Consultant £35k–45k
We are looking for a Cyber Security Consultant to join the team, ideally moving from a junior role. The consultant should aim to have at least 3 years of experience in IT/Cyber Security as you will be trained to become a Cyber Essentials assessor amongst other duties.
What does it cover?
• Providing general security consultancy to customers
• Becoming an expert in a number of frameworks i.e. ISO27001, Cyber Essentials, and PCI DSS
• Performing remote security management services for our portfolio of customers
• Protecting from viruses and other malware
• Keeping your devices and software up to date
What are we looking for?
Outstanding customer service skills
Customer service is paramount. If your technical skills aren’t quite there, but you have great customer skills, the hard part is already over. Working with customers is at the core of our business and is one of our key principles.
The strive to deliver quality
There is no shortage of work in the security space and most organisations race to swamp engineers and consultants. We ensure that the balance is right to deliver quality and hire engineers who strive to deliver quality at all times.
At Periculo, we always learn from our mistakes. Everyone makes them but the important part is learning from them. As a business, some of our biggest improvements have come from the smallest mistakes and we engrain this in all our employees.
What are the benefits?
We run a number of benefits for employees, with on-site facilities such as a functional fitness gym, break-out space, a Barista coffee machine, a company bonus, and 25 days holiday.
Can I work from home?
All employees do flexible working. The office is still the hub of the company and, ideally, we expect all our employees to work 2 days a week from the office so that we can get together as a team. If this doesn’t suit you then still apply and we can talk.
Do you offer training?
Training is one of the most important things we offer in our cybersecurity jobs. All employees have a personalised training plan based on their career path and have an unlimited training pot if the training is relevant.
I don’t think I have enough experience. Is there any point in applying?
Apply! Send us a good cover letter and CV regardless of your experience.
We have trained a number of people with 0 days of experience in cybersecurity who are now fully-fledged consultants. We hire for the people primarily.
What equipment do you use for work?
All employees receive a new MacBook depending on their role (engineers get a more powerful machine), ergonomic mouse, magic keyboard amongst others. Sorry if you are a Windows user, but we prefer MacOS for our day-to-day work.
Do you allow time for research?
Yes, we do. We try and resource employees so that if they get their work done they have time for research and extra activities. We don’t want to throw more work at people who free up their time for learning and giving back.
