Junior/Graduate Security Consultant
Summary of the Role
The Junior Security Consultant is an entry-level role within the technical team, reporting directly to the Chief Technology Officer (CTO), but working day to day with a senior security consultant. The primary objective of the role is to:
- Assist with the management of internal security & general IT support duties
- Respond to and manage L3 client tickets through to resolution, under the support of a senior security consultant
- To develop an area of expertise around a number of technologies in order to perform remote and onsite professional services engagements for clients
The Ideal Candidate
An ideal candidate will be comfortable with both written and verbal communication and will understand the need to adapt to different audiences depending on the situation. They will have a structured approach to learning new technologies and will be able to document and communicate this with others. They will be looking to develop a broad knowledge of different technology areas within IT Security and will use their existing knowledge of IT to apply it to security. They will be willing to take on projects on their own, seeking support and assistance when required.
The candidate will regularly:
- Be asked to perform internal office IT support, with activities such as:
o Release an email incorrectly blocked by the mail filtering solution
o Reset another member of staff's AD account
o Assist another staff member with basic IT support
o Ensure critical systems are available and healthy
o Manage the vulnerability management process
- Respond to support tickets within their sphere of experience (L3 only)
- Be asked to cover support tickets in areas outside of their core area of experience, invoking vendor support where required.
- Be required to undertake self-directed learning and development on strategic vendors at a detailed technical level such that they feel comfortable in performing installation, upgrades and changes at a professional services level. This may require the completion of online/face to face training and/or certification.
- Work under broad direction, personally managing their day to day tasks according to urgency and priority.
The candidate will occasionally:
- Be asked to help scope professional services to clients
- Be required to support clients through remote, or on-site professional services delivery.
- Be asked to support the organisation's ISO27001 management processes
- Manage technical relationships with a number of key vendors, keeping current with developments and communicating these to the rest of the team.
- No specific vendor certifications are required, however evidence of the ability to study for and pass vendor certifications would be an advantage.
- Evidence of recent self-study in security is expected.
- Security+, CEH or other entry level security certification is an advantage.
- A bachelor's degree in a related subject is preferred.
Infrequent travel is expected to visit clients and vendors (typically 1/2 days per week). The majority of meetings will be in central London or the South East - though rarely there may be the need to travel to client locations elsewhere in the UK or abroad.
Office working hours are 9am to 5:30pm, Monday to Friday. There may be a need to support an on-call rota in the future, outside of working hours. Occasional overtime may be required outside of working hours to support client requirements.
The candidate will hold a full UK driving licence, and have access to a car, and will remain so throughout their employment.
