The Launch Program applicants will need to be resident and have the right to work in either the UK or US.


The role

In the role you will join a condensed 2-month training program before entering the full workforce as a fully-fledged Cyber Security Consultant working within our information assurance and penetration testing team.

A Unique Experience… You will be part of a team starting a journey within one of the most intensely exciting, technically driven, growing industries around! Nettitude’s Launch Program offers incredible opportunities to immerse yourself in a range of deep dive technical cyber subjects that all focus on giving you the best possible introduction into Penetration Testing. You will learn not only how to hack traditional infrastructure and web applications but we will expose you to the rigors of reverse engineering, cryptography and threat intelligence taught by our seasoned principal security consultants who hold the highest industry qualifications and accreditations.

An Innovative Approach… At Nettitude you will be immersed in an environment where you are trained in a robust curriculum through a series of foundation, core and advanced topics, giving you the ability to start your career as a security consultant off on the right foot. Many junior consultants learn how to hack without the understanding of how this applies to the world of finance, defence or business in general. Or how it would impact a company’s ability to detect, defend or respond. At Nettitude you will learn how to hack with a real world perspective.

 What you’ll be doing:

  • You will learn and progress through our comprehensive cyber assurance training program, getting a chance to train, shadow engagements and, once you are ready, lead your own.


  • You will join group based penetration testing, working alongside some of the most highly experienced and qualified testers in the country.


  • Spend time within our Research & Innovation Department, working with and on projects directly related to Nettitude’s core mission and your personal interests


  • Spend time working directly with client relationships through our sales and account managers.


  • No week is the same within Nettitude’s Launch Program!  Each week is different, and the approach, subjects, pace and style are deliberately changed to ensure you can adapt and progress to your best potential. These are all backed up with practical workshops, hands-on real-world experience, shadowing and project work. Towards the end you will also be given the opportunity to lead engagements with real clients under the supervision and guidance of senior consultants.


Key skills:

Our Launch Program is designed with the following in mind:

  • It’s for junior penetration testers, career changers or anyone else who has some experience with the offensive side of the cyber security industry but would like some additional training before performing their own engagements. 
  • We select individuals based on a number of data points that favour strong aptitude and demonstratable experience or knowledge of the industry.

Successful individuals will likely be able to demonstrate one or more of the following:

  • Have completed a degree, course or certification in something cyber security related
  • Have written a blog related to cyber security
  • Have demonstrable motivation and self-development, perhaps through a home lab setup with vulnerable machines, having competed in CTFs, or similar
  • Belong to a security focused group, e.g. at university, or in the wider industry (e.g. OWASP chapter participation, etc.)
  • Have attended or contributed to community conferences in some way
  • Have contributed to software projects, potentially including their own small projects
  • Have previous experience in a junior role in a cyber security organization
  • Have experience in a client facing role and good soft skills

What we offer

  • We are a people-focused, high-performing, high-trust managed security services team. We truly pride ourselves on our investment in people, meaning you’ll always have opportunities to develop yourself and get involved in developing others.


    Salary banding:


    $85,000 - $90,000 p/a 


    The range of benefits we offer include:


  • Medical, Dental & Vision Insurance
  • Generous vacation time and paid holidays
