The role

We have a dedicated Red Team within our business and due to continued growth we are hiring a Lead Security Consultant to be part of our Red Team.

In this role you will be expected to be able to operate multiple engagements at once, orchestrating and supporting your team to deliver on agreed objectives. You will be expected to work in challenging environments and deliver under pressure, while maintaining good working relationships with customers. Whilst the role focuses on a high level of competence in technical delivery, it also requires an equally high level of aptitude for consultancy and management, influence and presentation skills. As a Lead Security Consultant - Red Team, you will be required to manage and mentor people while working with and debriefing executive teams, company boards or regulators such as the Bank of England (BoE) and Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).   

Every year, we deliver a large number of red teaming engagements for a variety of prestigious clients. The typical delivery time frame is in the region of weeks to months. We start with a threat intelligence phase in order to ensure maximum realism and then we move on to a multi scenario attack phase. Finally, we place great emphasis on detection and response. We see the blue team as our customer and so we go on site to conduct an incident response maturity assessment with them at the end of the engagement.
