Henry Nicholas are supporting an internationally recognised, industry leading company who are going through a rapid stage of growth within their Cyber Security division.

We are looking to engage with mid - senior level (2+ Years experience minimum) penetration testers with a strong background in client facing/customer engagement practice as well as technical hands on penetration skills.

The nature of the role means a large portion of the work can be carried out remotely, with occasional days in the lab, based in Hemel Hempstead.

The Opportunity

With Cyber and Information Security being a dominant feature within daily life today – this is an area that is on everyone’s radar. Do you want to be part of a team that will make a difference in anticipating risk and building resilience? Are you looking for an opportunity to work on a wide variety of exciting projects as part of a talented, supportive team?

The role is based within our Cyber Security and Information Resilience (CSIR) team with a secondment for a fixed period of time into the “Internet of Things” Lab where you will be carrying out hardware hacking and IoT penetration testing on a variety of devices and ecosystems, as well as internal and external testing, web application, web services and mobile application penetration testing. The work in the IoT lab is highly varied and includes testing against industry best practice or schemes on a variety of connected devices, including home automation, security systems and safety systems. Following the completion of the secondment within the IoT lab, you will become part of the CSIR Penetration Testing team with a focus on delivering high quality penetration testing for our clients across multiple verticals.

As there is a client facing aspect to this role, excellent written and verbal communication skills will be vital. With varied assignments working alone or as part of a team, your security skills and understanding of risk will ensure improved security for our clients.

Ideally, you’ll have a minimum of two years of security assessment experience and have a strong technical background coupled with a curious nature. An interest in IoT, hardware hacking and general penetration testing is required.

This role will be home or office based depending upon location, and for the duration of the secondment, will typically require around 40% of your time to be spent in our lab facility in Hemel Hempstead and will have a mixture of remote working, office working and some travel to client sites. Outside of the IoT lab secondment, the role will be either home or office based with work on client site as required.
