Are you looking for challenge and variety in your working week?  Our clients constantly need new solutions to the most complex of business and user needs.  As a business we thrive by staying at the forefront of technology and our digital security business is no different.  We invest in our people and technological understanding, to ensure we can provide the best solutions. 

Role Description

You will work as a Senior Consultant within our Consulting team, providing advice direct to clients as well as internally to our product and service development teams. 

You will support and help secure a varied portfolio of new product developments. This is our core business, where we provide clients with ground-breaking solutions at pace.  Here we need security solutions that meet the needs of our client’s products now and through-life.   In this capacity you will lead on threat-based risk assessment. You will then provide pragmatic security solutions in the form of security architectures and advice on technology solutions. Crucially, when providing solutions, you will draw on your and the wider team’s deep understanding of the actual benefit the technology provides.

In addition to supporting our product developments you will provide strategic advice direct to clients. In this role you will work with clients who will have questions like “should I buy this technology company who provide this unique security technology?” or “I am considering investing in this security solution, should I?”. 

Hence, we opened the description of this job opportunity with the question “Are you looking for challenge and variety in your working week?”.  As you can see, you may be working one day with a client making critical investment decisions and the next on a product development using Quantum technology.  Increasingly, these products are networked Internet of Things (IoT) devices, where we combine our sensor technology skills with Artificial Intelligence or other data sciences to create a digital service.  It all requires security and we hope you want to help solve these challenges.
