Penetration tester – TigerScheme / CREST Team Member


Job Description/Person Specification


A company who experts in defence, aerospace and security are looking to recruit an Information Security Consultant for their Penetration Testing team. You must have a current Team Member certificate, either TIGER or CREST (other certifications will be considered). Active CHECK status is desirable.


As a Penetration tester you will have the flexibility to switch between application and infrastructure testing and you will also be involved in the “Red Teaming” service, Advanced Intrusion Testing, developing skills which would normally fall outside of traditional penetration testing. Funded personal research is also on hand.


As a client-facing Penetration Tester, you must be highly experienced and credible operating at both technical and management levels. You will be given the opportunity to work with a broad range of client organisations, alongside some of the best consultants in the security industry.


This opportunity boasts the benefits of being a smaller team within a large company enabling them to have an agile environment with the backing of the wider organisation.


Pentesters here get to see a broader range of projects than some other pentest teams and gives possibilities to do project secondments within the wider organisation which makes for engagement variety and working on some really cool and different projects. 


Required Qualities

  • CREST or TIGER certification
  • UK driving license.
  • Strong desire to get root.
  • Good communication skills.
  • Willingness to travel to customer sites in the UK and Europe.
  • Excellent report writing skills coupled with an acute attention to detail.
  • Deep technical knowledge of hacking and penetration testing techniques, methodologies and tools across all common platforms.


Desirable Qualities

  • Active CHECK status
  • UK security clearance to SC or DV level.
  • Ability to scope security assessments and deliver them on time and within budget.
  • Evidence of on-going personal development in the penetration testing space e.g. research and development.


The position comes with a competitive salary, excellent benefits and a commitment to help maintain a good work/life balance.


Salary is flexible paying up to £60k
