About FTI Cybersecurity EMEA

  • We help clients solve complex cyber security challenges. Our clients include some of the world’s biggest brands, who we advise about some of their most sensitive cyber challenges. Discretion and confidentiality are central to how FTI operates.
  • Our Team Leadership has national security heritage at its core; discretion and judgement are key values for our teams.
  • Our work is varied, often for clients in distress. Our clients value our responsiveness, agility and expert-driven impact. We look for technical expertise and aptitude, and the personal skills to fit these scenarios.
  • We operate as one global cybersecurity P&L. Collaboration, both within our team and with other parts of the business (such are Strategic Communications, Technology and Data Science), are central to how we operate. Our engagements typically draw on expertise from across our business and geographies. 
  • After a period of extensive growth, FTI is looking to build out its EMEA cybersecurity practice. We have a phased three-year plan to attract and develop the right talent to be part of this journey. We are the start of this journey, and we are looking for individuals comfortable within a “start-up” environment, within the security of an established corporate setting.  
  • We value talent. We look for aptitude. [Our alumni include noble prize winners.] We recognise the need to attract, retain and develop talent. We value true diversity of opinion and background. We understand the importance of working environments. We believe in providing our people continuous professional development to maintain our expert brand.

Your role

  • You will perform a wide range of cybersecurity engagements in a fast-paced, deadline-sensitive environment.
  • You will perform specific technical tasks to help triage breaches, analyse data quickly and to be able to understand underlying causes and issues.
  • You will work as part of multi-functional teams to help clients manage and navigate breaches, and the operational, reputational and regulatory impacts they bring.
  • You will support and develop your skills around cyber incident response and investigations, developing both your technical and written skills to provide accurate and concise reports for a sophisticated client base of top-tier law firms, financial institutions and corporations.
  • You will maintain or develop current knowledge of industry trends, threats, methodologies and core technologies in order to assimilate client needs and help decide appropriate courses of action.
  • You will be able to participate in assessments of threats, risks and vulnerabilities, applying a combination of technical skills and critical thinking.
  • You will help improve how we work, identifying areas for improvement and making suggestions to expand our portfolio of services, or improve our efficiency and effectiveness of delivery.

What you will bring

  • Experience: as a consultant, you will already have some life experience and preferably with some variety. You will likely have one (or more) of the following:
  1. A strong degree from a top university with perhaps some work experience in research and analysis (such as working in corporate intelligence, law, academic research, market analysis or similar). Note, we are open to a degree in any subject so long as clear research and investigative skills are demonstrated. We can help develop your technical skills and experience.
  2. Demonstrable technical work experience, a versatility and level of comfort across multiple technologies, and demonstrable problem-solving skills. You may have worked in systems administration, networking or application development. You will be comfortable working with scripting languages (eg Python, PowerShell or Bash), and be able to show how you bring these skills to solve problems you’ve not seen before. 
  3. Work experience as an incident responder or technical investigator at another leading brand corporate intelligence, cyber security or forensics companies, or within the services (military, law enforcement or government). You may have worked under legal privilege or will be familiar with the concept. You may have specific cyber certifications (eg OSCP/E, GIACs, CREST), and might also be on a professional development programme (eg CIISec, BCS, IEEE, GCHQ or NICE accredited cyber programmes).
  • Aptitude: you will have a natural curiosity and desire to learn. You’ll show passion for specific areas related to cyber and be able demonstrate wider thinking and well-informed reading about them. You may have published articles, have your own development project or simply follow specific topics within choice media. You will show the latent ingredients of being able to grow into an expert in your journey with FTI. 
  • Critical thinking: you will be able to demonstrate the difference between technical and business success. You can make an informed, fact-based and objective analysis of an issue to come to a judgement. You can operate with a level of ambiguity and make logical assumptions when dealing with unknowns. You’ll be able to outline premises and a hypothesis, and construct objective arguments to support and disprove before coming to a conclusion. You may have a natural inclination towards understanding root causes and can demonstrate this in your academic or professional work. 
  • Dynamism: you will be a self-starter who can work on varied assignments often within tight timeframes. You will be comfortable in raising concerns or questions on a task in an efficient manner, and to be able to reach out for guidance when you feel uncertain. You will enjoy being given context, boundaries and an objective, and will take professional pride in delivering. You will relish the opportunities provided to you within an agile environment. You will suggest improvements or solutions where you think things could be done better. 
  • Communications: you can communicate clearly, concisely and with understanding of your intended audience. You will understand the value and importance of our written reports. You will feel comfortable raising questions when you are uncertain. You may have experience working internationally, and with other teams that are not immediately part of yours.
  • Collaboration: you will recognise that the greatest success is mutual. You will show self-awareness about how you best operate, and the ability to reflect on how others like to operate. You will be able to demonstrate an emotional intelligence to be able to adapt, personal resilience, and a strong team ethos within FTI’s relatively “flat” hierarchy.
