You will be given the opportunity to undertake a variety of roles throughout the project lifecycle, working across a wide–ranging set of clients and cutting–edge technologies. This could include providing projects with advice and guidance on Information Assurance topics; contributing to the development of IA strategies, policies, guidance and awareness; planning and managing the delivery of a security work programme; defining security requirements; designing and implementing security architectures; or overseeing the secure development and accreditation of information systems.
You will typically work on client sites, co–located with other project members, including client staff, colleagues and other suppliers. Due to the nature of client side working, regular travel within the UK should be expected. The base office is in Guildford, but it is likely that you will spend the majority of your time working with clients at their sites.

They provide substantial training, including online, classroom and in–house courses, leading to nationally recognised certifications, such as CCP, PCiIAA, CISMP, CISSP, CREST, ISO27001, SABSA, and TOGAF and provide structured career development pathways to help you gain responsibility and influence.

Working either individually or as part of a larger team, you will undertake a number of varying consultancy assignments.

It is essential that you have the following experience:
Experience of complex ICT systems in a technical delivery or consulting capacity;
A good understanding of enterprise information and communications technology;
