What we offer

The potential for growth - This is a great time to join our team of security consultants as we build on our established track record with considerable growth planned over the next 2-3 years.

Huge variety - We work with our clients across many markets including Smart Infrastructure, Autonomous Industrial Robotics, Energy, Consumer, Agritech, Defence, Aerospace, Medical and Health.We deliver technology solutions to these markets, drawing upon technologies such as artificial intelligence, sensors, quantum computing, synthetic biology and across the range of connectivity technologies. These all need to be secured, as do our client’s enterprises when we deliver stand-alone advisory services.You will work across all these areas providing security focussed advice vested in your deep understanding of security technology.

Responsibility – This will depend on your experience, but you will be involved from scoping the approach, setting out what we’ll do for the client and managing the work, to delivering results.  Often you will be working on more than one project concurrently to support the delivery of the following:

Security Risk Assessments based on a good understanding of current threats.

Technology solutions that are grounded in a deep understanding of how they mitigate the threats.This will include projects to develop security technology solutions as well as utilising the best solutions from the market.

Developing system architectures and participating in detailed design reviews in collaboration with engineers from other disciplines

Our consulting activities are centred primarily in Europe and the US, but with a growing client base in Asia. Project work is usually based in the Cambridge UK office but with regular client workshops on client sites. (NB The Covid-19 pandemic is temporarily restricting travel and office-based working so on a temporary basis, much of our business is being conducted remotely. In the longer term we expect hybrid working to be the norm).

What you can bring

You will have a good technical or business degree in a relevant field with demonstrable expertise gained in a consulting or commercial environment. Relevant project management experience is important, whilst sales and business development experience would be advantageous.

You will have excellent team working skills, with energy, flexibility, and a constructive approach to challenges. You will also have a well organised and structured approach to problem solving and excellent oral and written communication.

This role has varying levels of responsibility, but ideally you will have the ability to lead some (or all) of the type of work undertaken by the group and be comfortable working with clients at all levels within our client organisations.
