Waterstons is committed to creating and an inclusive, understanding, and flexible place to work. We value diversity, equality and inclusion and encourage everyone to 'bring their whole selves' to work. We believe that a company that works to truly embrace and value diversity, create an environment where everyone from any background can do their best work, and feel valued and appreciated is a better company to work for.

Did we also mention that we’ve been awarded Gold Investors in People for a fourth consecutive time?

This role will be based in our Durham or London office

As a member of our Cyber Security team you will be working with our clients by supporting and implementing a security strategy that directly adds value to their business.

We’re different

We’re looking for people passionate about cyber security and data privacy.

Our people are trained to the highest standards in the latest information security best practice and penetration testing. Security frameworks that we currently use include Cyber Essentials, ISO 27000 series, and the CREST certified penetration testing methodology. This means you’ll be involved in challenging and varied work from day one.

Once you’ve developed your client knowledge, you will have an opportunity to develop a specialism within the existing or future domains of cyber security. This could include: risk management, auditing, technical security architecture, penetration testing, incident management, information governance or data privacy.  Furthermore you will utilise your specialisms to help shape the direction and future offering of the Cyber Security team. We aim to be a leader in the security field, and our projects always utilise the latest technologies, security frameworks and methodologies where appropriate. Your experience in the above isn’t as important to us as your ability to learn and grow.

About you:

  • Thrive on being a trusted adviser to our clients
  • Can convey complex ideas and solutions in simple engaging terms
  • Be a tenacious problem solver with creative and innovative ideas
