Job Description

I am working with a tier two consultancy to help them recruit a Penetration Test Consultant into their team. This role is home based with travel to client sites.

This is an ideal opportunity to develop your consultancy skills by carrying out vulnerability assesments and penetration testing for large corporate clients and government departments. This could be a stepping stone towards obtaining your CHECK accreditation and this company will pay to put you through this.

You will have the following skills: -

  • Proficient in at least one scripting language, Bash, PowerShell, VB, Python etc.

  • Demonstrable experience of the use of penetration tools such as Nessus, Nmap, Metasploit, BurpSuite etc.

  • Solid understanding of the suite of TCP/IP protocols and the OSI model.

  • Ability to adapt to complex ever changing environments and to quickly understand, and exploit to your advantage, such environments.

  • Proven experience of testing web applications, their platforms and technologies and methodologies used to create them.

  • Solid experience of network and infrastructure penetration testing

  • Proven experience of carrying out network device reviews

  • Proven track record of carrying out ITHC's for PCI DSS and PSN compliance.

If you have at least two years commercial experience in carrying out penetration testing and have the CREST and/or Tiger qualification and want to move into consultancy, please get in touch and I will tell you more.
