Security Consultant

  • Applications are considered on a rolling basis
  • Manchester

We have openings for all grades (Associate to Senior) of consultant in our London, Manchester and Basingstoke offices. Your role will involve carrying out penetration testing and security assessments right up to targeted attack simulations which may span several months.

We’d also love you to do some research to ensure your skills remain relevant in a fast paced world of security.

How you spend the rest of the time that’s not working with clients is your call. MWR has a commitment to research. Based on their skillset and inclination, our consultants get a percentage of their time dedicated to security research. Whether it is used to investigate new software, hardware or protocols, we encourage out team to push the boundaries of what is possible!

What we need...

We solve complex cyber-security problems on a daily basis and to do that requires an interesting mix of skills. To be successful at MWR and help our clients with their challenges we know you’ll need the following:

A passion for security!

You love computers, you love security and you love hacking things and solving problems. If this wasn’t your job it would be your hobby.Technical excellence. You know your subject area, but you’ll also know what that subject area is without us needing to say. You don’t just know how to run a port scan using nmap, you could code up your own tool to perform the port scan if you really needed to.

Self-motivation

You’re not going to be told what to do all the time. You are capable of figuring out what spending time working is of benefit to MWR and our clients and then run with it. With great freedom comes great responsibility and you also seek out guidance from those around you when you need it.

Communication skills

How can we add value to our clients organisations unless we can tell them what we did, how we did it, and how they can fix it? But communication also extends to sharing your knowledge with your colleagues and the wider industry.

Skills & Requirements

Who we think will be a great fit...

We want people with at least one, preferably two, of the following:

  • WebApp Testing. You know your way around burp, and can do SQLi without using SQLmap.
  • Infrastructure Testing. You understand that this doesn’t just mean running Nessus.
  • Mobile App Testing. You know that Drozer is the best tool ever for Android testing and you’ll also know what you’d use for testing on the other major platforms.
  • OSCP & OSCE won’t hurt your chances, CEH might.

Our projects are most definitely not run of the mill tick box exercises, we don’t spend half our lives sat in datacenters and we don’t have arbitrary unrealistic constraints or timeframes imposed either. Our clients really care about security and recognise the value that letting you work to your full potential brings.

If a career at MWR sounds like the thing for you or you want to find out more then apply below; alternatively give someone in the team a shout, or message one of the team on social media. Our team is always up for mingling with other like-minded individuals to give you a greater insight into MWR and a chance to find out if it is the right place for you. Don’t make the mistake of assuming that MWR is just like any other pen test company…
