About the role

This is an opportunity to join one of the UK's leading cyber security service providers. As part of their rapid growth, this company is expanding its managed security systems support team, with a permanent role for an office-based senior security engineer. The successful candidate will have a strong attention to detail and an analytical approach to problem solving and trend analysis.

You should have a good understanding of TCP/IP and Linux administration, combined with a thirst for new knowledge. Your experience may not have come directly from your current or previous roles, but perhaps your own personal development.

Reporting directly to the SOC Manager, you will be expected to manage your own workload in order to meet defined SLAs, and continually drive your own learning and development. You should contribute to the SOC knowledgebase, and aim to keep up-to-date with the latest security developments, vulnerabilities and news stories.

The role will involve joining the out of hours rota to provide 24 hour client support, for around 1 week in 6 (with additional remuneration), along with some mentoring and training of junior team members. As an ever-growing company in an exciting sector, there are opportunities to progress and explore other teams and opportunities around the company, including Consultancy (PCI DSS, ISO 27001), Testing (Penetration, Social Engineering), and Incident Response.
