Senior SOC Analyst - Cyber Security- £40-60k - Nottingham

Summary :

Role : Senior Security Operations Centre (SOC) Analyst- Cyber Security

Company : Growing Cyber Security Company

Salary : Up to £40-60k + benefits

Location : Nottingham.

Suitable for: A seasoned Security Operations Centre Analyst with experience of managing Junior Analysts and wants to take it to the next level whilst remaining hands-on!

I'm working with a Cyber Security company that is based in Nottingham. They are small now, but plan to double in size in the next year, so definitely one to watch...

I'm looking for a Senior SOC Analyst to look after all the juniors in the team. They want someone who is knowledgeable in Cyber Security, networking and traffic analysis, the process around threat vulnerability identification and management, and mentoring/ management of junior team members...and a real passion/ obsession with cyber security is naturally a must-have!

You'll be doing the hands-on stuff, including:
  • In-depth analysis of network traffic across a variety of platforms and technologies
  • Reviewing current technical and operational/ process capabilities to identify areas for improvement
  • Researching and testing new security tools to make recommendations to be used in their SOC environment

On the management side, you'll be:
  • Maintaining high standards to ensure productivity and high morale
  • Encouraging and aiding creativity, innovation, collaboration, and the professional growth of the SOC team
  • Ensuring customer support/ service levels are kept high.
  • Doing "after action" reviews to identify lessons learned and best practices

To be great for this role, you'll need to know about/ have:
  • A technical degree relating to cyber security, bags of experience in the field and around half a decade specifically in SOC Operations
  • Lots of SIEM experience - including content creation, like rules, alerts, etc.
  • AlienVault and LogRhythm
  • PSTools, Sysmon, Carbon Black, etc.
  • tcpdump/windump, Wireshark, etc.
  • Host and network forensics
  • Threat intelligence consumption and management
  • Pen Testing
  • Root causes of malware infections and proactive mitigation
  • Ideally, relevant security certifications like CISSP, GCIA, GCIH, GREM, CEH, etc.

Importantly, you will likely be working on a shift pattern; this is to ensure that their services are provided 24/7, so you'll need to be flexible on the hours you work.

You'll get to work in a relaxed environment where everyone enjoys each other's company, and who love what they do. It's a cracking time to join them; as they double in size, you'll gain seniority, knowledge, and experience and you'll get to work with more and more intelligent people on the interesting stuff you love; helping people to do the same along the way!

If you'd like to understand the role a bit better and see if it's right for you before applying, feel free to give me a call and I can tell you all about it.
