Job Details

Role description

Our international clients include government and defence organisations focussed on their national cyber mission.  We are looking for candidates with a strong understanding of cyber security operations which they can apply to helping customers improve their operations, gaining full value from their use of monitoring tools and threat intelligence.

The role is to work onsite with international government clients, primarily in their security operations functions.  This may involve working in classified environments.  The role draws on technical skills to work with in-country teams to get the best use from their tooling, and is likely to have a significant coaching and upskilling element, as well as creating processes to help build effectiveness in the team. 

This role will involve international travel, so candidates need to be willing and able to travel for extended periods.


  • Support customer with day-to-day security operations in a coaching capacity
  • Understand Threat Intelligence and its use in an operational environment
  • Use and support client teams in gaining value from their Security Operations technology
  • Deliver security operations training to clients as required
  • Support incident response to national scale incidents in a coaching capacity
  • Establish and build relationships with stakeholders
  • Formulate strategy for improvements to security operations, and communicate in business language to a range of stakeholders.

  • Basic Python and/or scripting skills
  • Working with a range of security tooling/technology
  • Strong understanding of security architecture, in particular networking
  • Detailed understanding of threat intelligence and threat actors, TTPs and operationalising threat intelligence.
  • Experience in investigating complex network intrusions (by state-sponsored groups or targeted ransomware attacks).


  • Client side consulting, including stakeholder engagement and the ability to communicate insights and concepts to others (including briefing skills and report writing)
  • Coaching mindset: the longer term role is not to do the job for the customers, but to mentor them to do it themselves. 
  • Security process development
  • Able to understand and adapt to different cultures and hierarchical structures.
  • Self-starter and capable of independent working


  • Software engineering experience
  • Penetration testing skills
