We're committed to your growth, offering mentorship, continuous learning opportunities, and a supportive community that thrives on your success. Your Waterstons journey will be filled with meaningful experiences, impactful projects, and the chance to shape your own future.

We have a question for you: Are you looking for a job? Or do you want a career in which you can make a difference, where people are put first, where collaboration, empowerment and innovation are encouraged.

As a member of our Cyber Security team you will be working with our clients by supporting and implementing a security strategy that directly adds value to their business.

A bit about you

We like to think our culture is our greatest source of strength. We are building a team and business with a shared set of values and our clients tell us they can feel the difference.

We’re looking for those who are hungry for a challenge, those keen and willing to learn new things, to develop and adapt. We’re looking for curious souls and those excited by the prospect of solving intricate client problems. If you're eager to roll up your sleeves, tackle challenges head-on, and help bring about positive change, this is the role for you.

We work in a collaborative environment where diverse perspectives come together to spark innovation. Your ideas won't just be heard – they'll be celebrated and nurtured.

We’re looking for people passionate about cyber security and data privacy.

What you’ll do

As a member of our Cyber Security team, you will be working with our clients by supporting and implementing their security strategies that directly add value to their business.

Our people are trained to the highest standards in the latest information security best practice and penetration testing. We will provide you with opportunities to work with Security frameworks including Cyber Essentials, ISO 27000 series, and the CREST certified penetration testing methodology.

Your client work will be supplemented by a 12-month learning & development programme to ensure you gain a wide range of experience and skills within your first year of employment.

We aim to be a leader in the security field, and our projects always use the latest technologies, security frameworks and methodologies where appropriate. Your experience in the above isn’t as important to us as your ability to learn and grow.

You will be supported by your team, team leader and mentor to help you develop your skills along the way while collaborating with the wider business. This is will all be supported by our unlimited training budget, which empowers our people to take on as much (or as little) learning as feels right.

This role will be based in either our London, Durham or Glasgow office.
