Job Description

Application Penetration Tester/Security Analyst

Unix/Penetration/Firewalls/Incidents/Virtualisation/Cloud

E-Resourcing has a fantastic opportunity to join a small internal security team based in South Oxfordshire, serving a global business. Our client is looking for a seasoned security professional with at least 5 years experience in the Cyber Security sector and extensive knowledge on the sector (OWASP Top 10/SANS Top 20), news, trends and vulnerabilities.

The ideal candidate must also have:

  • At least 2 years experience of performing hands-on application security penetration testing on a daily basis, applying security misuse cases to break into systems, bending the logic etc. (not just running tools). This is the modern approach for penetration testing, it includes intelligence recognisance and proof of exploitation.
  • The ability to work with developers (in house and third party developers) to explain the issues found in security testing and see that the fixes are applied.
  • Hold a professional security qualification ideally CEH, CSSLP or CISSP but others are acceptable.

Further to the above, the role will involve active investigation of incidents/incident management, creation of security baselines and delivering security awareness, so any experience in these areas would be a big bonus.

This is a Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm role (no shift work!), giving the candidate an excellent opportunity to improve their work/life balance. It is also office based and a permanent role with a salary on offer up to £55,000pa, however there may be some flexibility for the right candidate.

My client is unable to sponsor applicants so please only apply if you have the right to work in the UK.

If you have the required experience and you would like to find out more, please contact Katie Parker in confidence on 01372 748 444 / katie.parker@e-resourcing.co.uk
