About you

To succeed in this role you will be an experienced and approachable team player, with great interpersonal and written communication skills.

As a Junior Information Assurance Consultant, you will report to our Principal Consultant. You’ll be working at client sites, and from our office in Leeds. We’ll also need you to travel up-to 50% of the time, either on solo engagements, or as part of a team.

Your day-to-day function will be to:

  • Work as part of a multi-disciplinary field and support team, delivering client work according to agreed schedules;
  • Provide advice and guidance on national and international security standards as well as implementation assistance;
  • Support the Principal Consultant in the planning and execution of complex assignments;
