  • Explaining to risk owners and stakeholders the causes, likelihood and potential business impacts of information risks throughout the information system lifecycle.

 

Why Apply? 

Practical, real-world impact: as the consultancy does not deal with private companies, you will not be working for deep-pocketed CEOs; your work will have a direct impact on making various UK public functions more efficient, seamless and productive! 

There is a clear and structured career progression path to senior consultant in as little as 2 or 3 years, with increasing autonomy and opportunity to manage your own team.

As this consultancy is a medium-sized enterprise, you’ll be getting much more focussed attention on your work and progression within the company, and you’ll also get a lot more exposure and mentorship by senior members of the company due to the flat office structure.

Other perks:

  • Regular socials (previous events have included a murder mystery party and white water rafting!)
  • Bi-annual discretionary bonus  
  • Open, flat structure – the MD sits in the office with the team           

 

Can I Apply?

The consultancy firm are looking for someone who: 

  • Has (or is studying for) a PhD or master’s degree in a STEM subject.
  • Does not have a dual-nationality and must have held a British passport for a minimum of the last five years.
  • Achieved AAA at A-Level, and 1st Class degree                
  • Logical, systematic approach to problem-solving – must also think creatively and laterally to identify the best solutions
