About this job

Our mission is to make the world safer and more secure. And our core strength is the expertise of our people. We are committed to developing the future generation of cyber scientists, analysts and professionals. And we are always keen to hear from talented and experienced people who wish to join us in our vision to be the leading cyber security advisor.

Are you looking for your start in the Cyber Security industry?

Are you passionate about technology/IT and looking for a new challenge?

Due to impressive growth within our managed services division, we are looking for a Cyber Monitoring Analyst to join our team in Leeds.

Whilst experience within the cyber security will be beneficial for this role, it is by no means essential. Instead, we like to see individuals with passion for the industry and ambitious in their career.

If you have a good foundation knowledge of IT, networking, infrastructure and/or cyber security, and you are looking to break into the world of cyber security, this could be the role for you.


What will you be doing in this role?

We provide a range of managed and hosted services delivered from our UK based Security Operations Centre (SOC), which operates 24/7, 365 days a year.

As a Cyber Monitoring Analyst you will work with our team of over 30 accredited security experts to deal with over 200 million log events daily and provide support for over 5,000 network devices. Other responsibilities include:

  • Monitoring global IDS, Network Intruder, Firewall, DDoS detection and mitigation, availability and SIEM platforms looking for potential threats, vulnerabilities and indicators of compromise.
  • Provide Incident remediation and prevention documentation and recommendations to customers based on defined procedures and analyst experience.
  • Provide customer service that exceeds our customers’ expectations at all times.
  • Initiate escalation procedure to counteract potential threats, vulnerabilities and threat actors.
  • Providing assistance to Senior Cyber Security Analysts on Threat Hunting engagements.

Please be aware that this position is on a 24 x 7 x 365 shift basis. After an initial training period, you will be placed into a shift team.


Who are we looking for?

As this is a training opportunity, previous experience in the cyber security industry is not always necessary. More than anything we are looking for somebody who is passionate, eager to learn and hard working.

Nevertheless, knowledge/experience of common network protocols and Windows and Linux based operating systems will be beneficial.

Additionally the ability to stay calm in highly sensitive and high pressure incidents is a bonus.

The following certifications are desirable. Successful candidates that do not possess these certifications may be tasked with working towards them at the beginning of their employment:

  • CompTIA Security+
  • CompTIA Network+
  • Degree in related field.
