As a rapidly growing company in a dynamic sector, ECSC is always interested in hearing from individuals who are keen to develop their skills and knowledge in cyber security. We have a range of roles in our Security Operations Centre, along with other field-based opportunities.
At present, ECSC has a dedicated in-house recruitment department and, as such, we are not looking to engage the services of any third-party recruiters at this time. We will update this page should this change in the future.
Based at our Security Operations Centre in Bradford, West Yorkshire, our Security Engineers are at the heart of the many services we provide.
From the precise management of our managed services, to the fast-paced challenge of breach responses and investigations, and the development of custom Linux-based solutions, the role is varied and rewarding, with a learning curve that matches the ever-changing threats.
Ideally, applicants should have a degree in a computer security related subject, although individuals with no formal qualifications will be considered if they possess relevant experience and skills. Experience with, and keen interest in, Linux is an advantage, as this is the platform used for most of our research and development. All applicants should have a genuine interest in cyber security.
Given the nature of our services, you should be prepared for some out-of-hours activities - after all, attackers don't work standard office hours.
If you think you have what it takes to join our team of dedicated security professionals, please send your CV to email@example.com.
Incident Response Service Director
£70,000 to £100,000 (dep. on skills & experience)
Are you an experienced cyber security professional, with extensive incident response experience, looking to further develop your career in a senior management position? Do you have the capability to develop innovative new service offerings and manage a dedicated and professional team?
Following a successful flotation at the end of 2016, ECSC Group plc is undertaking a period of rapid expansion and large scale recruitment.
The position of Service Director for the incident response team has become available due to expansion of this service offering. The successful individual will report directly to the Managing Director and take responsibility for:
- Coordinating all incident response engagements, with direct involvement in major incidents.
- Training and development of the incident response team.
- Research and internal development of new tools and techniques to support incident response and investigations.
- Post-incident client liaison and follow-up.
- Ongoing review of process and associated documentation.
Due to the nature of incident response, the Service Director role has an element of 24/7 on-call responsibility and you must be prepared to travel to client sites (usually in the UK) at very short notice and, and in some cases, stay for a week or more.
When not on client sites, the role will be based at the ECSC UK Security Operations Centre, in Bradford, West Yorkshire.
ECSC has a track record of successful incident response, including solving major incidents for a number of high profile brands. Our support includes:
- 24/7/365 Security Operations Centre engineer availability for initial response.
- Dedicated managed service devices for incident detection and investigation.
- Forensic investigation capability.
- Specialist consulting and testing team available to support investigations and post-incident development.
Our Incident Response team are also responsible for conducting routine ECSC Cyber Security Reviews. These utilise a custom methodology to report an organisation's current risk profile, and its ability to prevent and detect cyber security breaches, to senior managers and directors.
In addition to a very competitive salary, the company offers a generous employee benefits package, including company car (or allowance), share options, 25 days' holiday, company pension scheme and private healthcare.
