    • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.

Desirable skills and experience:

  • Mobile application testing
  • Hardware testing
  • PCI-compliant testing
  • API testing

You may be looking for your next professional challenge or the chance to develop a high-performing penetration testing team within a rapidly expanding and supportive environment.

The nature of the role is such that you must be able and willing to undergo security clearance and must be eligible to work in the UK without visa sponsorship.

We are committed to staff development and provide ongoing training for all our employees. With our current market growth, there has never been a better time to join us.
