Senior Cyber Security Specialist – Coventry – £55,000 plus benefits


I am currently working on a unique role for a leading educational and medical research facility in the West Midlands who are looking to hire a Senior Cyber Security Specialist to maintain, develop and secure my client’s Cyber Security Centre’s internal infrastructure.


The Senior Cyber Security Specialist will work alongside an existing internal team of 30 people to conduct regular security assessments of their infrastructure and provide expert incident response services in the event of a cyber security incident.


This is a great opportunity to work for a company who are a leader in their field and make a genuine difference to thousands of lives daily.


Duties Include:

  • Develop and improve the Cyber Security Centre's threat hunting capability by conducting regular cyber security 
  • Trouble shooting Linux and Windows operating systems and network devices such as workstations, servers, switches, routers and firewalls.
  • Playing a lead role in the strategic implementation and the design, development, implementation and monitoring of security policy and controls for the appropriate protection of government classified assets.
  • Managing projects with multiple stakeholders and engaging with key people at all levels within the organization.



  • Prior experience conducting vulnerability scanning, ethical hacking and incident response.
  • Prior experience in systems administration of Linux and Windows environments
  • Must be capable of holding a UK National Security Clearance
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.


  • 42 days holiday.
  • 35 hour working week, flexible working hours AND remote working.
  • Healthcare and Dental.
  • Onsite gym


This is a great opportunity for an experienced Cyber Security Consultant / Penetration Tester to move into the end client space because roles like this don't come around very often. Equally, if you're a strong Senior Information Security Analyst / Penetration Tester who has the requisite skills but hasn't had the opportunity to take on a Senior Cyber Security Specialist role previously then this could be the perfect environment for you.

Phone interviews are happening later this week and my client are looking to make this hire ASAP.


If this sounds like a role you'd like to hear more about then call Brian on 0203 854 2230   or email your CV to
