Job Description

Our clients look to us to provide solutions to their most complex information security challenges, in order to protect their most critical resources. They trust us with this great responsibility because of the quality of our people; leaders in their field, inquisitive and capable of rising to the most complex of challenges.
We are looking for people who want to work for a consultancy at the cutting edge of information security. We pride ourselves on our unique and meticulous approach to penetration testing in order to ensure that our clients get the most value from it, providing tangible improvements to their security. We empower our consultants to utilise all of their technical ability on engagements, be creative and really get into the mind-set of an attacker in order to find vulnerabilities that others simply can't.
A Consultant within our Assurance team has the opportunity to build upon an existing knowledge of information security and penetration testing. Consultants will generally hold the CREST CRT or CHECK Team Member (or comparable) qualifications, or if coming from a non-penetration testing background, be able to demonstrate an equivalent level of technical expertise.
Person Specification and skills
  • Understand and apply a range of manual penetration testing techniques
  • Apply Context’s testing methodologies to find vulnerabilities in a range of systems, including web applications, network infrastructure and mobile applications
  • Developing skills and knowledge in new areas of technical information security, and progress towards industry qualifications such as CREST
  • Work independently on projects, liaising with other testers, clients and others where necessary
  • Write reports and technical documentation to a client-presentable standard
  • Help improve the methodologies, tools and processes used by Context every day
