WHO WE ARE

S-RM is a global intelligence and cyber security consultancy. Since 2005, we’ve helped some of the most demanding clients in the world solve some of their toughest information security challenges.

We’ve been able to do this because of our outstanding people. We’re committed to developing bright, curious, driven individuals who want to think critically, solve complex problems, and achieve success.

But we also know that work isn’t everything, it’s about the lives and careers it helps us build. We’re immensely proud of this culture and we invest in our people’s wellbeing, learning, and ideas every day.

We’re excited you’re thinking about joining us.

WORKING IN CYBER AT S-RM

Our Cyber Security division is the newest and fastest-growing part of S-RM. The cyber sector is always evolving, and our Advisory, Testing, Incident Response and Forensics practices are in more demand than ever.

We’re building a team to meet this challenge. This means we’re quick to respond, innovate, and improve. We don’t get too hung up on hierarchy or bureaucracy. If your ideas are good enough, we’ll empower you to implement them. If you’re the best person to talk to a customer, you’ll get that opportunity, regardless of the title in your email signature. And when you need a hand, your team will always have your back.

We also don’t believe there’s a typical cyber security professional. We’ve built a team of intelligence analysts, technical specialists, software developers, investigators, risk managers, and more. You’ll always find a range of perspectives and expertise to help you learn and grow.

If that sounds like your kind of team, we’d like to hear from you.

THE ROLE

Our Cyber Advisory Associates lead the majority of our consultancy engagements. They work closely with our clients to understand their challenges, innovate solutions and deliver findings. Our aim is to become trusted advisors to our clients.

Our Associates are project managers and people managers, as well as consultants. As a leader within S-RM, you will have the opportunity to develop junior colleagues, drive improvements in products and services and contribute to practice strategy.

As such, our Associates are critical to S-RM’s success.

You will work across the full spectrum of cyber risk management and governance projects, helping your clients to build cyber resilience, enhance their understanding of the threat landscape and become better prepared to face dynamic and evolving security risks. Typical activities and projects include:

  • Adapting security frameworks to create products that get to the heart of client questions
  • Developing remedial roadmaps to improve client security

  • Advising clients on cyber security strategy and achieving the best return on investment
  • Communicating complex technical language into easy to understand guidance for executives

Other features of the role include:

  • Range of opportunities: in addition to deepening your Advisory expertise, you will have opportunities to broaden your security awareness into penetration testing and incident response projects and be able to learn from colleagues across the business
  • Variety of project work: the opportunity to work on a huge variety of client sectors, geographies, levels of cyber maturity and challenges
  • Internal initiatives: all of our consultants contribute to internal training initiatives to share knowledge and upskill colleagues. You will have the opportunity to become a thought leader, develop product and services and contribute to team strategy
  • Training and development: at least one external course per year to further your professional development and career aspirations.
  • Line management: when you’re ready you will have the opportunity to take on the management and mentoring of junior colleagues
  • Flexible working practices
