As this is a senior role, we want your business brain as well as your technical hacking skills.

o Scoping
o Financial and risk management
o Delivery of testing and the oversight of testers
o Review of deliverables (QA)
• Coaching and developing team members through sharing of experience and knowledge.

• Continuous development of self and team, including managing client feedback.
• Developing constructive client relationships, both inside and outside of KPMG.
• Developing an understanding of KPMG’s broader offerings to enable identification of business opportunities

• Proven experience of successfully managing and delivering testing

Advantageous:
• Knowledge of NCSC CTAS and CPA Assurance Schemes
• Knowledge of working in secure environments (List X facilities) and accredited labs (ISO17025)
• Research and Development experience
• Threat Intelligence experience
Qualifications and Skills

Qualifications are a good way to demonstrate knowledge but are not the be all and end all, our team is made up of a large number of individuals with diverse backgrounds who all share the “hacker mindset”.
If you have the experience then we want you to apply. Didn’t do a degree in information security? A-Levels weren’t as good as you hoped. Haven’t attended every SANS course going, we don’t mind!
For this role we only have two formal requirements.
• CCT-App or CCT-INF.
• UK Government Security Clearance – the ability to apply for and hold SC is required, DV is advantageous.
Above all, KPMG is looking for someone who is passionate about helping our clients (including the UK Government) with their cyber security challenges. In return, we are committed to helping you enjoy the role and develop your skills and career within the KPMG network.
