Referrals

Our focus and energy is spent building and developing new and existing relationships and, as a result, we obtain many referrals from within this niche industry.

CV Tips

Many candidates find it difficult to write CVs in this climate with varying advice and expectations. This may mean that you will have more than one CV if you are looking at differing roles and areas. Many candidates believe that you have to keep your CV to 2 pages – that’s fine for someone a year out of University or in a profession that has volume candidates, but we would expect most candidates in cyber security or risk to have a CV of 3-4 pages, highlighting projects and bullet pointing key skills. What we can tell you is that our clients want to see candidates define and detail their experience to the most relevant areas for the job.

Remember, cyber security is so varied and clients requirements can range from basic to complex levels with just one role title that you need to ensure your actual skills and experience detailed on the CV are relevant to the role you are applying for - if it's not on the CV, the client WILL assume you don't have it! It is easier to remove detail than to create it so always try to keep an updated version as your role changes from year to year.
