Over the past decade, IT has completely evolved, paving the way for an entirely new technical workforce. This rapid development of technology has surpassed the advances in training for professionals entering the industry, which has led to IT personnel, and in particular, those working within cyber security, becoming highly sought after.
With the emergence of increasingly sophisticated financial platforms, the Internet of Things (IoT) and widespread Wi-Fi connectivity, the need for highly experienced cyber security professionals is greater now more than ever, as security breaches are becoming increasingly more prevalent. Subsequently, engineers are required to fill penetration testing jobs for differing industries at various levels, working for both large and small organisations. Known as ‘ethical hackers’, penetration tester jobs involve finding and fixing weaknesses in IT architecture that could create an exposure to hackers. Therefore, candidates with vast technical experience, rapid response and an ongoing dedication to understanding the latest industry updates are ideal.
At Morson, our IT recruitment team are passionate about sourcing and placing the most suitable penetration tester candidates, and have a wealth of experience supplying personnel for both contractual and permanent positions. Due to our dedication, expertise and experience in this field, our IT recruitment division has seen a 100% growth year on year, which has enabled us to build even more on our offering to candidates.
Each candidate has a wealth of support at their disposal, including assistance with Security Clearance – often needed for cyber security positions - alongside legislation for positions abroad and much more. At Morson, we understand the changing face of IT and continue to evolve with the industry, which aids the successful placement of penetration testers and other IT professionals into new, exciting positions.
