A Network Security Engineer vacancy has become available with a leading Aerospace business based on the south coast in Hampshire to help support the growth of the security division in its current expansion plans.

The Network Security Engineer will be part of team of 5 people with varying levels of experience in an approved project worth in excess of £300million.

What's more, is that you will get the chance to regularly travel to Germany and Italy just to keep things interesting!

What experience do you ideally need?

  • You don't need to have a specific certificate in any particular firewall/routing/switching vendor, however, experience across multiple ie Cisco, f5, checkpoint for example…or any of the others are going to be considered.
  • You need to be able to converse accurately and effectively with key stakeholders and external customers as this is a customer facing role.
  • Someone that can understand coding and interpret it. You don't have to be able to write code although that would be nice, but understand it as a minimum.
  • Can you configure switches? Do you think you are pretty well educated on firewalls, endpoint, threat solutions etc? Good, because they will like that also!
  • Vulnerability tools…have you used them before to assess network threats?

One thing we need to point out is that this is working on a critical project with government and commercial funding, so that does mean people will have to be security cleared. That means candidates will need to be British.

So, above were just some of the things we will want to talk to you about but don't worry if you don't have it all. You'' be working with other teams such as pen testing, audit and risk folk and you will report into the IT Security Manager.This company are a huge business that can provide many avenues for you to continue your development and will support you on that journey to IT Security domination!
