One of the key areas of our business is our testing division. Our Kitemark symbol is recognised internationally as a product and service quality certification and is used to define products where safety is paramount.
As part of a new initiative, technology products are now being included in the testing process. As such, we’re now seeking a Cyber Security Consultant to join our team in Hemel Hempstead.
- Salary of up to £45,000 DOE
- Flexi time
- 27 days’ holiday (with potential to increase to 30)
- Pension scheme

This brand new role for our business is an exciting opportunity to take your cyber security experience in a new direction. You’ll have the chance to make sure the products that go to market are safe, secure, robust and can stand up to today’s security threats.
You’ll join our testing organisation which is recognised by 82% of the UK population and trusted by 88% of that. This means you’ll work with some high profile brands at the cutting edge of the technology industry and will be making a real difference to the end products.
So, if you’re ready for your next challenge and are eager to take on something different, this is the role you’ve been waiting for.
As the Cyber Security Consultant, you’ll report on the results of testing activities for internet-connected products which have undertaken penetration testing.
Working closely with a team of Testers, you’ll identify the sources of failures and report these back to the manufacturer/client. You will omit details of why the product has failed or how it can be improved as this is protected market knowledge and we must be seen to maintain impartiality.
Our Kitemark is a prestigious and highly sought-after quality mark with accompanying high standards. You’ll ensure that testing is rigorous, thorough and in-depth and only products of exceptional calibre are certified.
Additionally, you will:
- Process certification applications in a timely manner
- Review technical reports
- Recommend certification enhancements, additions or updates
- Deliver a range of projects to financial, customer and quality guidelines
- Represent BSI with external bodies
- Analyse market developments to support innovation
- Act as an account manager for selected key clients
To be considered as a Cyber Security Consultant, you’ll need:
- An awareness of cyber security-related legislation and European Directives and how to apply such knowledge to existing cyber products
- Experience within an IT hardware and/or cyber security environment
- Excellent verbal and written communication skills and the capability to communicate technical issues to a wide audience, including clients with limited technical knowledge and clients who do not use English as a first language
Experience of certification techniques or similar certification bodies such as BSI would be beneficial to your application. In-depth knowledge of quality requirements detailed in relative international good-practice documents such as EN 45011 or ISO Guide 65 would also be an advantage. Knowledge of a range of international, European or British Standards and/or other relevant documents and procedures relating to IT and/or cyber security would be equally favourable.
