From our offices in London and New York, we work with businesses across financial services, commerce & industry, and professional services throughout Europe, Middle East and North America.

The Division 


Barclay Simpson has one of the UK’s most established cyber security recruitment teams with a proven track record across cyber security, information security, IT security, corporate security, data privacy and technology risk management.


The security division was established in 2001 and is a recognised name by clients and candidates alike.


We have security recruiters in both our New York and London office and operate on both a contract and permanent basis.


Our team places candidates from Analyst through to Managing Director and Global Heads of Department on both a contingent and retained basis. We are well networked within financial services, large corporates and consultancy firms. You will be joining an experienced, highly networked and knowledgeable team in a key role.



The Opportunity


The permanent security division is highly successful and viewed as a market leader in the UK. The strength of our desks and client base has allowed us to create specialist sector and vertical desks.


We are seeking an experienced penetration testing and / or application security recruiter who will be responsible for contributing to this growth by seeking out new clients and revenue streams, and at the same time focusing on delivery to existing clients and PSLs. Given the number of corporate PSLs in place, this will be an excellent opportunity to grow your revenue and eventually build a successful team.

You will represent Barclay Simpson at networking events and build strong relations with professional bodies that serve the penetration testing and application security community.


The Candidate:


We are seeking a candidate at senior consultant level who has had demonstrable success recruiting in the penetration testing and / or application security market and shares our core values of Integrity, Respect, Collaboration and Performance.  You will have a hunger for personal and career development. We view this as a highly candidate led market so will expect you to be able to clearly differentiate yourself from other recruiters in the market by demonstrating innovative resourcing techniques and strong candidate relationships.
