The Division 


Barclay Simpson has one of the UK’s most established 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.


Cyber security is a growing profession which is fuelling a rapidly developing recruitment market.


The combination of high levels of growth, development and importance on the agenda of Boards has meant that recruiting for security professionals remains a high priority.


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


Our team places candidates from Analyst through to Managing Director and Global Heads of Department. We are well networked within financial services, large corporates and consultancy firms. You will be joining an experienced, highly networked and knowledgeable team with an average of 10 years’ experience.



The Role


The Security division is experiencing significant increase in volume of vacancies from some of our larger client accounts and as a result there is a need to expand the team dedicated to delivering on these accounts. 

The successful candidate will report to the Security Team lead in London. The role holder will benefit from formal training in addition to being trained on the desk by all members of the team. Our short term goal is to ensure the individual is credible in all areas of Security in the shortest period of time and able to support the resourcing for the multiple Information and Cyber Security vacancies from a specific account as well as supporting other Consultants in the wider Security team as and when required. 

Candidates will have both candidate and client exposure almost immediately. There is no limit to the speed at which this individual may progress.


Areas covered: (not limited to the following):

  • Information Security Managers, Officers and Heads
  • Security Architecture
  • Security Operations
  • Identity / Access Management
  • Pen Testing
  • Governance, Risk and Compliance
  • Information, Technology, Cyber Risk


You will become a recognised specialist security recruiter within the industry, with the aim of becoming a well networked subject matter expert. You will ensure you keep abreast of security trends, high profile breaches and emerging threats through your network, media outlets and attending security industry evens and conferences.



The Candidate:


We have high expectations in terms of the service we provide to our clients and candidates and the reputation we hold in the market.  We expect all new recruits to meet this high level of service and be able to deliver to tight deadlines. 

We are looking for an individual to have some form of recruitment experience however brief, either as a researcher/resourcer or as a junior consultant.  Importantly, the candidate must be highly motivated, tenacious and have the ability to find solutions to problems. The candidate will be expected to be on the phone and meeting candidates regularly so a professional outlook is essential.
