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.


Our services include executive search, contingent perm, interim and salary benchmarking.


The Division


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

  • Cyber security is a growing profession with a matching fast growing recruitment market and we have been highly active in this market since 2001.

  • The combination of high levels of growth, development and importance on the agenda of Boards has meant that recruiting for security remains a growing market. We have security recruiters in New York and London and 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 with financial services, large corporates and consultancy firms. You will be joining an experienced, highly networked and knowledgeable team.

  • You will be working with professionals earning between £60k and £200k as part of a high performing team.


The Opportunity


  • The Security division is experiencing a significant increase in volume of vacancies in the commercial sector. The director of the security practice has been building our client base in this market and is seeking a trainee recruitment consultant to initially focus on resourcing within this specialism.

  • You will report to the security team lead in London but will focus on supporting the director as he grows the footprint of Barclay Simpson in the commercial (non-FS sector). The role holder will be trained on the desk by all members of the team. Our short term goal is to ensure you are credible in all areas of security in the shortest period of time and able to support in resourcing high quality candidates.

  • In the longer term you will progress to manage a desk that focusses on a specific vertical skillset in terms of security within the commercial sector. There is no limit to the speed at which you may progress and the role will immediately allow you exposure to working on both senior and mid-level vacancies.


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 ideally either have some form of sales or recruitment experience however brief or have experience either academically or commercially of working in cyber security. Either way you will have a strong and demonstrable interest in pursuing a recruitment career.
