It’s time to de-risk cyber security recruitment

Cyber Security Recruitment Delivered.

The cyber security skills gap has been well publicised and the statistics are backing up the hype with unfilled roles globally crossing the 4 million mark for the first time. As a result, it’s time to start thinking proactively about cyber security recruitment in order to compete for scarce and specialist talent in this space.

We help accelerate our clients talent acquisition processes by working collaboratively with hiring managers and HR teams, enabling them to get access to a broader talent pool. Our approach offers a tiered and targeted attack, mapping out the market whilst providing a comprehensive range of insight from salary benchmarks through to the organisation charts of your closest competitors. Our established and scalable search processes offer clients complete confidence and predictability of result. We work to fixed timeframes with pre-agreed SLA’s to ensure you get to the hard to reach talent first.

We exist to ensure that cyber security recruitment never stands in the way of your

ability to execute on strategy.
