GRC professional for Cyber Security Consultancy - remote (UK)

GRC professional required to join expanding boutique Cyber Security Consultancy based on the south coast of England - remote for the most part.

To help support my clients' sustained growth, my client is currently on the lookout for an experienced Governance, Risk & Compliance consultant to join their expanding consultancy team.

They are a relatively small cybersecurity practice (based on the south coast of England), that genuinely strives to put staff before profits. They pride ourselves in cultivating a friendly work environment, where knowledge is shared and invest in training and development is paramount.

They deliver a wide range of cybersecurity consultancy services for both public and private sectors - a lot of work with the NHS so if you have experience working with the National Health Service this will put you in good stead. As a consultant, you'll be delivering various consultancy services to customers, including ISO 27001 gap analysis & consultancy, cyber risk assessments, security posture reviews, vCISO services and Cyber Essentials assessments.

This is an exciting opportunity to be truly valued as a consultant, as you help shape the way they do things and provide excellent consultancy services to customers and partners. If you're tired of working for one of the bigger consultancy practices, where you're treated like just another worker bee on the consultancy production line - this is the role for you!
