Job description

Lead Pen Tester - Remote - Mentoring Role

A UK consultancy is looking for a remote UK-based penetration tester to join them as they seek to grow out their offensive security offering, building upon the success of their defensive security team over the past year. They’re looking for someone who has industry experience and who can help mentor some of the more junior members of their team. This is still very much a hands-on role however and would be best suited to someone who is an all-round tester with good knowledge of web apps as that is where they get the lion’s share of their work.

They’re probably one of the few firms that are big on learning, not just by providing research time as part of your week but easy access to SANS courses is one thing you will get from the get-go. If you want access to some of the higher-end courses you can have it here.


-         Previous commercial pen testing experience on infrastructure and web apps.

-         Certs like CREST CRT, CCT, OSCP, etc… a nice to have but not obligatory

-         You must be eligible for UK SC, holding it or DV already is a huge bonus.

If you would like to apply for this position or for a confidential discussion about working as a penetration tester or ethical hacker contact Paul Charles on 07935431460 or email

I am the head hunter for pen testers in the UK and recruit for many different organisations up and down the country. I also deal with smaller consultancies and will be able to source that dream job for you.

As an industry leading, nationwide Marketing, Digital, Analytics, IT and Design recruitment agency, we are continually receiving new assignments to work on, so keep a close eye on our website, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter pages for a full list of current permanent and interim opportunities as well as marketplace news and fun stuff.
Forward Role is operating as an employment agency.
