UK Defence and Security Team

Cyber Security Consultant
Your role is at the core of everything BMT does - from helping our customers with high quality engineering consultancy to supporting infrastructure around the world.
Are you looking to apply your engineering knowledge to new and varied challenges, from helping and advising customers with engineering projects to supporting the creation and realisation of new systems? If so, this role may be for you.
What’s the role?
As part of our ambitious growth plans, new and exciting roles are being created within our expanding multi-disciplinary Information Systems team. The roles are ideal for Cyber Specialists with experience and qualifications aligned to Level 3 of the SFIA Foundation Framework. The Cyber practice team is a forward-looking group that can call upon support from adjacent BMT Data Science and Human Factors SMEs in order to provide multi-faceted solutions.
We are now looking for new team members and we are open to different levels of knowledge and experience. Additionally, we can be flexible on location either in our main offices in central Bath or remote working. Flexible working is available so we welcome applications from those not based in the Bath area - we have offices in Plymouth, Portsmouth, Weymouth, Barrow, Glasgow and London too. There is also travel required to customer sites or to attend meetings.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for Cyber Security Consultants who can communicate information security risks clearly to business managers and others. You will be able to perform basic risk assessments for information systems and support vulnerability assessments. You can apply, and maintain, specific security controls as required by organisational policy and local risk assessments - this should include knowledge of both NCSC and internationally recognised cyber standards and common security risk mitigations.
As much of our work is directly customer focused, your ability to present and articulate technically complex work clearly to stakeholders is important.
Whilst experience of Threat Intelligence and knowledge of the Government’s Security Policy Framework and the Defence Manual of Security would be useful, your ability and desire to quickly accrue this knowledge and experience is more important to us.
We value professional qualifications and professional registration with appropriate institutions and we can provide support, training and tailored experience in order for you to achieve these, if not already held.
Please note, some of the roles within the Cyber practice are reserved for UK Nationals only and will be subject to security checks.
What can we offer you?
We believe in hiring the best talent, from diverse backgrounds, as this introduces new ideas to the team and our customers. This role will be part of the wider Information Systems team which is growing fast and works across different space, defence and security sectors and markets.
We appreciate the importance of having a solid development structure. At BMT we ensure that our people have access to the training and mentoring that they need to be the best at what they do. We constantly strive to improve our working environment and provide everyone with the tools and applications they need to do their roles effectively.
The wellbeing of the team is central to our success, so workloads are managed effectively and we don’t have a work late culture. On top of this we have a host of benefits designed to support our people, such as additional holiday purchase, private medical cover and a personal development fund for gym/sports clubs or non-work related evening classes.
What do we do?
BMT is the leading independent centre of engineering design, design support, app development and technical services for defence and security customers. BMT is known for its innovation, expertise and our ability to tackle the most complex design and systems issues.
