Curating Specialist Cyber Security Talent
At Outsource UK, we help cyber-conscious companies to strengthen their own teams to respond immediately to any security threats and limit their impact to your organisation.
We’ll work in partnership with you to deliver handcrafted, specialist workforce solutions that evolve with your business needs.
Our wealth of experience recruiting within cyber security means that you can focus on the specifics of the skills you need, without having to provide us with line-by-line explanations. It’s only by building lasting relationships with highly-skilled professionals that we’re able to keep offering the great service we do.
We cover all staffing aspects of the cyber world
Whether it's a leadership CISO role or a more junior SOC analyst, the Cyber market is polarised between executives and those who are in early training and development. We endeavour to seek out and nurture our own handcrafted talent pools from more unusual places including our Women Returner and Military Leaver programmes, and from our own candidate nurturing events that we run UK-wide.
We're in touch with a wide variety of skillsets from talent based up and down the country, so we probably already know the Infosec professional that you need.
We recently supported the build-out of the leadership team for a UK-based security business. Every candidate had to be engaged compliantly, security cleared and DBS checked and available for remote work for a highly-confidential project in the public sector. Five roles were managed and filled over a 4 month window utilising targeted executive search techniques and digital marketing to fulfill Government hiring due diligence.
Niche skills development
We've worked with a number of international business based in the UK to deliver specialist Cyber training and hiring programmes, often time-pressured.
We've also designed specific hiring programmes for hard-to-find candidates, cross- and up-skilling talented technical people from other disciplines.
A leading technology services provider came to us to manage end-to-end hiring of a suite of senior leaders for a new part of the organisation. In a time-limited window, we sourced five senior Infosec professionals with differing, complementary skillsets and experience, all with security clearance.
Inclusion & Diversity hiring programmes
Clients come to us for specialised support and education around inclusion and diversity, to broaden candidate shortlists with under-represented groups, such as women and military leavers. We also recently supported the National Cyber Security Centre with an Inclusive Recruitment event as part of our Diversity Matters events series where we support our customers to engage and learn with the wider Inclusion & Diversity community.
Next generation talent
We also regularly get involved in career development talks for schools, colleges, military academies and employers. Here's Outsource UK in action at a recent LikeToBe Ethical Careers event at a school near Bristol, hosted by Chris Packham and we attend the annual Sandhurst Military Academy's STEM event for local schoolgirls to showcase Cyber, Technology & Engineering careers.
“Outsource used their expertise to help make the transition from military life into the world of civilian employment as seamless as it could be. All in all, they provided an excellent service and I felt very respected as a candidate.”Candidate placed at SecureCloud+
