CERT.JE is Jersey’s Cyber Emergency Response Team. We work to prepare, protect and defend the island from cyber threats.

We are hiring cyber security professionals at manager, mid-senior and junior levels to join a small team where each member plays a critical role and is involved in every aspects of our operations. This includes monitoring threat intelligence, handling incidents, delivering CERT operations, and providing advice and assistance to organisations and business leaders across the Island.

As a member of CERT.JE, there will be no typical day. You could be leading a critical change or improvement one day, triaging and handling incidents another, providing advice to a company or charity the day after, and hunting for Channel Islands’ specific threats the next.

Whatever your background, we’re looking for enthusiastic and professional team members with a strong commitment to continuous learning. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone with a proven interest in technology and demonstrable passion for cyber security to have a hands-on impact on our community and work on the front lines of cyber defence.

You will be working with local and international partners at an early stage of CERT.JE’s development, and will provide a crucial role in the development and maturity of the organisation as we build our operational capabilities and transition to an arm’s length body.

Applying as an experienced professional you will have existing relevant experience in cyber security. That experience will vary, and is likely to include some practical experience of security operations and handling technical incidents in a structured manner. You may also have wider experience in areas such as security risk management, red teaming and penetration testing, IT system or network operations, application development and security or general cyber defence. Everyone’s background is different, and we encourage you to apply and see what you can achieve in one of the most varied and challenging cyber defence roles available today.

Please note this role is subject to security clearance. Clearance is not required to apply, however applicants should be willing and able to undertake UK security clearance (SC or DV) as required.

Applications go live on the Government of Jersey website 7th June. To express an interest now, please apply here.
