​Principal Penetration Tester

In the cyber security world, a penetration tester - also called ethical hacker or pentester - will help companies identify and resolve cyber weaknesses and vulnerabilities. Penetration testers can be in-house roles, or work within a firm that provides penetration services to clients.

Penetration testers will run what is called a pen test: a simulated cyber attack on a firm's computer system, which will expose what are the main vulnerabilities. The goal will be to understand a firm's cyber weaknesses, and ultimately to reinforce and augment a web application firewall (WAF).

Manchester

Manchester is known as one of the UK's main cities: beside London, the Greater Manchester area is the country's biggest centre for the financial and professional services sector, with 324,000 Manchester staff and generating £16.2 billion of GVA annually.

The city is notable for many things: its beautiful architecture, which ranges from Victorian inspiration to contemporary styles, its famous sports clubs and even its scientific output. After all, it was at the University of Manchester that Ernest Rutherford first split the atom, in 1917 precisely!

Getting around

Visiting Manchester and commuting to work is very easy once you are in the city. Its city centre is known to be quite compact: if you happen to live nearby, walking might be your best option to get around. But if you happen to live a little further away, you can either take the bus, the tram, the train, and so on.
