The successful candidate will be assisting the governance, risk and compliance team at OmniCyber Security in all relevant activities to uphold the ISMS.

This can include building laptops ready for new staff; completing vulnerability assessments/report; studying for industry related qualifications and basic QA of consulting reports.

The below training is also included in the role by OmniCyber
  • Phase 1: Pass CompTIA Net+ & CompTIA Sec+
  • Phase 2: Pass the IASME Assessor Skills exam
  • Phase 3: Pass the IASME Cyber Essentials Assessor course
  • Phase 4: Pass the Vulnerability Assessment Plus exam
  • Phase 5: Pass the Cyber Essentials PLUS course

Most of the first year at Omni will be:
  • Technical support, assisting all users with day to day activities should they be required
  • Report writing assistance, we'll train the candidate to use our vulnerability scanning platform to help consultants/auditors with their reports
  • Study...... lots and lots of study, whereby you'll have access to the rest of the consulting team who have already gone through the candidates journey to assist

Based upon the performance in the first year, the second year will entail an introduction to a more customer facing role if we believe the candidate is ready.

Otherwise, we will continue to help the candidate achieve the outcomes from the first year.

Requirements and prospects

Desired skills

  • Basic IT literacy is required - to aid building laptops to a build sheet we use
  • Problem solving - Often new challenges come through and critical thinking and problem solving are the best solutions
  • Patience - If you have ever worked 1st line support, you'll understand this requirement
  • Commitment - We are a business looking to grow and employ new staff. If commitment is shown, we can consider a longer-term employment for the successful candidate
  • Driving License preferred (Not Required) - This is to ensure we're best prepared to get back into the working world post pandemic/restrictions. Often, we must drive to client sites to conduct audits


Personal qualities

  • Governance Risk and Compliance requires interpersonal skills so that you may be able to work effectively when communicating with the team and potentially clients
  • We are looking for a candidate that is outgoing, and able to work both independently and within a team


Desired qualifications

You must have a minimum of a GCSE (or equivalent) in English and maths at Grade C/4 or above and arelevant Level 3 qualification or equivalent.

The ideal candidate will have worked in some form of 1st line technical support in the past, as this generally provides a good foundation before the employer can invest in the candidate.

Future prospects

OmniCyber Security is currently in its growth period, we've opened up offices abroad and are also looking to expand the UK team. Our last apprentice is currently finishing off his course and we are looking to take him on full time based on his performance over the last two years. It's a fantastic learning pathway into the industry and we hope others will follow his example.
