Ascent Global Security Ltd, London

 Ascent Global Security Ltd

 

Name of Company/Organization: Ascent Global Security Ltd

Location: London, UK

Intern Position Title Cyber Security Search Consultant


Dates of Internship: As long as possible, ideally 3+ months but absolute minimum 2 months.

Possible Pay or other Compensation:

Commission only which usually amounts to about 1-2K Pounds Sterling per month but it is uncapped and some interns have seen 7K+ in one month!

 

For the right candidate I would be willing to perhaps pay a set amount for travel + lunch in exchange for less commission though this is not ideal.

Possible Housing options:

Ascent Global Security Ltd can offer recommendations for flatshare/ temp housing sites but the intern would be wholly responsible for this.


Primary responsibilities of the position:

  • The intern would look at a job spec and be briefed on a company we represent in Cyber Security and would then use our available search channels to identify, contact, and profile suitable candidates for the role.

  • They will sell the company and role to the candidate and organize interviews. If they are comfortable they will relay any offer information to their candidates also (if the candidate receives an offer).

  • Depending on how well they do, they will also be focused on businesses development and winning new clients and searching those roles subsequently (and briefing the team on new roles).

  • The companies we work with are global so the intern would gain experience working across a variety of cultures and sourcing for all levels of jobs within the Cyber Security space- from grads to Senior Directors. They would be exposed to a wide array of Cyber jobs from technical hackers to incident response specialists, to IT security policy makers and strategists and would need to communicate with tact and gravitas to these professionals. They will also get firsthand experience finding out what makes a good resume, prepping candidates for interviews and seeing how the job process works from a hiring manager’s point of view- thus helping prepare them for their own job applications and interviews down the line.

Are any languages besides English required? At what level?

No but speaking fluent German or any Nordic or Arabic language could be useful.

 

Requirements concerning citizenship?

Americans with a Bunac visa are fine, but ideally we would like someone with an EU passport.

 

Desired professional skills/specialties of the ideal intern:

  • This position requires someone very mature, who is quick thinking, organized, good at multi-tasking, and an excellent communicator

  • Someone who has taken negotiation/ public speaking/ debate / acting courses would be a definite plus

  • Someone who has had a job or internship before, ideally in sales, would be a plus

  • Someone who can handle rejection

  • Someone with an entrepreneurial spirit who does not want to be micromanaged and is happy and aware to ask questions and be proactive in their workload

  • It would be a plus if the intern has an interest in Cyber Security but their major doesn’t matter so much – it’s mainly about personality type, tenacity and interest in this work and making money! (If you want to note to the candidates that the Hiring Manager actually has an Art History/ Film and Video background, that is fine)
