"You take the blue pill, the story ends. You wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes." Morpheus to Neo, The Matrix

If you enjoy the nicer aspects of recruitment, such as engineering the careers of your candidates, forming long term meaningful relationships and being able to place an ethical quality approach ahead of achieving impossible targets, we might be the Company you are looking for.  If however these sentiments make you want to gag, you probably wouldn’t fit in with the team, (take the blue pill).  Despite the achievable targets, lack of cold calling and emphasis on quality of life, we still work hard and rely upon your work ethic to deliver results, with teamwork in mind, a wicked sense of humour is mandatory.

Cyber security has taken the fore for the last 18 months or so and numerous agencies are desperately trying to develop a cyber security capability. CND is one of the oldest independent cyber security recruitments agencies in the UK who are dedicated to cyber security.  Our longstanding global reputation for not only being awesome at what we do, but in an ethical way, makes a recruiter’s life much easier. Candidates who know of us, will genuinely welcome your call and even if they aren’t looking for a new role, they will still pass the time of day with you, which if you’ve been recruiting for a while, you’ll find refreshing.

Business is booming and we have loads of open requirements.

You will be expected to learn about cyber security, though we’ll help you every step of the way with some excellent training, both internal and external.
