About the Role

The FTI Cybersecurity EMEA team are a dynamic and skill-diverse group of individuals driven by a single goal: empowering our clients to operate in the most secure manner possible. The varied professional backgrounds boasted by our team include senior national security roles, Big Four consultancy, military engineering, digital forensics, corporate cybersecurity advisory and academia - with each of these providing valuable approaches and perspectives to the work we deliver. Our projects are varied and exciting; whilst, at times, our clients approach us to help them proactively identify the critical security gaps in their infrastructure, the FTI Cybersecurity team regularly respond to clients in distress who've fallen victim to cyber attacks of varying types and severity. We excel at, and are motivated by, solving complex challenges and offering constructive solutions to difficult cybersecurity questions; and our high client return rate is demonstrative of our commitment to cultivating client relationships, discretion, agile responsiveness, thorough investigation and unambiguous guidance.

As a relatively new team within FTI Consulting, our spirit is fundamentally entrepreneurial - we thrive on initiative, actively encouraging team members at all levels to own and drive aspects of our development. We are working hard to foster a culture of inclusivity and respect based on team-oriented thinking and honest, open communication. Our leadership acknowledge that team members will have responsibilities and demands on their time outside of work and will always make every effort to offer flexible and/or remote working to accommodate these other priorities.

What You'll Do

The FTI Cybersecurity EMEA team are looking for a Senior Consultant with excellent analytic and investigative skills to play a central role in delivering project work. The role will require you to perform a wide range of cybersecurity engagements in a fast-paced environment, including:
  • Analysing technical data quickly, and crafting a convincing and authoritative narrative to communicate your findings to non-technical audiences;
  • Producing sophisticated, polished and readable reports for our valued client base of top-tier law firms, financial institutions and multi-national corporations;
  • Examining and evaluating incident-related data to triage breaches and understand underlying causes;
  • Playing a key role in carrying out cybersecurity maturity assessments, using industry-standard frameworks such as NIST CSF;
  • Developing and maintaining a strong knowledge of industry-critical trends, threats, methodologies and technologies;
  • Supporting remediation activities for post-breach clients, where appropriate;
  • Bringing your expertise and skills to generate thought leadership on relevant topics;
  • Identifying areas for improvement and making suggestions to expand our portfolio of services and/or improve our working efficiency. ​​​​​​


Qualifications & Experience

The exceptional work that the FTI Cybersecurity EMEA team produce is a result of the exceptional people within it. Our success thus far has been driven by the multidisciplinary backgrounds of our team, and we are proud of our unconventional yet superb talent. Although cyber experience is highly desirable, we are keen to hear from applicants who have a proven capacity for investigation, analysis, and communication skills in other contexts.

As a prospective applicant to our team, you will likely have one or more of the following:
  • A strong degree from a leading university with a concentration on research and analysis (such as corporate intelligence, law, academic research, market analysis or similar). Please note that we are open to advanced degrees in any subject as long as clear research and investigative skills are demonstrated. We can offer training options to develop your technical skills and experience where necessary.
  • Proven problem-solving skills. These may be technical, demonstrated across multiple technologies and acquired through previously-held positions in systems administration, networking or application development. Alternatively, these skills may have been honed in strategic, consulting or intelligence-based roles.
  • Work experience as an incident responder or technical investigator. We are open to hearing from individuals who have gained this experience at other corporate intelligence leaders, cybersecurity or forensics companies, or within the military, law enforcement or government. You may have worked under legal privilege and will be familiar with the concept. You may also have specific cybersecurity certifications (e.g., CISSP, CREST, GIAC, TOGAF, MITRE), and might also be on a professional development programme (e.g. CIISec, BCS, IEEE).

  • At FTI Cybersecurity EMEA, who you are is just as important as the skills you have. Our success is contingent on the quality of our people, and as a prospective applicant to our team you will demonstrate:
    • Excellent communication skills: as a client-facing team, the ability to build strong rapport with clients is paramount. You must be a personable and skilled communicator, with the ability to quickly and effectively connect with people across a wide range of industry sectors both verbally and in written form.
    • Curiosity and critical thinking : as a team, the ability to think critically is one of our strongest assets. You must be able to efficiently break down, evaluate and respond to a problem with clarity, alacrity, and authority. Your thinking will be logical, informed by your industry knowledge and motivated by a compulsion to solve problems and understand root causes.
    • Initiative: you will be a self-starter, with the confidence to grip and drive projects where appropriate. It is important that you are comfortable asking questions where necessary, and anticipate client needs at all times. You will take pride in delivering excellent work consistently, taking ownership of your output and gathering the requisite information to generate exceptional deliverables.
    • Collaboration: FTI Cybersecurity work as one global P&L, with teams across the world. You will be able to communicate effectively with our non-EMEA counterparts and understand where their expertise might aid your work. Our team also regularly collaborate with other teams within the FTI Consulting EMEA practice (such as Strategic Communications, Data and Analytics and Technology) and you will proactively seek out opportunities to work collaboratively.
