Cyber Security Consultant – Permanent Full Time (Mon- Thurs)

Cyber and Fraud Centre – Scotland – Linlithgow (Hybrid working)

Who we are

Cyber and Fraud Centre Scotland is a not-for-profit organisation and a respected voice in business resilience, bringing together the Scottish Government and the Scottish business community.  Our purpose is to support organisations on their path to better resilience by being the catalyst that makes Scotland one of the safest and most resilient places to live, work, and do business, both on and offline, especially during these times of economic recovery. 

It is our intention that every Scottish organisation have the skills and knowledge to protect themselves against online attacks.  We achieve this through the delivery of education and preventative training, as well as actively raising awareness of threats throughout the business community. 

We are a high-performing team with a focus on genuine care and respect for one another with our values: focus, agility and accountability being at the centre of how we work.  We nurture our culture by supporting equality, and diversity and helping employees achieve their professional goals, as they work to bring safety to organisations around Scotland.  The threat landscape is constantly evolving, and this is an exciting time to join us as we continue to grow and expand our services. 

We have an internal culture and well-being group and they meet to discuss what we have been doing, and what new things we can do to further enhance the experience for employees.  This has led to us trialling a 4-day working week which has recently been made permanent.
