Ethical Hacker – Permanent Full Time (Mon- Thurs)

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

Do you believe in protecting organisations through cyber security?

Who we are

The Cyber and Fraud Centre – Scotland is a more-than-profit, employee-first organisation that exists to ensure Scottish organisations are as resilient as they can be against cyber and fraud crime. In the eventuality of a cyber or fraud attack, the centre and its partners can support organisations through it and help resume operations.

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

We are a high performance 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 operate. We are keen on nurturing our culture, one that supports equality, 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 the Cyber and Fraud Centre as we continue to grow and expand our services.

We have an internal culture and well being group and they meet regularly 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 work week which has recently been made permanent.
