Cyber Security & Networking

Northern Ireland is the no.1 international investment location for US cybersecurity firms and the global hub of the cyber sector. As a result, demand for IT Security talent across Northern Ireland is at an all-time high, with cybersecurity contributing to roughly £70million in salaries per year and 1,700 professionals working within this space.

The cybersecurity industry in Northern Ireland is worth more than £22bn to the UK economy - growing by 10% per annum. This is supported heavily by NI with a variety of specialist research centres, startups, solution providers and a cluster of investors who are considerably contributing to the growth of this industry across the wider UK.

At MCS Group, we have supported numerous organisations developing their cybersecurity teams from the ground up. We assist them in finding like-minded individuals who put IT Security at the forefront of operations and not something which sits on the periphery.

Many of these organisations are willing to speak with individuals who have IT experience, with a genuine passion and interest in entering the field of IT Security or those seeking to make a career switch.

  • Penetration tester
