Job Description & Summary

With PwC, you'll ignite a meaningful career while being supported by a flexible working culture, innovative learning and development opportunities and progressive policies and benefits, such as 18 weeks paid parental leave for mums, dads and foster carers (no minimum service!)

What will you create? 

You'll help Australian businesses, not-for-profits and governments create value and improve the way they work. From digitising healthcare, to creating smarter cities and igniting our start-up industry, together we build trust in society and solve important problems.

As a Penetration Tester in our Advanced Threat Services Cyber Consulting team your impact will be seen by:
  • Helping our clients manage their cybersecurity risk by identifying weaknesses in their systems, applications and networks through internal and external network penetration testing, web application and web service penetration testing, vulnerability assessments, and cloud security assessments
  • Communicating the weaknesses you identify to our clients, helping to translate technical details for stakeholders with varying levels of technical knowledge
  • Providing practical recommendations on how to mitigate identified risks
  • Contributing to the capability and knowledge of our national penetration testing team, which may include development of your own custom tools and exploits
About you  

You have passion for penetration testing, and a desire to drive your own experience and career.

Supported by our broader team, you will help our clients manage their cyber risk through penetration testing, including the communication of results and recommendations to client stakeholders.

You have experience conducting network, infrastructure and web application penetration testing. Ideally, you have experience in other areas of penetration testing such as security assessments of cloud-hosted solutions (e.g. AWS, Azure), mobile applications (iOS/Android), thick clients or wireless network assessments.

You're collaborative and enjoy working in an innovative environment. You're a problem solver by nature and want to join a firm that values the kind of people who reimagine the possible for their clients and stakeholders. Most importantly, you act with integrity and show care for the people you work with.

You are keen to support and mentor junior team members as they expand their own penetration testing skill set.

As a bonus, you may hold security related certifications, such as OSCP, OSCE, SANS, CREST CRT or CCT, or CISSP.

Life at PwC 

Consulting bring this to life by helping clients improve the way they operate, manage risks, reduce costs, leverage talent, or fundamentally change the way they do business. Your work here will help organisations of all shapes and sizes to more effectively understand and manage their cybersecurity risks, enabling them to work smarter and grow faster. 

Our culture and benefits are something we're proud of, and also the reason we've been named LinkedIn's #1 Australian workplace. With PwC, you'll belong to an inclusive community where differences are both embraced and the underlying driver in everything we create together. 

We empower you with the technology, coaching, flexibility and trust needed to make a meaningful difference, while supporting you in bringing your whole self to work each day. We're committed to building and maintaining a diverse workforce because we know it's only by working together that we can realise the potential of our people, clients and society around us.

We're living this commitment through initiatives including our Reconciliation Action Plan to increase Indigenous employment and employee-led diversity networks promoting cultural, disability, LGBTI and gender equality. At our core we're a people business, which means you'll be supported not just in your professional development but your personal growth as well. 

Sam Thomas is the Recruitment Manager for the role. As the team experience high volumes of applications, we appreciate your patience to allow for a timely and fair process for all. #LI-PWCLMT
