    Security investments to better protect critical systems

Cyber Security

Cyber security continues to rise in importance as business and daily life are increasingly digitised. Many organisations are elevating their security measures and increasing their security investments to better protect their critical systems.

With cyber risks changing every day and becoming ever more complex, the demand for cyber security professionals and solutions continues, particularly those with new skills such as penetration testing, vulnerability assessment and security analytics.

We work closely with MSSPs, vendors and consultancies, nationwide, placing skilled and qualified permanent staff and professional contractors from graduate positions through to C/D level.

Whether you’re hiring for a project, a one-off permanent role or you’re in need of a partner for a full recruitment strategy, we deliver the people that can safeguard your data, systems and business operations. We recruit across a broad range of industries, including defence, finance, legal, retail and transportation. From engineers, through to consultants and architects as well as penetration testers and project managers, we help clients connect with hard-to-find cyber security talent.

With our strong networks built over many years, we recruit for a range of skills and levels from entry level positions to senior management roles for both permanent and contract.


I have worked with Context Recruitment on numerous occasions over the years. Dealing with agencies everyday I can honestly say they are a cut above the rest. They have a style and manner about them that few have. They go out of their way to understand requirements, only present the very best candidates and are as authentic and professional as they come. I trust them 100% and am looking forward to being able to work with them again imminently.

Recruitment Manager, HighQ
Jon has provided recruitment services to me personally and as a hiring manager prior to Context Recruitment, and they continue to do so since it’s creation. In that time Context have been able to identify quality candidates that in many cases we’ve been able to offer roles to, particularly in the area of information security and network security. Jon’s personal, professional approach and commitment to finding the right candidates, often where there are hard to find skill sets involved has been key. We continue to use Context Recruitment and I am happy to recommend their services
