Prior to Montash I was working in Recruitment on the Isle of Wight – a lovely little island on the south coast of the UK. I was working in an IT recruitment company similar to Montash, but I was only working on the Middle East market. I was born and raised on the Isle of Wight and started recruitment after further education – it was hard to walk away from practically living on the beach but I had always wanted to explore London!
After spending a year at the IT recruitment firm, I decided to explore opportunities away from home and after interviewing at Montash I realised it was going to be the perfect next step for me. From the start of the process to signing my employment contract the team made sure I understood the future goals for Montash, the core internal practices and multiple career paths I could take as I continued developing my skills. All of this was very important to me and made choosing Montash an easy decision, you want to know exactly how the company operates and how you can develop right?
My first week... In my first week I had a multiple training sessions on the internal database system and was given the opportunity to decide what practice I moved into. Having the freedom to do my own research into each practice was awesome, one of my main drivers for joining Montash was having the availability to work in a specific market and become a true specialist in that area – in the end I chose Information Security and have never looked back.
My future growth is now around developing the cyber security practice here at Montash spanning over threat intelligence, incident response, forensics and malware/reverse engineering. My manager and peers have been very supportive in planning out my development stages throughout the year and making sure I’m on course and making the right movements to ensure I will be successful.
As always there is lots of hard work ahead but it’s a pleasure to be a part of such great company with ambition and vision.
