Who you’ll be working with

With incidents of cyber-crime frequently in the news, Capgemini’s clients are increasing conscious of the need to protect their systems and data.  The successful applicant for this role will join Capgemini’s Inverness based UK Security Operations Team, which in turn forms part of the Company’s Global Cybersecurity Unit.

The Highland Security Operations Centre (HSOC) has proven highly successful since its formation in 2014 and serves a range of government and commercial clients headquartered in the UK and Continental Europe.
