Looking for a cyber security job? The England Queen is hiring an expert to protect the royal family from hackers. How to apply

This week the Royal British Household released an ad to look for applicants for a vacancy as a cybersecurity engineer, with a salary of up to $60,000 USD for just 37 & a half hours of work a week. Whoever holds this position should monitor real networks and systems, as well as identify potential security threats and take care of the security incident response process.

The ad, posted on the Real Vacancies website, asks candidates to submit their applications by May 26, as the selection process will begin in June: “By joining our cybersecurity team it will play a key role in implementing a comprehensive security strategy,” the announcement adds.

The ad also includes a detailed description of the job: “The employee will monitor our networks and systems, identifying potential threats and leading response activities. Technical research will also be requested to determine potential impacts on IT systems and will maintain our hardware and software deployments.”

The person chosen for the position will report directly to the Chief of Computer Security of the Royal House, providing their knowledge and experience to minimize security incidents and strengthen the resilience of the systems.

In addition to professional training in the field of cybersecurity and demonstrable experience, the Royal House requests that applicants have other qualities, including problem-solving ability, critical thinking, and prioritization of weekly goals, among others.

A few months earlier this year, the British crown announced that a large portion of its employees could continue to enjoy the benefits of the new flexible work model implemented by the pandemic, so that their cybersecurity staff will be able to perform many of their day-to-day work remotely.

The Royal Household also published a vacancy to work as a senior employee communications assistant. This work offers up to $27,000 a year and applicants will need to keep internal digital platforms updated on a mixed working model that will be maintained even after the British government lifts pandemic restrictions.

These job offers are a clear example of what has become the training of professionals in the cybersecurity world, as the challenges that organizations face in terms of IT security are growing.
