The Centre for Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) helps to keep the country safe. Our role is to reduce the vulnerability of national infrastructure, from health, finance and transport, to energy, food and water. As a Physical Security Advisor, you’ll help industry and government guard against threats, ensuring vital national infrastructure is protected and can support the UK.
It’s an opportunity to make your knowledge and influence count in a vital and unique role. When organisations contact CPNI, you’ll visit them and inspect their infrastructure. Using your expert skills, you’ll highlight vulnerabilities and make recommendations. Our clients operate in a world of changing markets and priorities, so you’ll need to exert all your influence to ensure they act on your advice.
To make an impact from day one, you’ll need sound technical expertise covering physical or protective security, along with knowledge of CPNI. You’ll also need the communication skills to present technical advice both in person and on paper. It’s crucial that you can explain what’s wrong – and why it needs to change. Your ability to express yourself should come with courage and conviction, as organisations may need persuasion to instigate change. Though you’ll have a robust personal presence, you’ll also have the flexibility to learn and adapt. It’s important you can adjust quickly as threats change and evolve.
Keeping the country safe is a complex job, which is why we’re dedicated to giving you a great work-life balance. Plus, you’ll take advantage of impressive training and have the opportunity to gain professional qualifications. It’s not only a chance to develop your skills – it’s an opportunity to build a career.
We particularly welcome applications from women and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic candidates.
