  • The Challenge

    NCC Group is a global leading information security consultancy business with over 2,000 employees. As cyber security becomes a board-level priority, they have seen an increased reliance on their services from over 15,000 clients worldwide. With industry accreditations from bodies ranging from the UK government CESG CHECK scheme to the PCI Security standards council, acquiring information security talent of the highest level remained a key priority for NCC Group.

    Cyber security is a notoriously candidate-driven market, meaning finding the best-of-the best can be difficult. In a world where passive candidates reign, NCC Group needed a clear and targeted Employee Value Proposition (EVP) to secure exceptional talent in this challenging environment.

  • The Solution

    NCC Group has worked with NP Group for a number of years to refine and position their EVP to the passive candidate-driven cyber security market.

    By utilising our cyber security expertise within our technology recruitment practice, our consultants identified and attracted industry recognised certified cyber security professionals globally.

    We’ve also deployed our technology professional services model, building a pool of cyber security Associate’s NCC Group are able to draw on as and when they need flexible contractors to supplement skills to ensure they meet the needs of their clients.

    When NCC Group needed to appoint a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) and other Director level roles, our executive search practice took the lead.

    Over the years we’ve held a number of intensive interview campaign days and continue to successfully work alongside NCC Group to attract the very best cyber security talent around the world. By combining three of our service offerings, NCC Group has had scalable access to world-class talent from board level down, allowing NCC Group to secure the talent required efficiently and seamlessly.
