If you don't meet all the criteria but you do believe that this is the right position for you, we kindly invite you to apply anyway or get in touch.

What will you do in this position?

As a (Senior) Consultant Cyber Strategy & Risk you will work on different projects for a wide variety of clients. You will be part of an international, multidisciplinary and motivated team and work in an informal yet professional atmosphere. Because of this challenging environment you will get the chance to learn continuously and develop yourself to become an expert in the field.

We work closely together with colleagues from various disciplines (e.g. ethical hackers, privacy consultants and security monitoring experts) within the larger cyber security team our team belongs to.

"A clear picture of cyber risks is essential to make the right decisions. Our role is to provide clients a clear picture and the knowledge to invest in the right measures."

Typical projects include among others investigating the way cyber security is organized within an organization. You identify risks and provide advice to bring cyber security to the next level.

In addition, you are involved in analysing, designing and implementing solutions around e.g. Identity and Access Management (IAM) and Governance Risk and Compliance (GRC). Other projects can include assessing the cyber security maturity of an organization, providing advice on the implementation of controls and testing the effectiveness of existing technical and organizational controls within an organization.

The Cyber and Privacy team also hosts an exchange program between the Cyber departments in the EMEA region. (Senior) consultants with 1-3 years of working experience at KPMG are eligible to apply for this exciting opportunity in which they can gain international working experience and grow in their professional career.

This is what we offer

  • Competitive salary, a bonus, a fixed expense allowance and a working from home allowance.
  • 30 vacation days (on a full-time basis) and the option to buy more days or sell your vacation days.
  • Reimbursement of your travel expenses with a NS business card or travel allowance.
  • A laptop and iPhone which also can be used privately.
  • Pension accrual without a compulsory personal contribution.
  • Choice to pick from different courses which contribute to your own personal and professional development.
  • Focus on well-being! There is a gym at the Amstelveen office or you can get a discount for a gym near your house and you get access to different health and/or vitality programs.
  • ‘Together’ is one of our core values. So you can count on different social activities, like team events, drinks with colleagues and events with all your KPMG colleagues.
