Since 1999 Ward Solutions have been a leading provider of Information Security Solutions on the Island of Ireland in 2021 we were acquired by the Ekco group and are now part of a growing team (340 and counting!) of tech professionals across Ireland, the UK and with our recent acquisition by the Ekco group as part of Ekco Secure we’re ready to take things to the next level… and we want you to come along with us!

What does a role with Ward look like?

 

Our graduate roles are split across three main departments

 

  • SOC – If defensive security is your thing our security operations centre is the heart of that at Ward. Here we monitor our customer environments for threats in real time, and when those threats appear that’s when the SOC team really shines. As well as monitoring we also do proactive threat hunting and incident response.
  • NOC – Our Network operations centre team build and maintain the secure environments that our customers entire operations sit on. They build the infrastructure that governs traffic in and out of our customers networks so if your interests are in networking, platform or cloud security this is where you belong!
  • SGRC – Strategy, Governance, Risk and Compliance is where we secure some of the biggest weaknesses in our customer environments. Having the best firewall and a monitored network won’t help if our customers don’t have the tools to enable their teams to think securely. This is where our SGRC team come in, they evaluate the internal processes that our customers use, help them establish better ones and then test them out though pentesting and social engineering. Our Test and Assurance team sits within the SGRC team and are our experts in offensive security.

 

Whatever your chosen specialty all of our graduate roles are entry level so you’ll spend your first few months getting up to speed with all our tech in your area of specialty, and attaining some important industry certifications in addition to in-house training. Day to day you’ll work in teams of experienced professionals who have tons of advice and a wealth of industry experience to share. You will work with a peer mentor in addition to your manager to get up to speed on our internal processes, and skills like customer presentations and report writing.
