Smart hiring is the lifeblood of every organisation. Without an influx of high-performance people to help your company grow and thrive, it will flail and fall behind. The problem is, the whole recruitment process is a drag for companies – we get that. It’s expensive, takes up way too many hours from HR and hiring managers, agency recruiters are pushy sales types, and the whole thing all too often ends in sub-optimal hiring anyway.

Recruitment firms tend to take up time with pointless chit chat and meetings, and occasionally throw a resume your way that’s close enough to interview, and maybe, just maybe that candidate will end up get hired. Is that the best person on the market? Will that person add to both the performance and the culture of your organisation? Likely not.

All MercSec do is Infosec recruitment. We don’t try and be all things to all people – just provide exceptional search & recruitment for information security positions. And we’ve gotten really, really good at it. Whether you’re an enterprise organisation after a Security Architect, a consultancy after a Pentester, or a vendor looking for a Sales Executive or Pre-Sales Specialist, we can help.

Chances are if your organisation has any information security vacuum, MercSec are the best people to find the optimal solution.

Our team of experts then conducts a rigerous screening & interview process to unearth the idea candidate, not the first person that ticks just enough of the boxes on the job description.
