The Selor, the official recruitment agency for the Belgian federal government, just started a new recruitment campaign for 24 cyber security specialists amongst which 20 with a master degree and relevant experience. Its an ambitions objective and we can applaude the will to increase our capability in fighting the cyber war within the ministry of defence. However, it is a difficult goal to achieve as there is not so many skilled specialists, they don’t have absolutely a master degree and they may not be satisfied with a yearly salary around 42 K€ (gross). However, we should not underestimate the patriotic sense or the desire to step into the military/spy world. Additionnally, it is certainly an interesting choice for some people to make a new step forward in their career.
So, if you have the rights skills, the desire to work in a very stimulating environement fighting the war against the cyber-soliders and cyber-criminals, you have until the 19th of June 2015 to apply here (in French): http://www.selor.be/fr/cyberdefense or here (in flemish): http://www.selor.be/nl/cyberdefense.
