Welcome to the August 2015 Newsletter.
It’s good to see that a new careers hub has been set up to encourage people into the cyber security industry – and then keep them there. It’s a welcome move and long overdue, many would argue.

Launched by Digital Economy Minister Ed Vaizey at Reform’s ‘Cyber security: assurance, resilience, response’ conference, the Inspired Careers website (www.inspiredcareers.org) has been designed to help address the cyber security skills shortage by attracting new people into the industry, and providing professional career paths and opportunities.

The site has been developed with funding from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) as part of the UK Government’s National Cyber Security Programme, with the support of CREST, the not-for-profit body that represents the technical information assurance industry.

Inspired Careers offers ‘day in the life’ filmed interviews; internship, apprenticeship, work experience and more senior level vacancies; academic and professional courses and certifications; social media resources, whitepapers and suggestions on next careers choices.

Employers are being encouraged to publicise internship and other work-based training on the site to give students the opportunity to experience real-world cyber security work. This will also help to address demand for high-calibre future recruits by giving them the knowledge and practical experience they need.

For more details, go to www.inspiredcareers.org or contact: admin@inspired-careers.org.

To make sure you get your copy of the Newsletter emailed to you personally, every time, click here to register.
