Time to make a difference with a new Manchester job?

Sophos is a heavyweight new arrival on Manchester’s business scene - and they’re looking for new talent

The past 18 months has led many people to reflect on their career path and think hard about whether they’re achieving their full potential. 

If this rings a bell, take a look at Sophos, a heavyweight new arrival on Manchester’s business scene. 

They’re new in town and looking for new talent who want to make a difference.

If you’re looking for a challenging new role in an important industry and want to help keep individuals and businesses safe and secure online, this could be the employer for you. 

You probably already use world-renowned Sophos antivirus software on your personal or work computer. 

They make the essential programs that clean your computer if it becomes infected, but they’re also developing Sophos Intercept X, a next-generation technology that uses artificial intelligence to predict where attacks are coming from and pre-emptively neutralise them.

A big part of this project will occur in Manchester’s Deansgate, where Sophos are about to launch their second UK hub alongside their Abingdon Headquarters.

This will be a new, modern office space – and they’re also keen on the latest work methods, bringing the most successful ideas straight from Silicon Valley.

As one of the leading players in the cybersecurity industry, Sophos wants the very best computer programmers, engineers, and tech wizards. But this opportunity isn’t just for those with technical know-how – they’re also looking to recruit sales professionals.

As the world moves online, cybersecurity is becoming one of the world’s most important industries. The increasingly complex computer systems used for everything from tracking shipping containers to storing customer data need protection, and you can play a crucial role in helping data stay safe from outside forces. 

And there’s no better place for this than Manchester. The Government’s National Cyberforce recently established an office in the city, and we’re now considered one of the fastest-growing security hotspots in the country.

This is why Sophos has decided to set up shop in the city. 

And in the cybersecurity world, they’re on the winning side. Sophos had an incredibly successful 2020, growing by 11% from the previous year. 

On top of this, Sophos saw a remarkable increase in demand for its Managed Threat Response and Rapid Response services, which protect many thousands of businesses worldwide. 

The company is constantly expanding and developing its ecosystem, with new acquisitions such as Capsule8 and Braintrace, plus its new, advanced Extended Detection and Response (XDR) solutions.
