About TAG International

TAG International is at the forefront of international capacity building, providing security, governance, and social development services. We work on behalf of major donors, such as the UK Government (FCDO, Home Office, NCA, and MOD), the UN, and USAID, across diverse themes such as National Security & Resilience (NS&R), Governance & Social Development (G&SD), and Security & Justice (S&J). Our goal is to be the preferred partner in the development sector, delivering sustainable solutions in demanding environments. Bringing together our unrivalled experience, knowledge and global networks, TAG is proud to be driving positive impact in an increasingly complex world.


About the NS&R Practice

In the National Security & Resilience (NS&R) Practice we focus on empowering countries emerging from conflict and political transitions with the means to safeguard their progress. Our expertise lies in building government capabilities for protecting critical infrastructure, combating cyber threats, securing borders, and countering terrorism and transnational crime. Our team, comprising military, intelligence, cybersecurity, and CT experts, excels in designing sustainable, context-specific, and locally affordable solutions. A notable aspect of our work is in cybersecurity, where we support stronger detection and response capabilities against cyber incidents, protecting critical infrastructure and national stability. Our aim is to help states develop robust capabilities to address and mitigate a range of risks in today's complex global landscape.


About the Role

As an independent associate with a focus on Cyber Security, you will be assigned to projects for a variable number of days depending on skills and experience. Often this will be a remote engagement, but on occasions you will be required to spend time in country supporting regional experts and transferring knowledge to them that they may not yet have acquired.


There is no guarantee of work, but demand for our services has increased significantly and we want to expand our talent pool so we can maintain this trend and respond to requests aligned with our strategy.


Your primary responsibility will be the delivery of activities from our Cyber Security portfolio. Depending on your skills and experience, this may be anything from facilitating a workshop for developing roadmaps to advising organisations on cyber risk management, to helping set up a SOC, to developing expertise in others around cyber security maturity improvement.


About You

You are a cyber security professional. You may be at the beginning of your career, or further along. What is important about you is that you’re in cyber because you like the opportunities it gives to be challenged and make change happen. You’re good at collaboration. You like learning.


Duties & Responsibilities

These will be dependent on specific assignments but will be associated with at least one of the sub-categories associated with Govern, Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, Recover.

  • Recognised cyber security qualifications or plan in progress to achieve one.
  • Work experience in a cyber security domain.
