Why would you consider a career at SEP2?

SEP2 hires for attitude. We understand that our tech and our people are what sets us apart; we also understand that one cannot exist without the other. So, as we grow as an organisation, we need to maintain the incredible standard of personality and attitude that has got us this far.

SEP2 operates within a cutting-edge sector. There is rarely a dull day at SEP2; we are constantly vigilant to new and emerging threats. Our duty is to combat these threats. This is why one of our values advocates that we are ‘committed to doing good’.

We will guarantee that you will be challenged

SEP2 puts its people at the heart of its organisation. We have a track record of developing all staff, including apprentices, to being best-in-class. There’s nothing that makes us more proud than when an apprentice graduates, or a technician achieves a cyber-security qualification.

Most of all, we will guarantee that you will be challenged and listened to at work regardless of whether you work in sales, marketing, technical or operations.

Kieron has been with SEP2 since 2019 and works in our support team.

For Kieron, there is no typical day at SEP2, for one day he can be working through open tickets, another day you could be working on a priority case for the duration of the day, and another day you could be working on an ongoing project, but what Kieron enjoys is that the mix of challenges keeps the role fresh and interesting.

Kieron likes that within the support team everybody works well together, and shares knowledge between every level and are constantly being encouraged to learn.

In his spare time, Kieron’s current favourite hobby is working on his allotment, which gives him a nice change of scenery and a break from technology.
