1st Executive


High profile cybersecurity breaches are becoming more commonplace and organisations recognise the need to hire the right talent to protect them.

On the Lookout for Top Talent - Transformational People Services


An increased need for cybersecurity professionals means talent is in short supply and through global experts who have created opportunities for candidates with IT skills to cross train and work within the IT security industry, 1st Executive can assist in this key discipline. Our global partner, Park Lane Recruitment, based in the UK has developed close relationships with tertiary institutions to source and build relationships with talented graduates who have relevant industry skills.

This has provided us with the capacity to serve companies of all sizes: from SME’s to large corporates, to Defence (Park Lane’s clients include NATO) in sourcing IT security professionals to meet their requirements. We have worked with specialist network and IT consultancies, cloud security and compliance and the largest professional services firms in the world.
