Job Description

Do you know how to stop a sophisticated cyber threat? So do we.

Avanade is recognized as a leading Microsoft security service partner! 

Are you ready to tackle some of the biggest challenges in cybersecurity? Distinctive experiences. Limitless learning. Ambitious growth. That’s what you get when you choose to join and build your career at Avanade. At Avanade, cybersecurity consultants are innovators, risk-takers, and status quo challengers. If you’re an experienced Cyber Defense consultant, who can help our clients solve complex Cyber Defense business challenges, this might be the perfect opportunity for you.  

Fortune 500 companies don’t need more cybersecurity: they need better cybersecurity. That’s where you come in. Working with us, you can help to protect some of the world’s biggest companies and keep their assets safe and secure. 

Want to stay ahead of the curve?

Avanade proudly launches the Cyber Security Institute, in collaboration with Microsoft, offering you the unique opportunity to grow your security expertise as you start your new role as Cyber Security Consultant at Avanade. This four-week program is a first of its kind deep training framework that will provide 4 weeks of virtual training focused on cyber security. Whether or not you have relevant cyber security experience, this Academy is designed to give you the skills and certifications on Microsoft's security products so you can take your career to new heights at Avanade right as you get through the door. From day one you are employed at Avanade and after the training, you will go onto different projects with our clients. 

Two possible profiles are eligible for this institute

I have no (or basic) cyber security knowledge

Cyber security is not an afterthought anymore. With the fast pace to the cloud, security is all around us and top of mind for our clients and their customers. We care more about who you are and where you’re going than where you’ve been. Technology changes fast, so if you are ready and passionate to create what's next for our clients, we’ll shape the future together.

I’m a (cyber) security professional with no Microsoft expertise

Did you know that Microsoft reached $10B in cyber security sales? With a goal to grow up to 400% in the next years, you want to be on the forefront of this technology to stay in the game. Bring your security expertise and we’ll offer you a place to innovate, create and challenge yourself. Together we push the boundaries of the possible.

Get best in class training

The full-time certifying training cycle will take place in English and combines theoretical modules with practical work modules, supervised by cyber security experts from Avanade and Microsoft. During this training, you will work on the latest technologies in data security, identity, cloud security, endpoint security, and alert management while acquiring the latest Microsoft certifications.  We can want to share our unparalleled expertise in securing the Microsoft platform with you during the training and afterward when you are working in a role at Avanade. 

Avanade’s security community is growing fast, and there’s no stopping us! Being part of the Avanade family means you’ll experience a great company culture, where colleagues support each other and share knowledge through formal training opportunities as well as informal evenings amongst peers.
