Scott Burkeman, Warner Scott Recruitment

Friday February 17, 2012 (21:35:27)   (1626 Reads)
Scott Burkeman
Scott is a Director at Warner Scott Recruitment in London, specialising in computer forensics recruitment throughout the UK and abroad.

Can you tell us something about your background? How did Warner Scott Recruitment come into being?

I have been involved in Forensic Technology and Fraud recruitment for over a decade, working for an international recruitment firm and more recently with Warner Scott. I initially began placing Senior Forensic Accounting professionals prior to the boom in Computer Forensics. Many of my clients were looking to develop Computer Forensic teams from scratch and asked me to get involved in the recruitment of Forensic Technology candidates to assist in their growth plans. Since then, the rest is history!

Warner Scott Recruitment was set up in 2006 as a specialist recruitment consultancy with the vision of developing long-standing, meaningful relationships with both our candidates and clients. We have a strong focus on the Computer Forensic and eDiscovery market and are one of only a handful of specialist consultancies that have a dedicated team focusing in this area.   more ...

Ben is a civilian investigator working for the Hi Tech Crime Unit of North Yorkshire Police in the UK.

Can you tell us something about your background? Why did you decide to work in the field of digital forensics?

Digital forensics is something I came to by chance, really. Upon finishing my A levels, I went off to university to read medicine. After 2 years doing that, I came to the conclusion that my calling was elsewhere. I moved back home and enrolled at my local university on an Applied Science and Forensic Investigation course. It was during this time that I was introduced to Forensic Computing. During a final year group-based module called 'Crime Scene to Court' we were exposed to practical forensic processes at every step of the investigation, including some digital forensic investigation. Also, as part of the lectures supporting this module, there were a few on forensic computing and they really caught my interest. In fact, so much so that I applied to get on the MSc program shortly afterwards.   more ...
