What will I be doing….

This unique opportunity involves working in an energetic creative environment with a broad remit across two different areas of testing. The first is working to a waterfall process with our Digital department testing client websites, mobile apps and innovative digital experiences, the second is a more agile approached remit in testing our internal web based systems. You’ll be spearheading our testing function with a large degree of autonomy, so we’re looking for a strong team player with a highly collaborative, self-motivated and problem solving attitude.


You’ll have sound commercial experience within software testing and ideally hold an accreditation within software testing.


Key responsibilities:

  • Manual testing of websites, apps and other creative digital tools on multiple browsers and devices.
  • Manual testing of software systems.
  • Defining test strategies and test plans based on project requirements.
  • Collaborating with project managers and the development team to identify the testing requirement.
  • Plan, create and execute manual software test cases.
  • Reporting software defects using Visual Studio Team Services and work with development teams to resolve them.
  • Communicating test progress, test results, and other relevant information to project stakeholders.


What will I need….

  • Proven experience of testing line of business user systems and interfaces.
  • Experience of working on projects delivered using both agile and waterfall methodologies.
  • Experience of testing web sites, applications and services.
  • Excellent visual awareness, problem solving skills, an eye for detail and natural curiosity.
  • Passionate about digital, technology and being part of a like-minded development community.
  • An analytical and systematic approach to testing.
  • Confident and solution focused communication skills.
  • A flexible and exploratory testing style when required.
  • Must be able to work autonomously


Desirable but not essential:

  • ISTQB/ISEB Certification
  • Experience in using Visual Studio Team Services
  • Experience with a test automation tool, ideally Selenium.
