Job Description

Tester (DV Cleared) - Manual, Automation, Applications, Mobile

Location – MK or Westminster, London

Duration – 6 Months Plus

Rate – Please Quote

Start – Immediately     

As a result of an exciting period of change and transformation, this is a newly-created position for a Tester to join this leading, central Government / Emergency Services organisation.

Current or recent DV (Strap) clearance is essential – the role can be based in either The Westminster area of London or Milton Keynes, the contract will be long term and we are particulary interested in ex Police staff or ex military candidates or Testers who are familiar with working in a Security Cleared environment.

Previous experience within this sector outweighs skill or technology knowhow.         

What will I be doing?
You will take responsibility for testing activity across the testing cycle for all changes/enhancements made to their core, business critical application. You will be responsible for understanding different applications and what does and what doesn’t need to be tested and how! Whilst the majority of the testing taking place currently is manual testing, my client is keen to automate as much as possible, so you will be involved in working with and on the most appropriate tools and strategy

What do I need?

Current DV Clearance with Strap

Previous experience of the full testing lifecycle in an Agile environment
Experience of either Manuel, regression, UAT, Smoke Testing, etc., and when and how each should be used
Experience of both manual and automated testing is preferred
Good experience of working with 3rd party suppliers and vendors, as well as internal resources – Project Managers, Business Analysts, etc.
Experience of working within an ITIL environment is preferred.

Nice to have

We are very keen to find Testers who are ex practitioners – i.e. ex-Police Staff, ex-Military or those who have worked in highly secure environment.

I want to do this!
Our client offers a fantastic working environment, coupled with an experienced and welcoming team and extremely interesting work. If you’re an experienced or inexperienced Tester and have any questions or would simply welcome a chat about this excellent position and company, just call me or drop me an email, we’d love to hear from you.
