Full Time
ROQ is one of the UK’s leading providers of software testing solutions, and we are now recruiting graduates with degrees in Computer Science, Computing, Software Development, Software Engineering, Games Design or similar. Alternatively, you may be studying for a non-IT degree where you’re able to use and demonstrate strong analytical and problem solving skills. However, if you are ambitious, show high attention to detail, are willing to work hard and you care about getting great results, we would love to hear from you.

The ROQ Journey

Your ROQ journey begins with a tailored induction programme where you will learn all about the business, gain an insight into testing as your chosen career, discover more about ROQ’s services and clients, and find out what makes us a great employer.

As part of our unique induction programme, you will also have the opportunity to spend valuable time with the Directors on an adventure away-day, where the focus is on team-building and getting to know your fellow 2018 Graduate colleagues.

ROQ ‘s clients are large, often international private and public sector organisations and you will be exposed to multiple industries and gain knowledge through working on a variety of projects. The training is skills-based and the induction programme is designed to inform and educate about the different types of testing including manual, automation, functional and performance, and the test tools associated with each.

After the initial induction programme, ROQ graduates are offered continued support, coaching and mentoring by our team of experienced test professionals and training which will be tailored to suit your needs. We are proud to offer our graduates the opportunity to sit the ISTQB Foundation qualification within the first 12 months of employment.

Pay and Benefits

ROQ offers a competitive starting salary and a comprehensive benefits package including a free Fitbit™, great discounts including free mobile phone insurance, retail offers and reduced priced cinema tickets.

Additionally, we have a great pension scheme, life assurance and a ‘buy and sell’ holidays initiative. We provide a charity matching initiative where ROQ will match your donation by up to £200 per year in addition to giving you a paid day’s leave each year to support your charity work.

In Summary

ROQ is proud to work with some of the world’s leading organisations across a wide range of sectors, and we give our graduates essential experience across a variety of projects, teams and technologies. We will provide you with challenging assignments, an opportunity to work with like-minded and talented test professionals at all levels, in a supportive and fun environment and with a formal but flexible career development plan.

Our Test Lab has a fantastic American diner-themed kitchen, social area including a pool table, darts and table football and we’re located close to a gym, Buckshaw Parkway train station, Costa, Tesco, Subway and Starbucks.

We’re also not far from both the M6 and M61 motorways and offer free parking on-site. Oh, and did we mention the annual Summer event and Christmas party for the whole company?

If you want to be part of a fantastic team and a work for a company that genuinely cares about its employees, then please apply today!
