Staffordshire University is working hard to become the UK’s premier digitally led university. We are already leading the way in the sector by adopting Microsoft cloud technologies and becoming the UK’s first Microsoft ‘Beacon University’. We are embarking on an ambitious portfolio of change to support our ‘Connected University’ strategy, focused on teaching & learning and the student experience. Our people will be key to its success, so we want to hear from dynamic, highly competent, customer focused IT/digital professionals that relish the opportunity to be part of our new Digital Services team and play a key role in delivering our ambitious plans.
Reporting into the Test Lead, you’ll play a key role in supporting the development of a robust Testing environment and provide input into the design, execution and reporting of testing activities and process, including applying and using appropriate testing tools and techniques and conforming to agreed process standards. In order to have a robust testing environment, you’ll work closely with project and applications teams so that all risks associated with the testing are mitigated. You’ll use and maintain testware (test cases, test scripts, test reports, test plans, etc) to measure and improve the quality of systems and applications deployment. You’ll also work with the Test Lead to assess and advise on the practicality of testing processes and initiate improvements to test processes and protocols including contributing to the development of automated test environments to support the timely release of new solutions.
We are keen to hear from customer focused, self-motivated, well organised IT/digital professionals with a passion for future state technologies, with a track record of operating effectively within and contributing to the development of robust testing environments to support the delivery of digital/IT projects and changes into business as usual within a digitally literate and demanding customer base operating in rapidly changing complex customer centric project environment.
