Job Role

As the Test Team Leader, you’ll be responsible for test planning, analysis and management of all testing activities across lots of projects and programmes, leading a team of testers to carry out the testing on a range of software products across multiple platforms and technologies.

Requirements & Experience

This is a test management role, with minimal hands-on testing needed although there may be some from time to time. You’ll be responsible for leading a team of testers, managing and delegating their workload, defining the test plans and managing the test deliverables.

You’ll be working alongside the business to make sure the testing function is doing what it should, whilst working on ways to improve the testing approach and how this works with the business.

The Testing function has only been live in the business for a couple of years, so although it’s already set up, they are looking for someone to take ownership and help with further improvement. This will involve working with the business to understand what’s happening now and what’s coming over the next few years and working out how the testing environment can work alongside this, how the testing can be improved, and what needs to happen for it to be successful.
