This represents a unique opportunity to lead a small team of test analysts and would suit an enthusiastic and committed test professional keen to make a real and valued contribution to a significant project.

All candidates must minimally be eligible to be security clearable.

Your future duties and responsibilities

The Test Team Lead will effectively lead a team of test analysts working on CGI’s smart metering programme, ensuring the workload of the team is effectively planned to ensure timely delivery, as well as assisting team members with issues and defect triage and reporting.

Leading the software testing team will entail allocation of resources and management of work currently being tested, contributing to the quality of the software produced and identifying product risks through the testing performed. The Test Team lead will be responsible for encouraging career development and personal growth within their team to ensure we maximise the team’s full potential.

Accurate reporting, collaboration with project stakeholders and associated delivery teams in resolution of issues or defects is also a key aspect of this role. The Test Team Lead will also, from time to time, be required to keep hands-on by producing and running tests and raising defects.

Other activities could include knowledge sharing, engaging with designers/developer to clarify features and functionality, functional and non-functional testing, defect tracking and leading the development of the software testing process.

Knowledge/experience gained in the test and defect management tools the team uses is important - for example HP ALM or Open Source (Jira), likely built on testing experience gained in a structured testing environment, likely around Waterfall, V-model or Agile.

Any experience of working in the Utilities Sector or knowledge of Smart Metering would be desirable but not essential.
