  • Communicate test progress, results and other information to project team and management
  • Work closely with Test Manager and head of application delivery to find a way to deliver robust test approaches to the business
  • Ensure the continuous professional development of testers with the team

The successful Test Team Lead will be working with both Agile and Waterfall methodologies depending on the projects. You should have experience of both and also of:

  • Functional Testing, Integration Testing, Regression Testing, load/volume and performance testing
  • Reviewing test plans and highlighting areas for improvement
  • Excellent people management experience
  • Writing test plans, scripts, regression testing and analysis
