Senior Manual Tester – Government
SR2 is looking for a Senior Manual Tester to sit across 3 projects on a long-term government transformation project.
We are looking for someone with oversight of QA/testing across three projects to work on their own initiative in manual testing and influencing the product owner and developers to enhance automated test coverage in high-risk areas. We also want this function to operate out-of-band with the build pipeline and avoid QA being a process gate.
One of the key attributes we are looking for is somebody who can proactively determine which areas are high risk, and to either manually test these themselves or feedback to the developers where automation coverage is required. This requires a good understanding of the products and workflows, being able to identify potential pain points, and then influencing the team and clearly articulate the needs/reasons/solutions / approaches.
We need someone who can set things up and lead/take ownership of them in this space and creating processes, tickets and criteria. There is an element of proactivity in identifying risks and prioritising responses, working with autonomy and understanding the security aspects of the products and how to test them associated with the role too.
This is an urgent role offering a 5-month rolling contract outside of IR35.
