We plan to deliver significant business change programmes and projects in the next few years and we are leading on the implementation of a National Defibrillator Database (NDD) to be actively used by every ambulance service in the UK.

About the role

We're recruiting for a Senior Tester to play a leading role in this programme which is leading major change programme across the 14 UK Ambulance Services, aiming to transform the mapping of defibrillators and their deployment with the intention of increasing survival rates from out of hospital cardiac arrest.

You'll work closely with the NDD programme team, emergency services from across the UK and multiple technology teams and partners to ensure the successful delivery of this programme. You'll be involved in the development and implementation of the NDD which will be managed in a blended AGILE (Scrum) \ Prince2 environment.

You'll be primarily based at our London head office but will be required to travel to individual Ambulance Services across the UK as the project progresses. You will coordinate with technology teams and partners to ensure that collaborative work leads to the successful delivery of the overall test strategy, creating a test strategy; plan resources (as required) develop test plans and are hands on with testing where it is required.

This role will also lead on the writing and execution of test scripts/cases; ensuring that test results are recorded and documented and oversee the set-up and maintenance of test artefacts for the assigned programmes/projects.

An experienced senior tester / lead on waterfall and/or AGILE projects, you'll also have experience of working with 3rd party suppliers and have experience of working on projects involving a high degree of stakeholder engagement and change.

With a track record of building positive relationships and working with business stakeholders, colleagues, support teams and suppliers, you'll have knowledge of Agile (Scrum) delivery and a passion for quality assurance, testing and analysis.

You'll be experienced in writing test plans and test scripts to a high standard and have the ability to plan and prioritise your own workload and working to deadlines with excellent problem solving and analytical thinking skills.
