Test Lead - Automation / Front End - Edinburgh - to 50k + Great Benefits

Test Lead, it’s a great title, but in the wrong environment it can sometimes go to waste. So if you’ve been ambitious enough to get to the rank, but are now thinking ‘surely there must be a better place for me to be using my skills’, then you’d be right, because an opportunity has popped up with one of the UK’s top employers and they’re looking for someone like you to come onboard!

Abrecco’s client, an established, enterprise scale organisation based in the heart of Edinburgh’s city centre, now has an opening for a talented hands-off Test Lead to be a driving force across a couple of their testing teams. The lucky individual will be well rewarded for their efforts as they oversee and shape testing strategies, identify areas for improvement, engage with key stakeholders and mentor less experienced Testers, all to ensure successful delivery of robust front end web solutions. So if you feel like you can step up to the plate here and want to hear more, apply now and let’s have a chat about the finer details!

To give you some more info as to what the role will entail and what our client’s looking for, have a look at this:

What you’ll be doing;
- Being a technically hands-off figure in test planning, coordination and shaping overarching test strategies
- Working closely with peers and key stakeholders, providing test estimates and oversights
- Finding opportunities to incorporate test automation where possible in a mostly manual environment
- Identifying areas for improvement and alternative testing techniques
- Managing and preventing risks going forward
- Mentoring less experienced team members and motivating two teams working on different projects

Personal and Technical Attributes;
- Experience in a Test Lead or Test Management position, leading testers who are utilising automation tools
- A background in Front End Web and Functional testing
- Excellent communication skills, a proactive mindset, and a proven track record of leadership
- Ideally you’ll have worked with SOAP UI or Smartbear Test Complete
- Skills in test automation would be very advantageous, such as automating test scripts end to end
- Knowledge of Episerver and Agile practices would be beneficial, but opportunities for training exist

This is an excellent opportunity for a Test Lead to join a very well-known and successful enterprise scale organisation who loves to take care of their employees. You’ll be rewarded with a salary of up to £50,000 alongside one of the best benefits packages out there, so apply right away with your most recent CV for immediate consideration!
