Test Team Lead / Test Manager

+ 3 month contract + extensions

+ £300 to £330 per day - Inside IR35

+ Full remote / home based (occasional onsite meetings at Milton Keynes)

Job spec:

+ Manages IT Test delivery (can include Functional, Performance, Security and other Non-Functional Testing activities), in line with defined overall testing approach (methodology), key inputs and dependencies, tooling, resource demands

+ Deliverables - supports definition and creation of Project Test Strategies where projects are defined as churn or simple to medium complexity. Where projects sit outside of this rating may be required to work alongside assigned Test Consultant to support the creation of testing solutions and test strategies, and other test deliverables for programmes or large projects.

+ Creates project based estimates, using designated estimation tools and other test collateral, (Test Plans, test schedule, test reports etc), based on known/assumed scope and execution activities

+ Involvement is focussed on individual projects rather than across programmes - takes steer from Test Consultant when scope is large size, complexity high, and contains many other technical aspects - hardware/network/development language

+ Influences at the start of projects, and during testing lifecycle delivery, on requirement ideas/concepts, challenging and asking specific questions, giving testing industry insight, aligns with similar type projects - all leading to aiding and improving efficient design, development and testing approaches.

+ Supports the shifts left focus into design and development so that testing influences and drives the outputs and quality from these domains. This includes alignment of dependent domains (i.e. solution architects) and potentially 3rd Party Suppliers where DXC acts as the primary System Integrator.

+ Confirms testability of lesser complex project requirements - clarifies ambiguous elements and aligns/sets expectations on actions/owners

+ Supports Test Consultants in carrying out health checks whilst delivery in flow - complies to defined Test Strategy and quality of test collateral and deliverables
