Capita IT Resourcing is recruiting for a Test Team Lead to join a software solutions company based in Chertsey on a permanent basis. The successful candidate will be tasked with creating and implementing the automation testing strategy for the whole business whilst also providing leadership for a team of 4 testers. The work to automate all of the testing within the business has already begun but coverage is currently circa 20% so there is a real opportunity for someone to come on board, take ownership and really put their name against a major transformation.

Of the automation work that has already been done the tools used so far include TestComplete and Selenium so experience of these would be highly beneficial. Having said this the company is not wedded to those tools and the successful candidate in this role will have the opportunity to choose the best tools for the job as they see fit and push the strategy in the way that they think is best.

The role is not just strategic, however, the successful candidate will be expected to carry out the testing themselves, role modelling industry standard best practice and challenging the team and the wider business to do the same.

The final element of the role (accounting for circa 20% of your time) will be to provide leadership for your team of 4. This will include not just daily task allocation but also appraisals, mentoring, training, long-term goal setting and career development.

This role will suit a candidate who is ready to take a step-up into a strategic role without going hands-off as well as having a passion for the people side of the role, providing guidance, support and leadership.

Key skills and experience:

- Test automation experience including (but not limited to) TestComplete, QTP, Selenium, Protractor, Postman, Jasmine, etc

- Coding experience using one or more of the following: Java, C#, VBScript, JavaScript

- Experience of mentoring and leading a team

- A passion for all things automated and people development

If you are interested in the role and would like to apply, please send me your CV in response to this advert for immediate consideration.
