The role will operate a mixture of remote and office-based working depending on the programme delivery and business needs, which are in the City of London.

As the Head of Testing and Delivery Assurance, you will be managing a team of 25 FTE, across multiple testing functions. The team is responsible for the delivery of the platform, conducting Functional, Non-Functional, Data Migration, Service transition and Operational acceptance testing.

Specific Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Execute tests to ensure the reported QA activities have been completed as stated.
  • Ensure contracted suppliers implement solutions using appropriate methodologies and technologies in-line with the agreed project plan.
  • Manage the service provider to co-ordinate and schedule testing activity between the suppliers and internal testing programmes.
  • Identification, management, and implementation of cost efficiencies, along with associated risks and mitigations.

The successful candidate will:

  • Have a strong test management background at a Senior level, with a proven track recording of delivering quality through testing in large, complex projects involving external suppliers in an onshore/offshore environment.
  • Be an experienced Senior Manager and have led a testing team (15+ FTE) through the delivery of a major platform.
  • Be well versed with project management fundamentals, working in both waterfall and agile delivery months.
  • Ideally have worked in the Financial Services sector but this by no means essential.
