• Be able to co-ordinate UAT and re-testing throughout the organisation in relation to monthly releases and projects
• Excellent documentation and report writing skills
• Awareness of the software development life cycle
• A challenging and enquiring mindset
• Attention to detail

Desirable (but not essential)

• Hands-on experience of software development
• Awareness of the Agile methodology
• Project management experience
• SQL and reporting expertise

If this sounds at all of interest please don't delay in applying for a full role description and further details.
