Tester

Job reference: 
VCC034

Location: WC1N, Central London

Salary: Competitive

Contract type: Full-time, 12 month fixed-term contract

Closing date: 9am, Friday 13 October

Every day brings new challenges at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). Every day, 618 seriously ill children from across the UK arrive for life-changing treatments. Every day, young lives hang in the balance as patients, families and staff battle the most complex illnesses. And every day, the brightest minds come together to achieve pioneering medical breakthroughs that change the lives of thousands of children – and change the world. This extraordinary hospital has always depended on charitable support to give seriously ill children the best chance to fulfil their potential. Without donations, Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity can’t help fund ground breaking research, advanced equipment, child and family support services, and the rebuilding and refurbishment of wards and medical facilities. Our staff help to raise these vital funds for the hospital. A better future for seriously ill children starts with you.
 
The charity has invested significantly in its technology infrastructure and software, in addition to the skilled people and teams needed to manage and develop its strategic future developments.
 
The Tester plays a vital role within the Projects team and one which will vary depending on particular project requirements. The post holder may join a project at the initial implementation stages, to assess potential testing risks, or be brought on to a project midway through, when testing becomes a key requirement.

Flexibility and a proactive, can-do attitude, allied to a strong sense of personal responsibility to meet personal and projects’ deadlines, particularly prior to software implementation and go-live, are essential for this role.
