Job Description

We are expanding our team and have a new role for a Junior Software Tester to work in our office in the City. No previous experience is required as full training will be provided.

We're looking for a special person who has the aptitude to eventually become the best in our profession - it's challenging but rewarding and you'll be working with a great team who will support and mentor you.

You will learn the technologies that are used to build everything we test and also the wide range of testing techniques that we use. Eventually you will learn test automation and will have opportunities to move into management, consultancy, sales or simply keep becoming a better tester.

About You

You're likely to be inquisitive, always questioning how and why things happen. It helps if you're passionate about technology and already have some knowledge of how websites and mobile apps are built and work. But that's not essential if you've got the right attitude.

You've got to want to learn - there will be a lot of that, at least for the first 20 or 30 years! And forget anything you've read about testing elsewhere - our approach is unique in the UK. It's an exciting intellectual challenge - a technical investigation, not an exercise in bureaucracy.

Candidate Knowledge

Good GCSEs in English and Maths are highly desirable.

We don't expect you to have any technical skills but if you know any HTML, CSS or JavaScript it's a distinct advantage. Likewise if you have built websites, installed operating systems etc.

Required Skills

Numeracy and good written and spoken English are essential, while proficiency in Microsoft Word and Excel are highly desirable. Most of our testers have at least a first degree but it's not essential.

About Test Partners
