  • Creates traceability records, from test cases back to requirements. Produces test scripts, materials and regression test packs to test new and amended software or services.
  • Specifies requirements for environment, data, resources and tools. Interprets, executes and documents complex test scripts using agreed methods and standards.
  • Records and analyzes actions and results and maintains a defect register.
  • Reviews test results and modifies tests if necessary. Provides reports on progress, anomalies, risks and issues associated with the overall project. Reports on system quality and collects metrics on test cases. Provides specialist advice to support others.

  1. Business Process Testing (BPTS)

  • Designs and manages tests of new/updated processes. Specifies test environment for whole life-cycle testing (e.g., using model office concept).
  • Manages selection/creation of relevant scenarios for testing and ensures that tests reflect realistic operational business conditions.
  • Ensures tests and results are documented, reported to stakeholders and are available for specification of user instructions. Highlights issues and risks identified during testing to business stakeholders.
  • Provides specialist guidance and advice to less experienced colleagues and users to ensure that tests are conducted in an appropriate manner.

  1. User Experience Analysis (UNAN)
  • Analyzes qualitative data (e.g., from site visits) and presents the data in ways that can be used to drive design (e.g., personas, red routes, user journey maps
