I led programme testing for E2E, SIT and UAT.
I was accountable for all functional and non-functional aspects of programme-level testing and E2E release management activities; creating test strategies, progress reports and test closure documents for key deliveries as well as planning & overseeing UAT cycles with external customers and third-party partners.
I line-managed the test team and external suppliers.
As Test Manager, I managed a team of permanent and contract Test Leads, who in turn were responsible for Test Analysts and Test Engineers. I also managed the test team provided by the PSGA Testing external supplier.
I was responsible for resource budgeting and forecasting.
I managed the fixed-figure test budget, by forecasting resources and spend based on the programme’s testing and contractual requirements.
