Job responsibilities

The IT Quality Assurance Manager is responsible for the design and delivery of our end to end IT quality processes, ensuring that IT deliverables meet functional and non-functional requirements. Reporting into the Software Solutions and Architecture Manager, the role will create and establish a Quality Assurance function from the ground up, establishing a new team and processes over both a large SAP ERP programme and BAU.

Aligned to the Digital Transformation Strategy the Quality Assurance function will seek new ways of working, such as test automation and agile governance to ensure that speed of delivery does not impact the quality of the deliverable.

As a senior leader within the organisation, the Quality Assurance Manager will design and implement appropriate levels of governance across all aspects of the IT delivery lifecycle, representing the relevant “gates” of agile and waterfall delivery.
