Role: Tester

Location: Various across Scotland

Hours: 35 hours per week

Contract: Temporary for one year

Salary: Grade 6. £35,733 to £39,069 (Pay award pending)

What do we do?

As a regulator, we inspect 14,000 care and social work registered care services in Scotland to make sure these services meet the right standards and helps them improve where necessary.

We are recruiting a Tester to work within our Business Transformation team to build new applications to meet the Care Inspectorate business requirements over the next 12 months.

The Care Inspectorate has a wide range of users of its services: people who provide care, people who use care, people who commission care, people who wish to raise a concern about care, care inspectors and improvement advisors, other scrutiny partners, government and the public.  There is an urgent need to transform the service provided to all of these users.  Current systems do not have the technical capacity or flexibility to support all of these user needs.  This significantly restricts our ability to deliver world class approaches to risk based, intelligence led scrutiny and improvement and meet the diverse needs of all our stakeholders.

What are we looking for?

We have recruited an Agile team to work within our Digital Transformation team, to build new applications to meet the Care Inspectorate business requirements and we are now looking for a talented Tester to work within the Agile Team.

Over the next 12 months, the Tester will support the Business Transformation team by testing stories through each sprint to make sure that testing is well defined, planned and executed. The Tester will also create end-to-end test plans; executing the plans and managing all activities in the plans to ensure that all the acceptance criteria of new feature development is met to the highest standard of quality.
