Fantastic Opportunity to join NHS National Services Scotland

1 year Fixed Term/Secondment

As a vital part of NHSScotland, NHS National Services Scotland’s mission is to enable and support the delivery of better health and better care, working in partnership with other NHS Boards. We do this by providing a range of specialised support services that enable NHS Boards to focus their efforts on delivering health improvement and patient care.

NSS, on behalf of the Health Boards and Primary Care General Practice, has recently procured next-generation GP IT systems, to be delivered as a centrally hosted managed service, which will be rolled out to all GP Practices across Scotland. In order to achieve this successfully, NSS are seeking to recruit a Test Analyst to assist in the planning and co-ordinate the testing of these new IT Services to ensure that they are clinically safe and fully meet the NHSScotland specification. Working collaboratively with three GP IT system suppliers, Clinicians, GP IT facilitators and other Subject Matter Experts under the direction of the GP IT Test Manager, will develop and implement a test strategy to ensure the new GP IT Services are fit for purpose. This activity will be supported by a GP IT Implementation Project Team and dedicated GP IT staff from the Contract, Vendor and Service Management Team (CVSMT) at NSS.

The ideal candidate will have proven experience in a tester role and have a strong working background in system testing. The candidate will demonstrate experience in testing approaches and processes and have innovative ideas for measuring and improving test quality, including defect management. The candidate will have excellent communications skills and a rigorous, structured and disciplined approach, with proven experience with either Atlassian Jira Software, HP Quality Centre / Micro Focus or Service Now. The candidate will be able to work to challenging timescales and deliver to planned schedules. The ideal candidate will have an IT / computing degree and ISTQB/ISEB Certification in Testing.

Our benefits package includes pension scheme, comprehensive range of work life balance policies, occupational health services, learning resource centres and discounted leisure, financial and shopping benefits.
