DWP is the UK's largest government department. We deliver products, service, support and payments to people at key times in their lives.

We're using technology to transform the way these products and services are delivered to more than 20 million users. We're making our services more efficient, and reliable, and easier for everyone to access.

We're also equipping around 90,000 DWP colleagues with the tech and tools they need to better support our users and spend more time doing the work they love and which gives real value (and less time doing the stuff that tech solutions can do for them).

You'll also be hands-on designing automation frameworks and scripts to deliver efficient and effective testing. You will plan the delivery of automated scripts (including regression packs) and you'll be generous with your automation knowledge and skills to help our test teams develop.

You will…

🚀 Set the strategic direction for product teams and the Test Engineering community.

🚀 Lead delivery of testing activities, ensuring that quality, time and cost objectives are met.

🚀 Act as an escalation point for defects or issues preventing delivery of Test Engineering activities.

🚀 Define the approach for test infrastructure setup and use outputs to drive technical improvements.

🚀 Identify appropriate required technical test tools.

🚀 Monitor performance of the test suite and identify how this can be improved by reducing technical debt.
