Staying one step ahead of crime means changing the face of policing. That’s what digital is helping us to do as we look to improve the safety of over 8 million Londoners. If the potential of digital drives you too, you could be central to the success of Digital Policing projects which range in size from £50k to £100m.
You’ll be instrumental in delivering products and services that are fit for use by the largest police service in the UK. This hands-on role will see you take full responsibility for providing a performance test service to stakeholders and projects, and advise on performance test issues, risks and recommended actions for improvement.
It will range from providing consultancy to a project – advising on the approach and what is possible – to producing and presenting the test results. Throughout, you’ll help ensure that new and upgraded ICT systems, configurations, packages and services, together with any interfaces, perform as specified in the business, user and operations domains.
You’ll need to bring us ISEB or ISTQB accreditation and training, plus knowledge of Jira, Confluence and Adaptavist for incident and collateral recording, and practical skills in Neoload and JMeter performance tools.
In addition, you’ll be used to working in Agile environments, and have Extensive knowledge of ICT testing in a multi-vendor outsourced environment. Beyond this, you’ll have a track record of delivering performance and non-functional testing to large-scale and mobile applications projects in a complex environment which uses both in-house and supplier based delivery methods.
There’s a lot to look forward to in return. To begin with, you’ll enjoy every chance to develop via continuous learning, good work/ life balance and a wide range of benefits.
We’re committed to creating an inclusive working environment and welcome people who are looking for flexible arrangements including part time working, job share or carers and career break returners. We also support blended working.
Policing London is a hugely complex challenge that evolves every day. We are therefore committed to ensuring our staff and officers can develop the right IT skills with a continuous learning culture.
