Ref: 392 Date Posted: Thursday 13 Jul 2023

Evolve-IT’s Financial client within the heart of the city centre in Edinburgh is looking to expand their Test capabilities over the coming months ahead of a number of change portfolio initiatives throughout the year. As such they are looking for a hands-on Test Manager, or experienced Test Team lead with Management experience. The client is a close nit team with service delivery excellence at the centre of everything they do and would be a fantastic opportunity for the successful candidate to aid the client in achieving strategic milestones for the firm over the coming years.

Working closely with the Head of Change, the successful candidates will be working with internal and external 3rd party resources, providing strategy and leaderships whilst working through the implantation of an exciting change portfolio. If your previous experience aligns with the below experience, I am very keen to have a chat through the role and your CV in more detail and hopefully assist you through the interview process.

Ideal Candidate

  • Our client is proud of the internal culture they have been fostering over recent years.

They are very much looking for likeminded individuals to positively contribute towards this mentality over the coming years.

  • Strong problem solving capabilities with an analytical mind set looking to impress with your keen eye for detail.
