Job Overview

About The Role

We’re on a journey to transform the way we work at AO. We’re investing £ millions into upgrading our ERP from Dynamics AX to Dynamics 365, bringing the power, speed, and intelligence of cloud computing into our organisation.

The first stop on our roadmap is to embed, optimise and roll out D365 into our Finance team. Then we’ll be integrating other areas such as HR, Sales, and Supply Chain. So we’re looking for a testing specialist to take a lead role and help us deliver this huge transformation project.

As our Test Lead, you’ll put all of your ERP knowledge into practice by testing all areas of functionality in D365 for Finance and Operations. We’ll look to you to really drive quality standards - identifying any risk whilst making sure the needs of the business are met. In this role, you’ll get exposure to the latest and best ERP technology, unrivalled career growth, and the ability to shape the future of ERP at AO.

Here's What You Can Expect To Be Doing

  • Analyse complex information and write concise, high quality test cases and scenarios
  • Execute and maintain manual tests, providing accurate estimation of time to complete the test activities
  • Work with Business Users to prepare use cases, test criteria and test plans and confirm scope for sign off
  • Provide direction and guidance for test process improvements and establishment of policies
  • Prepare an overall Test Strategy, defining the scope of testing within the context of each release / delivery, and applying the appropriate test measurements and metrics
  • Identify, document and track bugs in Azure DevOps, managing these to accurate resolution and successful re-test
  • Coordinate with internal teams, 3rd party suppliers and system integrators around defect management
  • Work proactively with the D365 and IT leadership team to identify areas of improvement, through new technologies, toolsets, and methodologies for Testing.

A Few Things About You

  • Proven experience working as a Test Lead or Analyst, with strong knowledge of test methodologies, tools, and processes
  • Previous ERP testing experience is essential - MS Dynamics Finance and Operations would be preferred, but we’d still love to hear from you if you’ve been exposed to other systems such as Oracle or SAP
  • Experience identifying automation candidates and building tests utilising automation tools
  • An understanding of the Lifecycle Services integrated with Azure DevOps Pipeline
  • Confidence communicating with people at all levels in the business
