IT Testing Graduate

Job description

There’s never been a better time to be a testing graduate at Fujitsu. It’s all about leading the way forward as we continue to develop our Agile and DevOps ways of working to meet customer demands and remain relevant in a changing marketplace.

As a graduate you will be:

  • Using your technical skills as well as your testing skills as part of a cross functional team
  • Working closely with customers to understand what they need, and with developers and architects to deliver a high quality product or service
  • Taking control of your own work and tasks to be a fundamental part of a self-organising team
  • Trained in automated testing – having existing skills is desirable but not a requirement, however you should have a strong interest in it and a desire to learn

As part of the IT Testing Graduate Scheme you will gain internationally recognised testing qualifications provided by the ISTQB board including foundation level, advanced level and agile. This training will include traditional testing methods as an important part of developing your testing skills, but we are driving towards change. We want graduates who will be proactive in steering us in the right direction, towards a more Agile way of working.

Your daily responsibilities will include:

  • Analysing a system’s design and preparing test scripts according to the test plan
  • Executing those scripts and recording the results
  • Checking and reporting on test results, logging defects and supporting development teams in resolving and retesting them
  • Liaising with other stakeholders to gather information regarding test readiness and quality of the product or service
  • Being a Fujitsu graduate is far more than your daily activities though. You’ll have the opportunity to shape the future of testing services.

For example, past graduates have worked on creating a new social platform for testing colleagues to share knowledge; written case studies to assist our sales team in improving our offerings and winning bids for new business; volunteered at the RAF Centurial Anniversary event promoting STEM subjects and careers in technology to young people; developed standardised goals for new graduates and apprentices to define what is expected of them and inspire them to go beyond.

At Fujitsu you’re encouraged to develop yourself beyond the role you’re employed to do, we’ll provide plenty of possibilities but your future is in your own hands.

If this feels like something you’d enjoy being part of, you’re already showing the kind of enthusiasm we want to see in our graduates. But to give a little more detail, we want applicants who:

  • Can communicate complex ideas effectively to a wide variety of audiences
  • Are inquisitive but methodical, with a keen attention to detail
  • Won’t back down when it comes to ensuring quality for our customers – integrity is key but so is diplomacy when necessary
  • Have an awareness of Waterfall, Agile and DevOps methodologies
  • Have technical skills that would allow you to adapt quickly to new technologies and testing techniques & tooling e.g. a degree in computer science
  • Are happy to work in a variety of environments at a variety of locations
  • Are passionate about continuous improvement and are driven to follow through on their ideas

So, do you want to be a Fujitsu IT testing graduate?
