The Vacancy

About the role: To support the testing phase of our business transformation with the preparation and execution of test scenarios for housing repairs and associated financial data to enable the team to test system functionality effectively across the new housing management system.

You will be responsible for accurately inputting repair scenario data and works orders ensuring the that the information is accurate and cross-referenced. Updating records and ensuring correct documentation is collated and analysed, conducting regular data checks to identify and rectify discrepancies or errors. Producing related reports for further analysis and dissemination.    

You will report to the Process & Systems Manager who will support your training and development in the role. As part of our friendly and responsive team you will be helping us achieve our vision of “delivering homes that our customers can rely on and that helps them live well”. We want to hear from people who are passionate about putting our customer first and possess a strong work ethic and a flexible approach with great collaborative abilities.

About you: We are looking for someone with great communication and teamwork skills, with an analytical mindset with a very strong attention to detail. You don’t need experience per-se; although systems skills and a curiosity for how to test and improve systems are important attributes.  

Initial training will be for around 3-4 weeks and will require full office attendance (Mon-Fri), after which time a hybrid model will apply working via a mixture of office, remote and homeworking (2 days office and 3 remote, - if full time).

This role would be a great foundation for someone who is looking for a career in testing/business improvement. Alternatively, you may have relevant work experience including data validation and want to work flexibly/part time.
