I joined Doris in September 2013 as part of their Advanced and Higher Apprentice scheme as a Test Analyst for the Co-operative Bank. After successfully completing my Level 3 and Level 4 apprenticeship in 2 years, I am now working as a professional Automation Engineer and Functional Test Lead.
The aim of Functional Testing is to find defects in software products, this is done by creating and executing scripts to reflect the requirements. This is to see if the software created matches the business specified in formal requirements.
In the time since I joined Doris, I have been funded through my level 3 & level 4 IT professionals NVQ and the foundation ISTQB qualification. I am currently studying for my Prince2 exam.
Outside of work I like to socialise with friends and I usually spend my spare time going to live music events with friends or visiting National Trust and English Heritage sites.
