Although based in Sheffield, the Software Tester / Test Analyst would require some occasional travel to visit to other offices as well as some travel to perform validations at our customer’s facilities both in the UK and abroad.

The role is also open to Graduates with a Science Based Degree who have some Laboratory Experience.

A full Driving Licence is required.
