Ofgem works on behalf of energy consumers to ensure that every household and business in the UK can rely on a safe, affordable and environmentally sustainable energy supply. We are playing a vital part in accelerating the transition to Net Zero and a carbon neutral energy system - a goal that everyone wants to achieve. Whatever your role, you'll be playing your part in creating new energy solutions that are great for customers, and for the environment.

Our Delivery & Schemes Directorate is our delivery arm and manages a number of high-profile environmental programmes. It's a dynamic place to work, and you can expect to be involved in ground-breaking work. Our flexible working career opportunities are incredibly varied, so we are committed to recruiting talented people from a diverse range of professional and personal backgrounds - bringing different experiences to our work.

This is a brand-new role in our organisation - working on the recently announced Boiler Upgrade Scheme that will provide government funding for homeowners who want to change their traditional boilers for more environmentally friendly methods, such as heat pumps. We're developing a digital platform for applications and payments related to the scheme, which will be an essential tool in the successful launch and management of the scheme. You'll be part of a friendly and collaborative team that works with Agile development & QA methodologies to plan and write automated tests, using BDD (Behaviour Driven Development). You ‘ll become the team's subject matter expert in the configuration, maintenance, and/or administration of testing tools or environments.

It's important that you can demonstrate a good track record of working in collaboration as part of multi-disciplinary teams. As well as a strong understanding of Agile (Scrum, Kanban) development & QA methodologies you should also be experienced in using SQL to interrogate databases and assisting with fault diagnosis in a relevant setting. As well as good knowledge of writing automation tests, utilising Specflow, and Selenium in .NET, you should have undertaken functional testing at various levels, such as:

   •   Integration Testing
   •   Smoke Testing
   •   User Acceptance Testing
   •   Interface Testing / Usability Testing
   •   System Testing
   •   API Testing
   •   Regression Testing
