I’m pleased to announce I have just started a new contract with Unilever.
From the Unilever website:
No matter who you are, or where in the world you are, the chances are that our products are a familiar part of your daily routine.
Look in your fridge, or on the bathroom shelf, and you’re bound to see one of our well-known brands. We create, market and distribute the products that people choose to feed their families and keep themselves and their homes clean and fresh.
My role at Unilever is Test Manager for an internal Joiners/Movers/Leavers process to be rolled out initially in the UK. I’m responsible for Integration Testing, Service Rehearsal Testing, and UAT, as well as suggesting process improvements and making recommendations for future testing.
This contract fulfils a lifelong ambition to work for a FMCG company, and I’m very excited about this project and the possibility of future projects with Unilever.
I’m pleased to announce I recently started a new short contract with Inatech Solutions.
From the Inatech website:
“Inatech Solutions is a global business solutions software and product engineering services company with strategic locations worldwide, and qualified consultants, working across industries. As an Oracle Platinum Partner and Microsoft Gold Certified partner, Inatech Solutions works with enterprises that are re-engineering their processes and are adapting to rapid change.”
I have been appointed as interim programme test manager for two months, overseeing SIT, UAT, and performance testing on a large integration programme involving a client in the logistics industry. In addition I will be helping to refine existing testing processes and working practices, with a view to outlining an overarching test strategy and consistent approach to be adopted for testing across future programmes.
As usual, I’m looking forward to the challenge!
I’m pleased to announce I started a new contract with Yorkshire Building Society today.
From the Yorkshire Building Society website:
“Yorkshire Building Society is one of the largest building societies in the UK. We have 2.8 million members and assets of over £30 billion.”
I’m to be the overall test manager for a business critical ATM testing workstream within a larger business merger/data migration programme, with responsibility for driving testing through successive phases of system test, UAT, and NFT over the next few months.
This contract marks my return to the financial services sector after a break of ten years, and while I realise it will be a challenge, I’m looking forward to adding to my skills and domain knowledge.
I’ve been making some incremental adjustments to the design of the site over the last few days, culminating in a revamp of the page headers (including the logo) this weekend – all in all, giving the site a fresher, cleaner look.
Two minor changes you might not immediately notice are here on the blog pages:
Firstly, I tidied the meta sections after each post, and moved them up to the top of the post beneath the header.
Secondly, I added a social media sharing link at the bottom of each post where the meta used to be. This site is all about me sharing interesting content with you, so I thought I’d make it easier for you to share anything you like here with others, via Twitter, Facebook, Delicious, Digg, StumbleUpon, etc.
If you have any feedback about the new design, let me know in the comments.
I’m pleased to announce I will be starting a new contract with Ceridian on 6th April.
Ceridian is a provider of global human resources, payroll, benefits, and payment solutions.
