A further education qualification in a computer related discipline or demonstrable relevant practical experience is essential with a proven track record of testing software developments in a structured environment preferably using java-developed web based systems.  The ability to question team members and SMEs to discover details of proposed functionality, rather than gather all information from formal documentation is required and then to fully understand the scope of testing, including which business processes and system functions need to be included.  The ability to test partially-completed functionality, understand what a defect is and what has not been implemented yet, and provide constructive feedback to developers.
