An Analyst position has arisen within the Identity Services Tooling team within IT Cyber Security. The role is working primarily within the Identity Services Function to provide analytical support to a team which is focussed on delivery of automation for Identity and authentication/authorisation services to Lloyds Banking Group.

You'll assist in creating and setting the direction and approach for Automated Testing across the team to support the ongoing development of products and projects. You'll be working alongside developers to influence the design of testable code and platform engineers to integrate your tests into Continuous Delivery pipelines. The choice of tools, technologies and approaches will be wide and varied and you'll have a strong influence over quality practices within the project.

The role requires a rigid focus on delivery of agreed milestones as development is performed in line with a strictly controlled release schedule. These releases contain a mixture of product fixes, patches and new or revised functionality delivered as part of the business project portfolio.


Your accountabilities will include;

  • Analysing test requirements, designing and producing re-usable test scripts and specifying requirements for environments, data and test tools required.

  • Overcoming development obstacles to deliver quality testing on time.

  • Reviewing test artefacts produced by peers.

  • Reviewing test results and modify the test suite as necessary.

  • Defining and creating test cases from the analysis of non-functional specifications.

  • Designing and implementing functional and performance test scripts, and security tests.

  • Analysing requirements for test automation, designing and implementing the technical solution regardless of approach.

  • Reviewing and assuring the scope and execution of Unit Tests and Integration Tests performed by Software Engineers.

  • Working closely with other Engineers to describing to how their work will be, or has been, tested such that the Software Engineers gains insight into the tester's interpretation of the requirements.

  • Undertake exploratory testing where scripted testing is inappropriate or unnecessary.


You'll be working with existing Analysts and Developers within the team and will be expected to be able to perform both Analysis and support activity. As such, you'll be required to gather comprehensive requirements, taking responsibility for writing test plans, supporting developers perform their testing and deployments. You'll also be expected to work closely with existing members of the team to achieve success. Other responsibilities will include working closely with Developers to scope out technical solutions, attending project meetings, providing quotes and estimates; and providing a point of contact for business projects. Manual testing will be required as well due to the nature of the products in use within the company.


About you;

  • You'll have experience in the delivery of projects, through all phases of the Project Lifecycle; from Requirements Capture, through Functional and Technical Design, Development, Testing, Implementation and Support.

  • The capability to deliver associated project deliverables at each phase of the life cycle is also critical.

  • You'll have proven ability for working closely with Analysts and other Developers on both a technical and non-technical basis, to have the ability to communicate technically with those who need technical explanations, but also to be able to explain clearly and concisely in a non-technical way.


Additionally you'll define clear and concise functional and non-functional requirements, write automated test scripts using Selenium based automated testing tools and collaborate with other teams in order to support project delivery.


What would you get in return?

You'd get a benefits package that includes;

  • A performance related discretionary bonus

  • Generous pension contribution

  • 28 days leave plus bank holidays

  • A flexible cash pot (4% of base salary) to spend on benefits

  • Private health cover

  • Wider corporate benefits and perks


We're dedicated to giving you opportunities and support to develop you both expertly and personally to optimise your potential.


As a new colleague, you'll join us on our journey to build a 21st century bank that reflects modern Britain, and craft an inclusive culture where all colleagues feel encouraged and valued.

We're committed to building a workforce which reflects the diversity of the customers and communities we serve, and to building an inclusive environment where all our colleagues can be themselves and succeed on merit. We support the principles of agile working and are happy to consider flexible working arrangements. We're an equal opportunity employer and deeply value diversity within our organisation.


Together we make it possible.
