Software Test Analyst
I completed FDM 8 week software testing course followed by nearly 2 years of experience working in the software
testing field. I am currently working in Yorkshire Building Society on Arrears project for FDM Group since September
2013. Prior to that worked in Cubic Transportation Systems Ltd doing regression testing. I am very results driven, with
attention to detail and pragmatic approach. I tend to plan out my activities, which can be reflected in my work. While on
the project I enjoy teamwork and cooperation between the team members. I particularly enjoy the busy periods when
the project takes off properly as this challenges me. During the time spent testing I honed my communication skills and
learnt how to approach different types of people and engage in efficient information transfer.
