Company: Greggs Plc

Vacancy Details

An exciting opportunity has arisen for the right candidate to join the IT Test Team based in Newcastle.  This is a 12 month fixed term contract, due to a new and exciting project within our Next Generation Greggs function.

We are currently working on an overhaul of our POS systems across the full Greggs estate; this will entail upgrading and replacing over 8000 tills.  We are moving over to a cloud based solution and using high tech solutions to ensure our POS system is the best it can be.  This is an exciting time for Greggs as we move into a more digital focused customer transformation journey.

We are looking for someone that is ideally familiar with testing POS systems but not essential, comfortable with cloud solutions like Azure and has a good understanding of API testing.  However, we will provide training for any skill or knowledge gaps to the right candidate.  If you have a passion to learn new tools and ways of testing then this maybe the right role for you.

Join the Family

Here at Greggs, we love what we do and we have fun! What makes Greggs so special is our culture – the way we are, the way we behave and the way we support each other. We're hard-working, but above all else we're family; and it doesn't matter who you are, where you're from or what your favourite bake is, we’d love you to join us! We want everyone to feel welcome at Greggs and our colleagues to be able to be themselves at work, whatever their background, preferences, or views.
