Test & Environment Manager

The University of Sussex is a leading academic institution nestled in the beautiful South Downs, on the outskirts of Brighton.

With staff and students from over 100 countries, we are a diverse and innovative environment, and one of the highest performing universities in the world. We are also a major local employer, with a revenue of over £320m per year and over 3,000 employees.

Led by an award-winning Chief Digital Transformation Officer and inspirational leadership team, we are now embarking on an ambitious programme of transformational change. Over the coming years, this digital transition will be an ever-developing programme supported by senior stakeholders both financially and strategically. Put simply, whilst we are already a highly successful organisation and business, the University will be a very different world in years to come and achieve levels of performance and digital delivery as yet unseen in the sector. All of this is underpinned by major construction and estate renewal, an exciting programme of work to add thousands of accommodation spaces, and a network replacement project to install the latest digital infrastructure as part of the journey towards a fully data-enabled organisation.

We are moving to an agile world and need to take the organisation on the same journey; to be sector leading and to deliver a model of digital delivery fit for the coming years. As this programme gains momentum, we need more people to join us as we unpick our challenges and legacy systems and move towards meeting our potential.

The Testing & Environments Manager will oversee the successful implementation of new and changed business and academic systems, by ensuring that they meet customer requirements, and tested to ensure they are functionally fit for purpose, and quality assured.

The Testing and environments Manager will have lead responsibility for the testing of all externally provided and in-house developed business and academic systems.

In addition to hands on testing activities, the Testing and Environments Manager will be responsible for developing the testing strategy, ensuring that testing is appropriately funded, planned, resourced, and that appropriate development and test environments are provided and maintained.  They will also responsible for the line management of staff within Testing and Environments team.

Not only do we offer flexible and remote working, a vibrant atmosphere, use of our incredible facilities, benefits, and an amazing pension; but we are offering the opportunity to be part of a transformation that will see us set the benchmark for a model of digital delivery in the HE sector.
