Bet365 and Hillside Technology have announced the launch of the bet365 Software Testing Academy. Recruiters will initially work from the Stoke offices and focus on core skills rather than expanding bet365’s reach into non-traditional and traditional job markets.
bet365 aims to inspire both those who are already thinking about a career in technology and those who have not previously thought about it, but have the skills to succeed in the technology sector. The operator will include five core competencies that are considered important in software testing. These include communication skills, attention to detail, prioritization, knowledge retention, and analytical skills.
Successful candidates begin by participating in a training program supervised by a test group mentor. The training combines theory with practical exercises on real technical projects, providing both the fundamentals of software testing and an overview of key areas such as functional and regression testing.
Trainees will be assigned to a test group to continue their education. Students will work in groups and independently in several work streams to further develop and improve their skills by becoming familiar with various testing methods and products. Internal and external training will be conducted based on the ISTQB Certified Tester Foundation Level.
Kamal Kaaba, CEO of Hillside Technology Ltd, said: «If you’re interested in technology, struggling to break into the industry, or looking for work that utilizes your analytical, organizational and communication skills, this is a fantastic opportunity to kick start your career.
By focusing on the desired core competencies of a Tester, as opposed to recent or previous career experience, we hope to create a recruitment programme that offers those possessing the right skills an opportunity to apply for a role that otherwise they might have thought unachievable or not considered.»
