ROQ has recently welcomed its 2017 graduate intake, as part of the company’s ongoing commitment to identifying and nurturing the next generation of software testing professionals.
The annual programme has helped dozens of young people into their first paid role after completing their university studies. ROQ’s Graduate Programme not only provides permanent employment, but also an intensive induction phase and ongoing career support, to ensure that the candidates are up to speed with what’s required of them, and to help them settle into their new working environment.
This initiative focuses on attracting individuals with the passion to carve out a successful career in software testing. In return, ROQ offers secure, permanent employment working with the UK’s premier software testing solutions provider, and the training and support needed to thrive in this fast-paced sector.
ROQ has worked hard to forge strong links with key universities across the north west since its inception in 2009, and has developed a reputation as an employer of choice; Graduates who join ROQ are a key part of the service delivery team from day one, working with a range of different clients and using many different tools and technologies on a daily basis.
This year, more than 200 students from a wide range of undergraduate courses applied for ROQ’s Graduate Programme, and took part in an interactive recruitment process, where their skills, aptitude and attitude were put to the test. The successful candidates demonstrated strong technical and interpersonal skills, determination and the ability to be flexible and work as part of a team – all essential requirements for a successful software tester.
Sarah Barlow, ROQ’s Head of Talent, said: “The graduates who join us are vital to ROQ’s ongoing growth plans and its overall success. From experience, we know they bring a wealth of knowledge, experience, positivity and the determination to excel in their first role after leaving university.
“In return, we offer a great working environment, the chance to support some of the world’s leading companies, training across many different software testing disciplines, and the chance to have fun whilst working hard.”
