While there are existing performance test assets in place, they have not been used for nearly 12 months.

While the initial phase is not a hands on to start with, the delivery phase will require hands on technical skills to develop performance testing assets, completion of technical documentation and analysis and review of performance results.

The Lead will be fully accountable for the delivery of the Non Functional Testing ensuring that technical deliverables are achieved and that team resources are managed effectively.
