Congratulations Dan!

Congratulations to Dan!

We have had some great news this week (just what we all need right now).

KFA Test Analyst – Dan Hammond (shown here impersonating Robin Hood) has passed the ‘ISTQB Advanced Level Technical Test Analyst’ Exam.

Huge Congratulations to Dan from all the team.

The course is designed for those working in software testing who have reached an advanced point in their career and now makes him an ‘Advanced Level Test Analyst’.

This new qualification also means that Dan, who has been with KFA for over 7 years has even more skills up his sleeve with which to annoy developers and Business analysts with even more questions and queries!

Maybe if they don’t respond in a timely fashion he would point his bow and arrow at them!!

Well done Dan from all the team at KFA Connect!

We’re Celebrating Today!

Today is a day for celebrating at KFA.

As not one, but TWO of the support team are celebrating their 50th birthday today!

Steve & Darren were not only born on the same day but ended up sat next to each other in the support department – here at KFA.

That’s fate, that is!

Remember – If you haven’t grown up by the age of 50 – you don’t have to!!

Your turn next Richard….

We all wish you both a very happy birthday.

KFA Connect Young Team 2018 1024x658 - New Recruitment Initiative for IT Students launched by KFA

New Recruitment Initiative for IT Students launched by KFA

This week sees the launch of a completely new recruitment process for KFA Connect.

 

Wanting to attract the right person for the right role is really important to us, so we asked some of the younger members of the KFA team a simple question relating to our recruitment process…

What would they do differently to successfully recruit IT students?

The general consensus from the group seemed to be that instead of formal interviews, they thought that a chance to spend time with the actual team we are recruiting for – to ensure that the role and the individual applicant are in fact, a good fit is far more important.

Their view is that there are many dimensions within the world of IT as with other industries, so to get an early idea what will suit a personality or attitude, even their tolerance levels, could make a difference to long-term happiness and success of an individual.

KFA are keen to make sure that any new recruits are happy in their role and that the time we invest in training them is well spent. We do not want to place someone in a position that will not fulfil their ideal role.

We are sure there are thousands of people who wish that they had known first, the reality of the day to day duties required in what they thought was  their  dream job!

The first vacancy we have in 2019 is for a Trainee Level 3 Support role and this is the first vacancy we will look to fill by trialling this new recruitment process.

If you have a high-level of skill in problem-solving and a self-learning approach which can lead to identifying and writing fixes then our current vacancy could be for you.
