Senior Test Consultant

Seriös Group are a boutique data analytics and testing consultancy based in heart of Newcastle upon Tyne but operating across the UK and with clients globally.

We’re boutique for two reasons. Firstly, size. We aim to maintain a size that will enable us to create a collaborative working environment amongst highly skilled consultants, allowing our graduates and juniors to learn from the best and not get lost in the crowd. Secondly, quality of delivery. We don’t mess around with our client deliverables. We’re procured to deliver quality solutions and as such we don’t plan to disappoint. All our deliverables are of the highest quality possible, and we are meticulous in our approach to achieve this. Ultimately, we aim to provide personalised and tailored solutions to our clients, providing the consultant time and attention required to ensure we deliver.

We provide technology solutions, and we manage the solution delivery end to end. Our consultants engage with our client teams but do not embed themselves into their teams. Our project deliveries can be fully managed by Seriös Group to the extent where we will develop and test in our infrastructure before deploying to our clients’ environments.

The technologies and project profiles we work with vary. We have projects delivering classic cloud data warehouse and analytics solutions in AWS, Azure and On-Premises. We also work in the IoT sensor space delivering analytics solutions designed to help our clients achieve carbon net zero and reduce their building maintenance and running costs.

Having formed in February 2020 we have built up a client portfolio in the big corporate space consisting of Technology, Financial Services, Real Estate, Facilities Management, Utilities, Manufacturing and Charitable organisations.

How do we work?

While recognising the market for large consultancies we have realised that the more personal, tailored solutions we offer are equally, if not more important to our clients. The Seriös approach is based around openness and honesty, we deliver by working closely with our clients in a partnership and involving them at every step of the project journey. This approach is replicated internally, we believe all our consultants should have a voice, with open communication encouraged to help ensure we’re continuously improving.
