As a leading Kiwi-owned delivery consultancy, Assurity is committed to supporting a diverse and inclusive workspace. By partnering our FreshStart programme with the Return to IT pilot, we can help women join the digital workforce and support them to flourish in their careers.

Louise Morgan, our 2017 FreshStarter, said “I was ready for a career change and, after joining the Assurity FreshStart Programme over six months ago, I just love the opportunities available for constant learning. Thanks to the initial four-week training period, I learnt the fundamentals of how to be a great Consultant and really felt ready for my first client assignment”.

About us

Assurity is on a mission to improve software delivery in New Zealand by implementing innovative techniques that help our clients deliver in new and better ways – including how they approach software testing. In our world, quality starts before a project even gets going and this means making sure testing is considered properly, right up front. We’re looking for talent that we can train to deliver better software testing. This could be you.

Life at Assurity

We recognise that people from a range of backgrounds can add real value through their life experiences and the challenges they’ve overcome. Our FreshStart Programme is designed to teach those with an interest in software quality everything they need to know to grow a career in testing.

We’re looking for individuals who…

  • Are committed to making a change for the better
  • Have researched testing as a career
  • Have thought about why they’re motivated to join this field
  • Have the passion, energy and enthusiasm to learn
  • Have some exposure of working in the corporate world (you’re likely to have a greater understanding of how business works and that will help you get up to speed with our clients)
  • Affiliate with our core values. Our family culture is really important to us so we look for individuals who we strongly believe will contribute to that culture

How does FreshStart work?

Each year, we run FreshStart as a four-week Programme to teach you everything you need to know about software testing. You need to come armed with a learning mindset… and then leave the rest to us. FreshStart touches on a range of approaches, techniques and methodologies that will help you develop a ‘tester mindset’ so you can look at software in a new light.

What happens afterwards?

After the Programme, you’ll start your new career as a Tester working on challenging client projects.

What’s in it for you?

  • An outstanding training programme (and you’re paid while doing it)
  • A chance to move in a new career direction
  • A career in a growing discipline with good future prospects
  • Work with an amazing team of people full of knowledge, skills and passion
  • Full support and career development

For this year’s intake for the FreshStart programme we are partnering with the Return to IT programme in order to get passionate women who have had some experience in technology the opportunity to reskill into software testing. Apply below!
