I work in an Agile scrum team carrying out both manual and automated testing on work the developers do.
I've worked on making a credit card contactless which was really interesting (the testing was fun too as i had to go out to shops and spend using the contactless functionality).
I studied English Lang/Lit and Double IT at 6 form and went to Nottingham Trent University to study Information Systems.
Its always been something I'm passionate about and i love problem solving. Its an area that has so many different routes to go down, both super technical and less so. Its also an area that's continuously developing which means you're always learning and keeping the mind working.
Don't write it off if you think you aren't technical enough. There are lots of different routes to look at and so many different skills to be used.
