RDT Ltd employees enjoy their staff summer social event

RDT’s staff were rewarded for all their hard work with a fun-filled day out in the sun at a local outdoor venue.

A host of activities were laid on including, clay pigeon shooting, quad bikes on an obstacle courses and Apache rally cars for those who wanted to go a bit faster. There were also more gentle activities including tractor rides, feeding farm animals and paddling in the lake.

A BBQ was provided and the evening ended with a “duck race” across the lake and a few games of tug of war.

Employee Spotlight – Lead QA Engineer Nicky Pooley


Lead QA Engineer Nicky Pooley is in our Employee Spotlight this month

Hi, I’m Nicky Pooley and I am a Lead QA Engineer at RDT.

I didn’t choose testing as a career – I fell into it at a previous company when there was an opportunity to test a new system and a manager there recognised some potential.  She realised that I had a knack for it, that it was something that I did well, and so she got me the training I needed to change my career.  I’ve never really looked back.

I came to RDT because I wanted more challenge than my previous role offered.  I stay because of what I gain by working here.  I am constantly learning new things, I have learnt more in the past three years than I had the previous ten!  The office is close to home so I have a great work-life balance which is important to me.  RDT make sure that salaries keep up with the market so all boxes are ticked.  (more…)
