As a Sova team member, your part of a close-knit group, transforming the world of talent assessment. We recognise that the sum of the team is greater than its parts, so we want people who work well as part of a team and who see shared goals as more important that their own. We’re serious about work/life balance. Our team works hard, and we know everyone needs room for family, friends, and other interests. At Sova, you’ll encounter a nurturing culture that promotes professional and personal growth.


We believe in our values, and you can expect us to drive these through our work and commitment to you: 

Making Science Work - We make science work in the real world, by combining our core psychological expertise with the creative use of digital technology, challenging existing thinking to reimagine what can be achieved. Our measure of success is simple – have we made the greatest measurable impact we can in order to help our clients.

Different, Together - We work to create something none of us could manage alone. It works because we are committed to a shared goal, value teamwork, recognise each other’s strengths, and always communicate openly, honestly, and respectfully.

Restless Spirits - We are endlessly curious – about our science, our clients, and our industry. By questioning assumptions, embracing new experiences, and travelling beyond our comfort zone, we are able to respond with speed and agility to a constantly changing world.

Ever Upwards - We love achieving what we set out to achieve, as individuals, as teams and as a business. We care about working profitably and sustainably. We always look to go one better and never do anything by halves.
