Join our breakfast on 27 June in association with IHR | Early Careers: Assessing Skills to find potential at pace

Tailored Assessments that Uncover Emerging Talent

No more endless screening of CVs and forms. Evaluate graduates and apprentices based on their skills and potential, with an early careers assessment that's accurate and bias-free. 

Early Careers - LP Header

Hire for skills and potential. Not words 

CVs and forms only show what candidates want you to see. Our early careers assessment goes deeper, evaluating skills and behaviours that predict current and future success, resulting in more accurate hiring.

Early Careers - Skills Hiring

Screen thousands of candidates within minutes 

As candidates complete their assessments, our scoring algorithm automatically ranks them against your criteria, screening out low performers and helping you prioritise the best.

Early Careers - Candidate Screening

Beat the competition to hire top graduates

Competition for top graduates is fierce. Stand out from your competitors by offering a hiring experience that candidates love, focused on their skills and potential, rather than long and boring forms.


Support diversity goals by fairly assessing talent

CVs and forms are subjective, leading to unconscious bias during the hiring process. Our assessments are independent of age, gender, ethnicity, or educational background, so each candidate gets a fair chance.


Go live within days, not months

Success Stories

This has been a hearts and mind project. There was a lot of myth busting to be done. A change in behaviour and mindset was required, and while we wanted to ensure we are measuring quality, we didn’t want to put any barriers up. We needed to take the focus from quantity, to bringing in people who stay and progress

Throughout the project, the Sova project team have been professional, efficient and responsive. They applied their collective psychometric and digital expertise to understand what we needed and shape the right solution to meet our objectives. Personable and fun to work with, we are excited to have Sova as our assessment partner of the future.

It’s critical that we make the right hiring decisions, particularly as the Global Strategy Team is such an important part of our talent pipeline. In selecting Sova Assessment, we’ve found a partner who understood our business needs and built a solution which feels very much part of LexisNexis.

Initially we viewed the introduction of virtual assessment centres as a solution to continue with vital recruitment during the nationwide lockdown. After running several centres, we realised the benefits of these centres were far greater. Administrative costs have been dramatically reduced and travel costs for assessors and candidates completely removed.

What assessments are available?

We can create custom assessments to measure your talent framework. Our OTS assessment library includes personality, ability and motivation assessments that can be further customised to your needs and context. We also have a range of reports from a single completion of the questionnaires providing a different lens on talent to support assessment across the whole talent lifecycle.

What’s different about Sova’s student recruitment solutions?

Students and graduates expect a fair, engaging and relevant hiring process. Sova provides a range of assessments through our talent acquisition software that can be added to your assessment process as off-the-shelf modules or created specifically for roles in your organisation. By combining a realistic job preview using varied media, with blended whole-person assessments, you can ensure your student recruitment process will be interesting, and developmental, accurate and fair. 

Is Sova’s talent acquisition platform suitable for international graduate recruitment?

Yes, absolutely and we work with many well-known large organisations that run international student recruitment programmes. Features such as our virtual assessment centres, video interview software and immersive homepages enable international collaborations for candidates and hiring managers. 

What are the advantages of remote talent acquisition software for student recruitment?

A virtual approach to student recruitment enables organisations to attract and engage with a bigger and more diverse pool of emerging talent. By removing geographical boundaries and the need to travel, the process becomes more inclusive. Organisations also save on the time and cost of on-campus student recruitment services. Reducing paperwork and travel is also beneficial for an organisation’s carbon footprint.
