We touch billions of people's lives - but most of them never realise it.
You may not have heard of us, but each time you catch a flight, eat a sandwich, fill up your car – or perform other everyday tasks – you rely on materials, products or systems that we have tested, certified or advised upon.
That's one reason working here is exciting. You'll play a part in making things safer, more efficient — or just better. You'll help customers find new ways of doing things or test materials that might be years away from the market.
And while you do it, you'll be working with the best. Our technical teams are world-renowned, so there'll never be a day when you don't learn something new.

We hate to see talent pass us by. If you can't see a job that's right for you, let us take a look at your CV.
Senior Chemist/Metals Group Leader, Santa Fe Springs, USA
“I have been lucky to have helped bring drugs or medical devices to market that are life-saving or life-enhancing. When I speak to my customers and hear the impact that their developments make, it is so humbling to play a part. Indeed, it is a reminder of the important work and positive impact that Exova plays every day.”
Senior Metallurgist, Edinburgh, UK
“From my personal experience, Exova is full of opportunities and your skills and achievements never go unnoticed. Building this experience takes time and there are no shortcuts, but a mentor can help you bridge that gap and Exova encourages you to learn from their experience.”
Corrosion Engineer, Exova Corrosion Centre, Dudley, UK
“The variation in projects and customers is interesting and gives me an opportunity to develop my skills and knowledge. One day I could be working on a Shell project, the next for Maersk and then Subsea 7. I also work with some of the very best people in the industry.”
Senior Microbiologist, Camberley Water, UK
“I come from a technical background, and this is a major part of my current role. However, as my career has progressed with the company, I have found that I really enjoy general management. Performing management in a technical environment is ideal for me, and is something that working for Exova is allowing me to do.”
Muhammad Sabir Hussain
Senior Regional Microbiologist, Dubai/Qatar
“Exova’s Technical Career Development Programme is providing great opportunities for myself and other technical colleagues to be recognised and to achieve their career objectives, with the full support of the company.”
Project Manager and Business Development, Santa Fe Springs, USA
“Exova is always growing and technology is always changing, so it allows me to develop my career at the forefront of the industry – exactly where I want to be.”
Dr Basab Bhattacharya
Technical Manager, Singapore
“I've contributed to some major projects during my time with Exova: Brunei Shell’s offshore pipeline project; Shell’s Gumusut project; APLNG and QCLNG landline project in Queensland, Australia; and the SapuraAcergy – Lando project in Vietnam.”
Business Unit Head - Reaction to Fire - Warrington, UK
“I joined Exova Warringtonfire as a Technical Assistant in 2004. Having gained valuable 'on-the-job' experience, I was promoted on five occasions to the position of Business Unit Head. I'm proof that if you are willing to work hard and apply yourself, Exova offers the support and opportunity to further your career.”
Americas Inside Sales and Marketing Manager - Mississauga, Canada
“I started off working in Exova in the lab and then progressed my way into account management and now on into sales, so I've really been given a chance to grow and develop and learn within my own position, which is really great.”
Senior Metallurgist, Muscat, Oman
“Due to Exova’s diversity, global footprint and network of labs, it provides plenty of opportunities for skills and career development. I started working with Exova in Abu Dhabi before taking up a new role in the Aberdeen lab. From there, I progressed again to my current position here in Oman.”
