Our people

Today, Sky employs 24,000 people across the UK, Ireland and beyond.

Now, more than ever, we need diverse perspectives to keep innovating. There isn’t a “Sky” type, so if you want to be yourself and love working with all kinds of people, you’ll feel right at home at Sky.

The thing we all have in common is a real passion for making life better for our customers and having fun along the way. You won’t find a more committed or enthusiastic team anywhere. It may sound clichéd, but we really are prepared to go the extra mile.

Doing the right thing

Right from the start you’ll see Sky behaves responsibly and contributes to the wider community. We believe it’s a better way to do business and fundamental to everything we do; from building sustainable television studios to inspiring young people through sport.

We expect everyone at Sky to do the right thing; be straightforward and honest, make fair and balanced decisions and think about how their actions impact the world outside. You can feel confident that integrity is not just a buzzword – and you are joining an organisation you can trust.

Delivering brilliantly

At Sky, we deliver brilliance every day. Doing what we say we will is how we have grown our business: keeping our promises to customers, meeting our targets or bringing new products to market in record time. We constantly push ourselves to be the best we can.

Of course, we can only do this with fantastic people who want to push themselves too. There’s no denying that life at Sky is full-on and you’ll find that expectations are high, but we’ll give you everything you need to shine.

Growing at Sky

When you join Sky, we hope it will be the start of a great career with us. We offer all the development opportunities that you would expect from a big company; courses, support for professional qualifications, a comprehensive resource library and mentoring.

No matter what your role is, you’ll find that much of your development will come from mastering the job itself; after all, nothing stays the same here for long. We’ll help you get the most from your job with regular and straightforward feedback, so you’ll always know how you’re doing and how to improve.

Plus, if you show what you can do and want to explore a different part of the business, we’ll support you every step of the way through project work, short-term placements or a whole new job. That way we all win.

You can definitely grow your career at Sky. I joined Sky on the Graduate Scheme and made it up to Finance Director over a number of years.
