Sky – Why Work For Us?


We Believe in Better.

It’s not just a slogan. Put simply, Believe in Better is our DNA. It’s how we approach everything; from creating game-changing entertainment and making our products effortless to use, to our constant focus on providing great service. We’re never satisfied and always want to do more – whether that’s for our millions of customers or the thousands of people who work for us.


Our success is built on talented people making bold decisions. The very idea of satellite TV was a massive gamble 25 years ago in the UK and since then our desire to provide customers with the best possible experience continues to set us apart from the rest.

We rely on our people to challenge the status quo, think big, think “better”. We’re always open to new ideas and nothing stays the same here for long. If you love change and the challenge and opportunity it brings, Sky is for you.

Today, Sky employs 25,000 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.

Women in leadership

We believe that having a gender balanced leadership team makes us a better business. We reflect who our customers are, draw on different and varied experiences, have diverse ideas and opinions. Today a third of our senior leaders are women.  Our aim is to move that to a half.

To ensure we reach a 50/50 split, we’re doing three things.  Firstly, we’re levelling the playing field, for example through 50/50 shortlists for all senior positions.  Secondly, we’re supercharging the great women already working for us through our Women in Leadership Sponsorship and Development programme; and, thirdly we’re attracting the best talent to work for us, for example through targeted marketing. We always want the best person for the role, and this initiative will help more talented women to succeed.

Employee Networks

Employee networks help us and our people to succeed by connecting communities and empowering everyone to be themselves. As a result we encourage our networks to support and inspire their members and continue to make Sky a great place to work.

Two of our networks include:

Parents@Sky - a network for working parents, developed and run by working parents. Over 1400 employees are now members which gives them access to the online forum, website, webinars and workshops.#

LGBT – provides professional and social networking opportunities for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees. Each year the network participates in Pride events across the country, engaging both our employees and customers with our commitment to diversity.

    I have been working at Sky full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits; healthcare, free TV, discounted broadband & phone, and many more.

    Cons

    Not too much but some pressure from management, something that you should expect in most companies.
