Whizz with numbers? Join our finance team and be right at the heart of all the action. Dive right into exciting projects and learn on the job while studying for your CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants) qualification.

Find out first-hand what it’s like to be an Accountant for a leading entertainment brand. Commercial Finance influences key business decisions. Support new product launches. Advise on whether we should invest in a new TV show or a game-changing piece of technology. Manage company-wide budgets and gain experience in our Corporate Finance team. And enjoy a collaborative, caring culture that helps us achieve brilliant things. There’s only one place you’ll see action like this in your career – and that’s Sky.

A job you love to talk about

There’s plenty to talk about when working at Sky. Bumping into TV presenters. A different lunch menu every day. The content. The products. Time out to focus on career development. Only at Sky. See for yourself.

What you’ll be doing

You’ll go on three, year-long placements, spanning the entire business. From content and channels, to product development and technology, sales, and strategy. Plus, you’ll be financially supported to study for your CIMA qualification while gaining relevant experience – meaning that you’ll be able to join the world’s largest and leading professional body of Management Accountants.

Through your business rotations, you’ll learn how to set budgets and track against them, develop business cases to support projects and investment decisions, analyse data to provide key insight, and collaborate with teams across the business to meet and exceed our business targets.

You’ll have our full support to study for your CIMA qualification.

Your development journey

You’ll enjoy a brand new, action-packed, learning experience with us. We’ll help you grow into a great future leader, with the right tools and support. The 2-year programme supports you with:

Growth - Every project and role you take on will be a chance to learn and grow. And you’ll be supported by passionate colleagues along the way.

Confidence - Whatever your background, you can make a valuable and valued contribution. You’ll build confidence by getting involved and stepping outside of comfort zone.

Belonging - You’re trusted to own your day, but there’s always someone on hand to make sure you succeed. With fellow grads, inspiring each other to think big and take action. Or with your manager and wider Sky team to help build your own unique career.

Plus, you’ll have access to a range of tools, from workshops to digital courses (like LinkedIn Learning), which will help you along the way.

It’s a journey and we want you to see your progress, so you’ll get your very own development report to track your success.

What we’re looking for

The one essential requirement is that you're a graduate, or soon will be. It doesn’t matter what your STEM degree is in. We’re much more interested in your passion for numbers and the drive and ambition you can bring to the team.

Other skills we’re looking for include:

  • Commercially minded and a problem-solver
  • Collaborative and great with people
  • A self-starter, eager to drive change in an exciting and dynamic environment.
