Join the team that manages data and transforms it into actionable information across Sky. Creating new products. Exploring new markets. Innovating ways to communicate with our customers. You can even help predict what the future of our multi-billion-pound business looks like.  

Sky's opportunities for STEM graduates

Asha Kumaran, Recruitment Business Partner, introduces us to the various opportunities for STEM graduates at Sky and covers rotations abroad.

On our Data and Analytics Programme, you’ll spend two years taking on varied roles, rising to unique challenges and working on the kind of exciting projects you just don’t find anywhere else. All while discovering first-hand how we bring millions of people the entertainment they know and love.  

And the best thing is you don’t have to specialise too soon. Instead, you get to experience everything that makes data and analytics special at Sky before deciding on the area that’s right for you.  

What you’ll be doing

You’ll do four six-month rotations across some of our key departments:  

  • Data Tech and Analytics 
  • Group Product
  • Consumer Strategy

This gives you the opportunity to work across a range of teams:

  • Advanced Analytics are a team full of data scientists that use customer level, big / deep data sets from Sky. 
  • Commercial Analytics & Experimentation are the owners of Commercial Analytics data products at Sky. They provide recommendations through Data Science and work in close partnership with stakeholders.
  • Digital Decisioning run our Adobe Marketing Cloud stack to personalise decisions in websites, apps and third-party media.
  • Business Lead function that bridge the technical expertise of the analytics teams with business expertise across multiple functions.     
  • Group Product is where we develop, reliably execute and deliver world class products to the market that delight our internal and external customers. 
  • Econometrics run well established, holistic, statistical modelling to understand the key drivers of business KPIs.
  • Data Governance provide the best practice in the governance, quality control and ethical use of customer and prospect data.   

At the same time, you’ll get to work alongside lots of great people. Develop amazing data and analytical skills. Take your own ideas all the way through to testing. And help shape where our multibillion-pound business goes next.   

Programme facts

  • Programme duration is 2 years, rolling off into a permanent position
  • Expected start is September 2023. 

What we’re looking for

You're a graduate from any degree discipline, or soon will be. You’re likely to have studied maths, statistics, economics, physics or be able to demonstrate your understanding of the use of data through personal or university projects. We’re interested in your passion for data and the drive and ambition you can bring to the team.  

Other skills you may have include: 

  • Logical, end to end thinker
  • An enthusiastic problem-solver, with numerical, presentation and IT skills
  • Enjoy task-focused delivery, a fast pace environment and overcoming challenges 
  • Collaborative, great with people and keen on following recent trends in the market. 

Your application journey   

Step 1 – Submit your application on our system. We’ll be asking for your personal details, academic information and anything else that you think would be relevant such as work experience. Once your application has been submitted, you’ll be invited to complete our immersive digital assessments. This may land in your junk folder so don’t forget to check it. 

Step 2 – Complete our online digital assessments. These look at your Sky fit and your business fit. Why not pop onto our dedicated Prep hub to familiarise yourself with some of these digital assessments before completing them. You’ll also have the opportunity to practice each of these assessments beforehand, so please read our email instructions carefully. We’ve added some tips to help you along the way. 

Step 3 - For the final stage of your application, we’ll invite you to our virtual assessment centre and give you some tasks to get to know you better. The day will give you a practical insight into what it’s like to work as a technologist and will assess your technical aptitude. Once you’ve completed your assessment day, we’ll let you know when you can expect to hear back from us. 

Developing you

Enjoy an action-packed, learning experience with us as part of your graduate programme. We’ll help you grow into a great future leader, with the right tools and support. Our 2-year learning and development programme sits alongside your graduate programme and supports you during your programme and beyond.

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.

Our support doesn’t end there. You’ll join a cohort of grads on the same journey as yourself and we’ve also got an Emerging Talent community setup to support early talent in Sky. They host regular events and talks on topics important to young people starting their career journeys.

Why Inclusion is important  

It’s our people that make Sky Europe’s leading entertainment company. That’s why we work hard to be an inclusive employer, so everyone at Sky can be their best. CV’s aren’t everything. We’re more focused on who you are and the potential what you’ll bring to Sky.   

We celebrate diversity because different people, with different perspectives make Sky a better business. Our customers are incredibly diverse, so we should be, too.   

So why wait?    

Apply now to build an amazing career and be part of a brilliant team. We can’t wait to hear from you.    

The closing date for applications is 30th October 2022. Things move quickly around here, so applications may close early. Apply now to avoid disappointment. 

If you are successful in your application for this role, your appointment will be subject to receiving a positive outcome from your Criminal Record Check.
