What you’ll be doing

You will have the opportunity to work in teams that play a critical part in developing and maintaining technology used by millions of customers, as well as the systems used here at Sky.

As a product owner you’ll be the interface between the stakeholders and development team and be responsible for the vision of the product. You’ll be involved in developing product backlog, prioritising requirements and ensuring the development team works towards meeting the requirements.

As a technical analyst you’ll be responsible for developing tasks for the developer to build based on the requirements of the backlog. You’ll provide guidance on how a requirement will impact a project or the systems the projects depend on.

Nothing happens on-screen without the talented people behind the scenes, working their magic every day at Sky. Join us for an internship and you’ll be working in a fun, fast-moving environment. Impress us, and we may well offer you a full-time position once you graduate – starting summer 2022.

How you’ll be supported

Be Brilliant - How? We give you freedom. Support. The chance to try things your way – forging your ideal career path, or developing something totally new. It means you can do more. Make an impact. Get noticed. And it means with the right attitude, anything’s possible.

Digital Development - Whenever you want it. Access 3,000 LinkedIn Learning courses at a time that suits you. We’ll suggest courses that we think are key, then it’s over to you.

Support Network - Whatever path you choose we’ll be right there with you. You’ll get to team up with a grad who’s been there and done it and have a manager who’ll stretch and guide you to where you want to go.

What we’re looking for

You’re currently studying for an undergraduate degree in any STEM subject, and in your penultimate year of study. You’ll be passionate about technology and enjoy keeping up to date with the latest technology developments.

Your application journey

First, complete our short application form by entering your details and academic information. Once your application has been submitted, you will be invited (so look out for our email, you may need to check your junk mail just in case) to our immersive digital assessments. Your programme requires two digital assessments to be completed prior to shortlisting to the assessment centre.

The first digital assessment looks at your behavioural and cognitive strengths through several questions. In the second digital assessment you will be required to review various sets of information and be asked questions related to this. Part of this stage will include a recorded video interview. But don’t worry there will be practice round.

For the final stage of your application, we’ll invite you to a digital assessment centre. The day will give you a practical insight into the role, test your aptitude and help us get to you know you better.

Once you’ve completed your assessment day, we’ll let you know when you can expect to hear back from us.
