About this programme

Get involved in every aspect of Commercial Strategy and Planning. Identify new market opportunities and the latest products. Define our quarterly and annual commercial plans. Manage sales and retention. This internship will help you understand the marketplace, and our position in it. 

Where better begins - Early Careers
The spark of a better idea starts at Sky.

You could take on an internship in:

  • Propositional Development: decide which new products and services we should launch with the help of a clear strategy, as well as customer insights. 
  • Media Planning: work with creative agencies to decide how we should spend our budget.
  • Trading Performance: improve sales and customer retention by fine-tuning our pricing and promotion strategies, as well as the channels we use. 

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 on our Business Strategy programme once you graduate – starting September 2025.
