What application advice would current strategy graduate Andrew give?
"Sky is a great place to work in terms of perks"
What attracted you to Sky in the first place?
I wanted to work somewhere that I could have an impact on products/services I actually used in my life. Sky is also a great place to work in terms of perks and work life balance.
What are you working on? What have been the highlights that you have worked on?
During my year in SPG, I worked on projects across a wide range of areas at Sky –Sports, Broadband, Sales & marketing. I think the most interesting project was looking at how we can better serve the needs of older customers. I currently work within the Startupsteam in BDSP. We try to help Sky innovate by building relationships within the startupsspace. I also help manage Sky’s relationship with Tech Giants such as Facebook and Twitter.
What are the opportunities and challenges of being on the Sky strategy graduate programme?
I think the greatest opportunity is the freedom the graduate programme gives you to take up as much responsibly as you can handle. You get a range of learning opportunities at organised sessions to work on a variety of skills. There are also more specific opportunities available through your team and an online leaning portal. A challenge of working at Sky is to adjust the fast paced environment.
How would you describe the culture and people at Sky in 3 words?
Fun, fast-paced, challenging
What advice can you give to future applicants?
Make sure you’ve researched Sky and can show a real passion for what we do.
