What does James love about working with us?
"Sky appealed to me in particular as it seemed to have a supportive and welcoming culture."
What attracted you to the Sky graduate programme?
Sky appealed to me in particular as it seemed to have a supportive and welcoming culture, with an emphasis on doing business responsibly. This combined with the fact that Sky is at the forefront of some exciting industries made it an attractive place to start my career.
What does your typical day look like?
Every day is slightly different. I do a lot of work in Microsoft Excel and other data analysis programmes, but other days I am doing research, making slide packs or going to meetings to talk about TV.
How does Sky encourage a good work life balance?
I take the free shuttle bus back and forth to the campus from Ealing which makes the commute fast and leaves more time for me to do things outside of work in the evening. It is easy enough to keep regular hours if you are on top of your work, and leaving your desk to eat lunch or go to the gym is encouraged!
How would you describe the culture and people at Sky in a few words?
Friendly, passionate, open, collaborative
What advice can you give to future applicants?
Do as much research as you can on Sky, their competitors and the markets they operate in. Don’t be afraid to offer your own ideas (but make sure you back them up!). And the classic – be yourself!
