Sky – Why Work For Us?

We Believe in Better.

It’s not just a slogan. Put simply, Believe in Better is our DNA. It’s how we approach everything; from creating game-changing entertainment and making our products effortless to use, to our constant focus on providing great service. We’re never satisfied and always want to do more – whether that’s for our millions of customers or the thousands of people who work for us.

Our success is built on talented people making bold decisions. The very idea of satellite TV was a massive gamble 25 years ago in the UK and since then our desire to provide customers with the best possible experience continues to set us apart from the rest.

We rely on our people to challenge the status quo, think big, think “better”. We’re always open to new ideas and nothing stays the same here for long. If you love change and the challenge and opportunity it brings, Sky is for you.

Now, more than ever, we need diverse perspectives to keep innovating. There isn’t a “Sky” type, so if you want to be yourself and love working with all kinds of people, you’ll feel right at home at Sky.

The thing we all have in common is a real passion for making life better for our customers and having fun along the way. You won’t find a more committed or enthusiastic team anywhere. It may sound clichéd, but we really are prepared to go the extra mile.
