Life as a Home Service Ambassador and LGBT+ Network Lead
‘Since the beginning, I’ve been included in my team.’
Why did you decide to become a Home Service Engineer at Sky?
I wanted to do a more hands-on job. I wanted to have a bit more control of my day. It was when I had a female engineer come around to install my Sky, that I was like; “Oh there’s an in. I can do it! I can apply.” So I did.
What have been your biggest achievements so far at Sky?
My biggest achievement is working as a Home Service Ambassador within Sky. Going out there and being with engineers and seeing people do the best jobs they can and also just the best of their abilities, supporting them as and when needed.
Also, I work as a lead with the LGBT+ network within Sky. What we do is empowering for everyone, allies alike, as well.
How have you been made to feel included and supported at Sky?
Since the beginning, I’ve been included in my team. I’ve never made to feel like an outsider, or anything like that.
I’ve never had any issues at Sky with being part of the LGBT+ network and the community. Sky is very accepting of everyone, and all of their employees are just the same.

It’s all there to support you, and there’s always somebody willing to talk.
