Meet our people
Achieving a better gender and ethnic balance is important to us, so we’re investing in programmes to help us get there. We focus our marketing to increase our talent pool and always hire the best person for the role.
Here are a few examples of our programmes:
Fancy ‘Springing’ into tech’ with an insight week with the team that built the likes of Sky.com, Sky News, NOW TV and Sky Q?
We celebrate diversity because different people, with different perspectives make Sky a better business. Our customers are incredibly diverse, so we should be, too. That’s why we’re working hard to build an inclusive culture and offering this insight week to females only.
MAMA Youth Project
We work with MAMA Youth Project to offer TV and media training for 18-25 year olds from under-represented groups. It gives young people the opportunity to build skills for a career in the media industry; by producing the show What’s up TV For Sky One.
Women in Leadership
We offer sponsorship and training for the next generation of female leaders. Our aim is for half our leaders to be women, and today we’re at 39%. We support this by making sure all vacancy shortlists have a 50/50 gender balance.
Women in Technology & Engineering
We support women to consider a career move through paid skills training, enabling them to apply for a role they may not have considered before.
