Sky Careers

Name: Suhaib Bari

Job title: Sales Advisor

What area of Sky do you work in and what do you do on a daily basis? I work at our Osterley Contact Centre as a Sales Advisor; we help our customers by tailoring a package to suit their needs. Over the past year, I’ve also been involved in managing and supporting the team to achieve great results.  

How did you get into your role? I was able to get more involved in the management side of things through the Future Leader opportunity, which enables you to gain management experience.

How have you made a difference in your role / what’s been your proudest moment working here? Nothing makes me more proud than seeing those that I coach progress.

What’s the most enjoyable thing about your job? It’s got to be the people that I work with, but I also love that I’m able to make a difference in my role.

Describe your contact centre or area of the business - what makes it a great place to work? The Contact Centre is a dynamic workplace with different activities happening almost every day; whether it’s competitions between teams or roadshows promoting our latest products and service, there’s always something exciting going on.

Have you had the opportunity to progress in your role? What advice would you give to others trying to develop their career? I’ve been trusted with more responsibility and have been able to impact the wider business. My advice would be to take the initiative for your personal development.

An interesting fact no one else knows about you: I love to travel and have been to 35 countries. My goal is to travel to at least 100.
