Collaborating with leading software developers, tech analysts and technology experts. Working on a product that changes how millions of people watch their favourite shows. There’s only one place where you’ll see action like this in your career – and that’s Sky.

Join our Technology Programme and you’ll spend two years taking on varied roles, rising to unique challenges and working on the kind of exciting projects you just don’t find anywhere else. Collaborate with our technology teams across the globe on video streaming platforms. All while discovering first-hand how we bring millions of people the entertainment they know and love. 

And the best thing is you don’t have to specialise too soon. From business analyst to pure technical mastery, this programme lets you taste it all before deciding on the career path that suits you best.

What you’ll be doing

This programme gives you exposure to several different areas of our business where you’ll be a part of one our core technology teams, who include:

  • Data Tech and Analytics, the team putting data right at the heart of our strategy and shapes decisions on everything from the products we launch to the content we show.
  • Information Systems, our software engineering focused Customer Management team who provide innovative tech solutions for Sky’s millions of customers.
  • Service Operations, the team who ensure our Tech solutions continue to deliver for our customers every hour of the day and every day of the year.

Over the course of two years, you could rotate into any of the following roles:

  • Data Analyst
  • Technical Analyst
  • Business Analyst
  • Software Engineer / Developer
  • Incident Manager / Change Manager.

From the start, you’ll get going with complex and challenging projects. You’ll have opportunities to work alongside great and talented people. Plus, you’ll get lots of freedom to try out new ideas and shape where our multibillion-pound business goes next. And by the end of the scheme, you’ll have developed all the core skills you need to take on your first permanent role.

Programme facts

  • This role is based in Livingston
  • Programme duration is 2 years, rolling off into a permanent position
  • Expected start is September 2021.

Your development journey

You’ll enjoy a brand new, action-packed, learning experience with us. We’ll help you grow into a great future leader, with the right tools and support. The 2-year programme supports you with:

  • Growth - Every project and role you take on will be a chance to learn and grow. And you’ll be supported by passionate colleagues along the way. 
  • Confidence - Whatever your background, you can make a valuable and valued contribution. You’ll build confidence by getting involved and stepping outside of comfort zone. 
  • Belonging - You’re trusted to own your day, but there’s always someone on hand to make sure you succeed. With fellow grads, inspiring each other to think big and take action. Or with your manager and wider Sky team to help build your own unique career.

Plus, you’ll have access to a range of tools, from workshops to digital courses (like LinkedIn Learning), which will help you along the way. 

It’s a journey and we want you to see your progress, so you’ll get your very own development report to track your success

  • We’re interested in your passion for technology and the drive and ambition you can bring to the team.
