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.

  • 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

  • These roles are based in Livingston, Scotland
  • Programme duration is 2 years, rolling off into a permanent position
  • Expected start is August 2022.
  • What we’re looking for

  • You’re a graduate from any degree discipline, or soon will be. 
  • We’re interested in your passion for technology and the drive and ambition you can bring to the team.
  • You enjoy staying up to date with the latest technology developments and may even work on projects in your spare time.
  • Your application journey

    First, complete our short application form by entering your details and academic information. Once your application has been submitted, you will be invited (so look out for our email, you may need to check your junk mail just in case) to our immersive digital assessments. Your programme requires two digital assessments to be completed prior to shortlisting to the assessment centre.

    The first digital assessment looks at your behavioural and cognitive strengths through several questions. In the second (and last) digital assessment, you will be required to review various sets of information and be asked questions related to this. Part of this stage will include a recorded video interview. But don’t worry there will be practice round.

    For the final stage of your application, we’ll invite you to a digital assessment centre. The day will give you a practical insight into the role, test your aptitude and help us get to you know you better.

    Once you’ve completed your assessment day, we’ll let you know when you can expect to hear back from us.

    Your development journey

    You’ll enjoy a brand new, action-packed, learning experience with us as part of your graduate programme. We’ll help you grow into a great future leader, with the right tools and support. Our 2-year learning and development programme sits alongside your graduate programme and supports you during your programme and beyond 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.
