1. Diversity is at the heart of what they do
There’s no doubt, a diverse workplace is a happier workplace. Not only do you get to bounce ideas off unique people from all walks of life, but it’s vitally important to work in a place where you feel welcomed. And, no matter what your background is, Sky does just that.
Sky’s CEO Dana Strong recently spoke up about her passion for ensuring an inclusive environment:
“Creating an environment and a culture where multiple, different voices, multiple, different contexts, multiple, different, diverse backgrounds can be heard is one of my main jobs as a leader.”
In fact, the company has set a target of making sure that 20 percent of its U.K and Ireland staff is from Black and ethnic minorities by 2025.
So, if you’re looking for a diverse, supportive environment where your voice will be heard, you’ll be in great hands working at Sky.
2. Plans for expansion
Whether you’re looking to grow your career or simply trying something new, it’s always valuable to join an expanding company. This is because as new roles open, you’ll be given the chance to progress and take on more responsibility if you choose to. Plus, there’s always a chance to explore a different team within the company if you’d like to!
What will Sky look like in five years? “I expect to be across all of continental Europe with the Sky brand,” also thanks to a recent joint venture with ViacomCBS, “we will have really established ourselves as a powerhouse of content creation,” states Dana.
Leon Olisa began his career in Sales at Sky and progressed up to Head of Service Operations at Sky Connect. He talks about the expansion, excellent training and opportunities to develop:
“There are also huge opportunities for career progression here. Operationally, this time next year my team’s headcount will have doubled. Alongside secondments and development positions, working at Sky Connect means that your career can grow and develop exponentially.”
