Company Updates

  • For World Autism Awareness Week, Laura, who was told she was autistic at 18, shares how since joining us last summer, she's met many accepting and supportive colleagues who allow her to be herself at work. "In my application, I didn't disclose that I was autistic as I was worried about people's preconceptions. I considered asking for adjustments to the interview process, but found I didn't have to as the Software Engineering Academy assessment centre was inclusive and enjoyable. I was provided with a clear itinerary, was introduced to everyone, and given clear expectations for next steps. Every effort was made to reduce my anxiety about new locations, new people, and the interview itself without my having to ask - this gave me confidence that Sky was a place I could thrive. I'm lucky to work with people who accept me for who I am. They accept my different learning and communication styles, and include me in professional and social activities. I feel part of an open-minded culture based on respect and kindness which has helped me become more confident and develop my career".

  • #SkyNews 🌍 #SkySports ⚽ #SkyCreative 🎨 Beth has worked on them all. Our Vehicle Technology Manager, Beth, works across the business building innovative broadcast production solutions, making them mobile and using them on outside broadcast events. "Sky is a vibrant and innovative company that's willing to push the envelope and take risks - we're always pushing for the next great thing”. And Beth has helped this push, having supported #SkyNews in achieving a Guinness World Record for the highest number of live streams across multiple locations for the 2015 election, and working on the technology used in our Sky Q ‘mobile living rooms’ for #SkyRetail. “I have also been involved in several world firsts - we built the first satellite uplink truck fleet entirely based on a #Riedel system for Sky Germany. I also worked on creating the first folding mobile studio and a patented green screen augmented reality studio that could include a real-world window with no reflections for #SkySports." #LifeAtSky
