About Sky

Together we work hard to give our customers a better entertainment and communications experience and are always looking for ways to improve in everything we do. That’s why our people are critical to our success. Our unique environment helps everyone to do their best work, fulfill their potential and achieve great things together.

We are a team of around 20 people, ranging from Analyst (graduate) to Head of Strategy. We report into our Director of Strategy, Nick Herm and ultimately to our UK & ROI CEO, Stephen Van Rooyen. Backgrounds in the team vary from consulting, to finance, to operational. We’re also a mix of people who have moved internally from other areas of Sky, to people who have joined Sky from other businesses.

Our Team Culture

The team is full of ambitious people who aren’t afraid to work hard when required. That said, we work on an output not an input basis and we take a sustainable work-life balance extremely seriously. Flexible working, be it needing to work from home, or needing to take some time out of the day to run errands or get in your workout at the brilliant new Sky gym is encouraged to make sure you can meet life as well as work commitments.

We take development really seriously here at Sky and support individuals in achieving their goals. Being a small-ish team, there are plenty of opportunities for development and promotion within strategy but we’re also a pipeline of talent across the business.

Our Office

We’re campus based in Osterley, easily accessible on foot from Syon Lane station (on the mainline from Waterloo) or various tube stations (Osterley, Gunnersbury, Ealing) with a free shuttle bus to and from the office. Being predominantly focused on UK strategy, very little travel is involved but occasionally projects may involve a trip to one of our Dublin, Munich or Milan offices.
