Sky to create 1,000 jobs to meet growing customer demand – Sky News

Sky, the owner of Sky News, has announced the creation of 1,000 new jobs.

The media and entertainment firm said the move would support “growing customer demand” and raise its workforce by almost 5% to 25,000 across the UK and Ireland.

Sky, which was bought by US entertainment giant Comcast last year, said it was hiring 500 new customer service representatives to be based at its new contact centre in Leeds.

Comcast said its bid came with a series of legally binding commitments on Sky ownership and UK investment

The announcement builds on Sky’s commitment to Leeds, where it already employs more than 1,000 staff – mostly working on its digital and technical capability.

Last month, Sky also announced the creation of a new Sky Studios Innovation Hub there.

The company will also hire 500 new engineers to accelerate the roll-out of its Sky Q TV platform.

Sky, which already employs 3,500 engineers across the UK, said it was recruiting the new permanent engineer positions nationwide.

Its chief executive for the UK and Ireland, Stephen van Rooyen said: “It’s great that 500 new Sky engineers will be hitting the roads right across the UK this winter to meet growing customer demand.

“Together with our expanded team in Leeds, these 1,000 new employees are a real testament to Sky’s commitment to customer service and investment to create a diverse workforce right across the UK.”
