Sky

Work experience in Strategy

What channels should we launch next? What technologies should we be investing in? How much should we be charging our customers? How should we work with global tech giants?

In a fast-changing marketplace, there are some big questions that we need to answer to keep hold of our industry-leading position, and our Strategy team works closely with senior executives at Sky to do just that.  This involves analysing, offering advice and delivering projects across a range of topics, from developing a customer proposition, launching channels, investing in content, assessing growth opportunities and understanding whether new technologies can make a difference to our business.

If this sounds like the kind of sector or team you’d like to find out more about, then come and join us on our new work experience opportunity. This opportunity will give you the chance to work on a project that will exposes you to each of the three areas and develop a well-rounded understanding of what it’s like to work in Strategy at Sky.

There are three key parts to Strategy at Sky: Strategic Planning Group, Business Development & Strategic Partnerships and Planning & Strategy Implementation. 

Strategic Planning Group (SPG)

Responsible for assessing opportunities and developing plans to support strategic level decision-making. This includes consumer research, competitor monitoring, financial modelling, stakeholder engagement, establishment of key performance indicators and creation of materials for Board meetings.

Business Development & Strategic Partnerships

Planning & Strategy Implementation (PSI)

Responsible for shaping and managing the delivery of major strategic programmes that have significant importance for Sky. This might be launching new, market-leading products or channels, designing operating models, shaping up new propositions or running strategic reviews.
