Our Finance team is rooted at the core of what we do, meaning you’ll get hands-on experience of being an Accountant in business. You’ll gain experience in producing the financial and operational reporting that will enable us to continue growing every year and, in addition, you’ll complete analysis and partner the business supporting our customer service function.

What we’re looking for

The one essential requirement is that you’re a graduate, or soon will be. It doesn’t matter what your degree is in. We’re much more interested in your passion for numbers and the drive and ambition you can bring to the team.

Your development journey

You’ll enjoy a brand new, action-packed, learning experience with us. We’ll help you grow into a great future leader, with the right tools and support. The 2-year learning and development programme supports you with:

Growth – Every project and role you take on will be a chance to learn and grow. And you’ll be supported by passionate colleagues along the way.

Confidence – Whatever your background, you can make a valuable and valued contribution. You’ll build confidence by getting involved and stepping outside of comfort zone.

Belonging – You’re trusted to own your day, but there’s always someone on hand to make sure you succeed. With fellow grads, inspiring each other to think big and take action. Or with your manager and wider Sky team to help build your own unique career.

Plus, you’ll have access to a range of tools, from workshops to digital courses (like LinkedIn Learning), which will help you along the way.

It’s a journey and we want you to see your progress, so you’ll get your very own development report to track your success.
