TARGETjobs Events announced today the launch of Explore Sky: a new and exclusive event for undergraduates looking to discover more about careers in software engineering and technology at Sky.
On 28 September 2015, around 50 undergraduates will spend a day at Sky’s London HQ in Osterley, just outside central London. They will take part in practical sessions designed to showcase their skills and personality. They’ll also network with the recruitment team, graduates and senior managers to hear first-hand about technology opportunities open to them on Sky’s Software Academy and Technology programmes.
Explore Sky is highly selective, and students need to pass a rigorous selection process to land a place at the event. As well as looking for penultimate/final year undergraduates in computer science, Sky is also hoping to attract innovative, creative students who are able to demonstrate a real passion for technology, regardless of degree subject, and a drive to succeed at one of Europe’s leading organisations.
Amandeep Jaspal, senior consultant at Sky said: ‘Technology forms a huge part of everything we do and is embedded in the products and services we provide our customers. Over the years, hundreds of young people have started their career with us on our Technology Programmes and we’ve seen our numbers grow yearly with an outstanding quality of candidates. In the past year, our Osterley campus has had significant development and we felt it was the perfect time to showcase the opportunities we have at Sky.’
Kirsty Drummond, account director at TARGETjobs Events said: ‘Having worked with Sky for a number of years on our multi-employer events, TARGETjobs Events is delighted to be able work exclusively with them to deliver Explore Sky at their impressive new facilities. Selected students will get the chance to see first-hand what makes working in Technology at Sky so exciting, and meet business execs and tech professionals. Sky offers incredible opportunities to the right graduates, so the team is excited to partner with Sky and promote these roles to potential employees.’
