Sky to Create 1,000 Jobs
London, UK, Nov 3, 2019 -- Sky is to create 1,000 jobs amid growing demand for its latest TV technology.
The broadcasting provider said the new roles were for engineers and call centre staff.
It already employs 24,000 in the UK and Ireland, with the latest hiring spree set to take the total to 25,000 overall.
The company said it would hire 500 engineers to install its new Sky Q boxes in customer's homes. Another 500 workers will be recruited for Sky's Leeds call centre.
It comes after the firm, which was bought by Universal Studios owner Comcast last year, also announced it would open a studios complex in the northern city.
Sky has 1,000 employees based there, most of whom work at its digital technology campus in the regenerated Leeds Dock area.
