  2. Job title:Home Service Engineer
  3. Describe your role in one word:Satisfying
  4. What area of Sky do you work in?Home Service and Supply
  5. Describe a typical day:My day begins with a trip to my ‘lock box’ to collect any stock I may have ordered for the day, then scan the items onto my iPad and into the van. From there I head to my first customer for either an installation or perform a service on one of our range of products. When I’m with customers, I usually chat to them and get a feel for their interests so I can tailor my demonstration of the system to them specifically.
  6. Describe your work/life balance at Sky:The work life balance at sky is just as it says -balanced! As a Home Service Engineer, there can be long days - but the rota system means we have plenty of days off to allow for a healthy work/life balance.
