Expect industry-leading benefits. Plus, experiences you’ll only find at Sky.
What you’ll be doing
Are you looking to continue your learning after full-time education? Not sure if college or university is for you? Or looking to make a career change? Coming back to work but with a flexible schedule? Would you like to be able to ‘Earn whilst you Learn’? Then our Home Service apprenticeship could be great for you. All our apprentices learn new skills & a trade, whilst studying for a recognised qualification. Sound great? Then read on to find out more…
If you’re a self-starter with a resilient, can-do attitude and bags of character you’ll fit right in. Tech experience really isn’t essential in this job.

Our programme offers roles across the UK and, no matter where you join, you’ll get seven weeks of both face-to-face and virtual training to learn the skills and knowledge required for the role. And you’ll pick up the ropes from a mentor by shadowing them for six months of your apprenticeship.
