Sky Looking To Fill 100 Tech Positions In Scotland

UK entertainment and communications company Sky is expanding its customer business systems team housed in Livingston, Scotland, in a move that it is set to create 100 jobs in the technology sector.

Sky's customer business systems team is responsible for offering support to customers related to Sky's operations, products and services. The company's Livingston based establishment, which was opened in 1989, already has 4,000 employees.

The company currently employs more than 6,700 people at its business centres in Dunfermline, Uddingston and Livingston.

Sky, which is the ninth largest private sector employer in the UK, said that people applying for the jobs will also receive training. Sky is open to hiring graduates, junior staff and people with an IT background to fill the roles of java developers, project managers and technical test analysts.

“This is an exciting opportunity for people looking for a fast-paced career in advanced technology. Our customer management platform is critical to our ability to provide services. It is therefore essential to have the right people with the right skills on staff,” Scott Mackay, the director of customer business systems at Sky, said in a statement.

“We are known for investing in our people and this is exactly our plan in expanding the team at Livingston,” he added.
