Not sure if you should practice to prepare for Sky assessments? According to research, 60-80% of candidates are rejected based on their aptitude tests results. It is proven that practice increases your chances of getting hired.

A recent study (Bradley et al, 2019) found that candidates who do not practise assessments, tend to fail at the first hurdle of psychometric assessments (54%-84%). This study looked at the Top 100 global employers.

1. Online Application

You will need to complete an online application. Be concise! You will need to keep to a word limit.

2. Immersive Online Assessments

Depending on the role you have applied for you will be required to complete a form of assessment. If you have applied for the Finance, Strategy, or Software Engineering Academy Programmes, you will be expected to complete an online test. For example Software Engineering roles will be expected to complete a coding digital assessment.

3. Video Interview

You will be invited to a video interview with a member of the Sky recruitment team. Ensure you have your application, CV, a pen, and any potential questions ready prior to the interview. The interviewer will be particularly interested in hearing about instances where you have demonstrated specific Sky behaviours.

4. Assessment Centre

If your interview proves to be successful, you will be invited to an assessment centre where you will be expected to participate in a variety of exercises. The tasks assigned to you will vary depending on what you have applied for. Potential exercises are listed below:

  • Group discussion exercise – you will be assessed on your interactions with others so it is important that you display your best attributes.
  • Individual interview – a face-to-face interview. This will be in a similar format to the telephone interview.
  • Programme/business specific exercise – this is a perfect opportunity for you to demonstrate your passion for Sky, as well as the skills that you could bring to the role.

You will receive a response, regarding the outcome of your application, shortly after the assessment day. Feedback will also be provided.
