      Sky Recruitment

      Hmmm, I have a bit of an issue with Sky recruitment and would appreciate any help.....

      In October last year I applied online for a job as a Sky engineer. In November I received an email to say that I had been successful in the 1st stage of the process, and that Sky would contact me with an assessment date within 4-8 weeks.

      I have heard nothing since that email, presuming that there was a delay over the Christmas/New Year period. I have sent 2 emails to sky recruitment since the middle of January but again have heard nothing back.

      Does anyone here on the forums know which Sky office deals with recruitment, and possibly have a contact telephone number for them?

      I'm really gutted to have heard nothing back and dont want to be wasting time sending a letter to some random office just for it to be ignored again.


      If anyone can help I'd be really grateful

      I have met quite a few Sky installers in my time and MOST have been more than capable of doing their job well.

      Like any job, you get good and bad, I suppose you are the best at what you do

      No heard nothing back from them. Have emailed a few times but seems to make no difference. What number did your husband call to chase them? Wish him luck

      Oh well it has taken them nearly two months to reply to my email, but they have confirmed they are still recruiting and will get back to me with a date for assessment.

      This is an unOfficial forum and as such has nothing to do with Jobs on Sky. You would be better going to the Official Sky Forum where you might get some help. Home - Sky Community
