      Sky to scrap more than 230 roles in sales restructure

      Sky to scrap more than 230 roles in sales restructure | Media | The Guardian
      Jobs at risk as team responsible for pushing products in shopping malls and high streets is axed – but company says it can give many jobs elsewhere

      Sky is to scrap the sales team responsible for pushing its products in shopping malls and high streets, putting more than 230 jobs at risk.

      The department affected is referred to as mobile sales, a team responsible for “pop-up” Sky sales operations that push products and packages to the public in places such as shopping centres, high streets and locations such as major supermarkets.

      Sky said that a major issue is the lack of reliable Wi-Fi connectivity which the teams need to properly show off products such as Sky’s Now TV and new hi-tech set-top box Sky Q.

      “To ensure that we can offer customers the best possible experience, and most effectively showcase the full range of Sky products, we are proposing to make some changes to the way our retail department is structured,” said a spokeswoman for Sky.

      “This includes the proposed closure of one of our mobile sales teams. If the proposals go ahead, we will do everything we can to minimise the number of people affected.”

      The move puts 237 jobs at risk, although Sky is confident that many of those staff can be moved to other parts of its operation.

      The closure of the operation does not affect the Sky stores present in some shopping centres.

      Well at least Sky have their priorities right, cutting sales staff not customer service.

      Neither is a good option for those who are worried about their jobs.

      Hopefully all those affected will be able to find new and better employment soon.
