Sky is to open a customer service centre in Sheffield in a move the media organisation said will create 500 jobs.
The Sheffield jobs are first of 1,500 jobs. Sky said they will be created across the UK during 2011 as it looks to meet demand for its products.
Chris Stylianou, director of Sky Customer Contact Centres, said: “We’re very pleased to be coming to Sheffield. It is an exciting time for us as a business; we are performing well, provide excellent customer service and as a result need more of the right people to work with us.
"We have picked Sheffield for its pool of talented prospective employees and its good transport links."
Sheffield Central MP Paul Blomfield added: “I’m delighted that Sky is investing in Sheffield’s economy through the creation of its new customer centre and welcome the 500 new jobs it will bring to the city. This will be a very timely boost to the local economy.”
Sheffield will be Sky’s seventh customer centre location with other sites based in Dunfermline, Livingston, Uddingston, Leeds, Stockport and Shepton Mallet.
Sky currently employs 16,500 people across the UK and Ireland.<< Archive
