MEDIA giant Sky has announced it is to create 1,000 jobs across Britain.
Half will be employed at a new customer contact centre in Leeds to meet increased demand.
The broadcasting company is also hiring 500 more engineers as part of its Sky Q roll-out.
Boss Stephen van Rooyen said: “It’s great that 500 new Sky engineers will be hitting the roads right across the UK this winter to meet growing customer demand.
“Together with our expanded team in Leeds, these 1,000 new employees are a real testament to Sky’s commitment to customer service and investment to create a diverse workforce right across the UK.”
Sky already employs 3,500 engineers across the UK and 1,000 more people who are based in Leeds, with the majority working in the brand’s technology hub.
The new roles will take Sky’s workforce in the UK and Ireland to 25,000.
