See what our Engineers have to say"Working at Sky Betting and Gaming allows me to balance work and life commitments. The ability to have three children and still be able to attend their school plays etc, while working full-time within a job that I love without guilt, is by far the best perk for me. It’s nice to still have the ability to be a mum and still have a career."SophiaSoftware Engineer

Supporting the Lighthouse Futures TrustFrom the Tech Academy's inception back in April 2018, it’s been one of our goals to take our offering external and allow others outside of SBG to benefit from the technical skills and knowledge of our employees. To reach that Milestone with the Lighthouse Futures Trust was an amazing achievement.
