Leeds-based independent online gambling company Sky Betting & Gaming (SB&G) continues a commitment to developing world-class graduate opportunities today, with the announcement of a new £1m investment into 20 new roles under a Commercial Academy programme.

The Commercial Academy offers a range of opportunities starting in September across the company’s HR, Finance, Commercial, Contact Centre, Trading, and Fraud and Risk teams and in some cases they will also allow for further post-graduate professional study. The permanent roles offer a competitive salary and a full benefits package, with those in HR and finance resulting in a relevant professional qualification (CIPD/ACCA/CIMA).

This latest investment takes SB&G’s total support for the development of early career initiatives to £2.5m and the total number of graduate opportunities at the company to around 50. The Commercial Academy is designed to offer university leavers and recent graduates commercial exposure and experience in the UK’s fourth largest online gambling company.

Rob Painter, Sky Betting & Gaming’s Brand and HR Director, said:

It is great news that our Commercial Academy is now open for applications. This intensive programme will help develop the attributes needed to thrive in a fast paced and growing technology business."

The roles have been advertised at both Sheffield Hallam and Leeds Beckett Universities, with individual applications invited online at
