Sky looks beyond “traditional commissioning pool” with new program

Sky looks beyond the “traditional commissioning pool” by forging a commissioning program seeking people from production, writing, theater, gaming and music. The two-year assistant commissioner program hires six full-time payers in a variety of genres, evaluating applicants based on personality, situational judgment and motivation, rather than the traditional skills of commissioners. The Comcast pay-TV giant therefore wants to find people who don’t necessarily fit the commissioner’s example, in a position that has traditionally been difficult to break into. The BBC has set up a similar program in recent years. “This is about giving a platform to people who don’t already have it,” said Zai Bennett, Sky UK’s Managing Director of Content. “We want new voices, new experiences and new perspectives in our team to tell authentic stories that represent our broad customer base.”
