Sky is to create 100 permanent IT roles in Scotland as part of an expansion of its customer business systems team.

The company is seeking graduates as well as experienced IT professionals for roles including senior technical test analysts, Agile Java developers and technical project managers for a Scottish contact centre in Livingston.

Scott Mackay, director of customer business systems for Sky, said the roles would ensure smooth operation of the company's customer management platform, which provides back-office tech support for over 10 million Sky customers in the UK.

"We want to tempt high-calibre bright sparks who are the very best in their profession to build a long-term career with us," said Mackay. "We are known for investing in our people and this is exactly our plan in expanding the team at Livingston."

Sky currently employs 6,000 people at its Scottish contact centres in Livingston, Dunfermline and Uddingston. In 2009, Sky opened a £2m training and recruitment centre in Livingston.

The IT sector saw the highest rise in industry-wide recruitment levels in February, creating a shortage of some skills, such as business analysts and PHP programmers.
