So - what’s a Talent team anyway? Our ultimate goal is to create, preserve and drive our amazing company culture! We work with bright, inspiring, innovative people to offer an environment where careers are developed, encouraged and supported. From recruiting skilled individuals at the top of their game to developing talent through our Skyscanner University programme, or by collaborating to create a forward thinking, motivated and positive working environment where challenging conversations are encouraged (as well as the odd game of table tennis), we cover it all!
Our Talent Team is split into 4 areas:
Talent Acquisition - you may know us better as ‘Recruitment’:
Our people are the driving force behind our products and our culture. It’s crucial that we continue to hire top talent with creative and ambitious minds to drive Skyscanner forward through intense periods of scale and ultimately achieve our goals. We raise the bar with every hire and are proud of our global talent!
People - elsewhere you’ll know us as ‘Human Resources’:
We’re responsive to our employees’ needs, ensuring they have a world class experience during their time at Skyscanner! We pick up where Talent Acquisition left off, from introducing and supporting new employees on their Skyscanner journey from their first day onwards and throughout their career with us.
Learning & Development:
Developing our people not only plays a key part in their success, but to our growth as a company – you should never stop learning! In order to have the best team in the world, we need to make sure our employees are stimulated, engaged and driven. That’s why we encourage them to own their careers by enhancing their existing skills and developing new ones to help them thrive! One of our values is ‘Master, Teach, Learn’ highlighting that the cycle is never-ending – with so much great talent at Skyscanner we’re fortunate to be able to share knowledge and experience through our award winning Skyscanner University initiative, as well as partnering with external providers to develop tailored courses - from learning a new programming language to a new foreign language.
Office & Facilities:
We’re the backbone of Skyscanner and are passionate about supporting and developing our great culture! As well as championing a number of key cultural initiatives, we do this by creating a fun, comfortable place to work and keeping things running smoothly for our growing offices worldwide.
