I applied to Sky's data and analytics graduate scheme and did the situational judgement test, I thought it wasn't too bad.

Same! I got invited to a video assessment today. I have no idea what to expect though, I think this may be the first year they have done them

I got the video assessment as well, I wish they gave us a longer time to prepare. How are you going to go about preparing for the assessment?

I have the video assessment too, have a feeling that it could be a similar format to the first just your answers are in a more free form and in video form of course

I’m worried that it’s going to be like a one way video interview, even though they call it an assessment and I can’t find any resources online regarding this video assessment

Just did it. It's like the first assessment in the sense that they have some situational questions and you rank your responses. There were 2 or 3 questions where you had to record your response and they'd give you 2 minute prepare your answer and 2 minutes to record it. And I had one where I had to type out a response.

It's structured similar to the first assessment as well in the sense that it has different tiles with different information.

Were the video questions more like why do you want to work at sky etc or based on a case study or situation?

Based on a case study. Sometimes it will be like before where they give you some information in the form of an email or a phone call or a video of someone talking to you

Don't forget you have 3 days to do it as well!
Three days isn't the deadline, but it's basically to give you the best chance of an assessment centre.

Yeah, same. Mine went into spam so I've only got today to do it if I want to do it within three days, like they advise. Not sure why our inboxes don't like the sky early careers team!

I'd say to just do it as the structure isn't that bad. Also you can't/don't really need to prepare for it as the questions aren't like "Describe yourself".

Also if it gets sent to Gmail then you can filter it to send it to your primary inbox

Good luck! If you use gmail then you can filter it so it sends the email to your primary inbox. I've just done it now so i don't miss future emails. i only found out because I checked my application on the website not the email
