About Sky Betting & Gaming

Sky Betting & Gaming (SBG) are one of the leading online betting and gaming companies in the UK, with more than two million customers across the country.

In 2002 the company rebranded to Sky Bet, with the aim of changing the way bookmakers traditionally operated. Today the company is based across five UK sites, with expansions into Italy and Germany recent milestones.

SBG have developed a series of six behaviours - referred to as ‘core ways’ - that define their unique way of working and the principles that make it a great place to work. They are: ‘we are all one team’, ‘we are customer obsessed’, ‘we learn and adapt’, ‘we take ownership and get things done’, ‘we always find a way to succeed’ and ‘we are game changers’.

The company is led by Richard Flint, Chief Executive Officer, and is headquartered in Leeds.
