Who we are and what we offer!
We want you to jump straight in to your new role, ready to take the bull by the horns. We’ll introduce you to the reality of the business world from day one, you’ll have real responsibilities and an immediate opportunity to be part of our business success.
We want you to act like an owner of Diageo, always looking to seize an opportunity. You’ll demonstrate an aspiration to progress as well a willingness to challenge the status quo in pursuit of performance. Throughout the programme, you’ll demonstrate your judgement, drive and influence in all that you do. You will interact with senior leaders and other graduates across the world to inspire you and help you develop.
Best of all, we promise to give you the freedom to showcase your ideas and initiatives and give you the room to grow. You will bring your passion, individuality and creativity, and seek opportunities to drive business growth through team work. We were built by people of extraordinary character like Arthur Guinness, Alexander Walker and Charles Tanqueray. You will stand on the shoulders of these giants and like them, you’ll have a chance to leave a legacy.
How our programme works:
Our programme is a three year adventure with Diageo during which you’ll find yourself challenged and inspired to reach your full potential. You’ll be introduced to many of our Diageo leaders in different countries so you can see the differences – and the similarities – in how we operate around the world. Working for a company of our size brings with it an enormous diversity of people and opportunities. Plus, if you want it, there may even be an opportunity to live and work abroad so you can experience first-hand what it’s like to live and work in another country.
What the Supply programme offers:
Our products are at the heart of what we do at Diageo, and manufacturing and packaging them are some of the most important elements of our business. Working in Supply you’ll have the chance to observe how we do things at Diageo first hand. You might for example, have the opportunity to see how we produce Captain Morgan rum in the US, or go to Ireland to find out how we make Guinness, the world’s number one stout.
However your role is far more important than simply being an observer. We want your input and ideas to improve our processes and help shape our future. This means you could be looking at ways to drive sustainability in all we do, involved in developing more cost effective bottling techniques or creating innovative new packaging methods.
The products we supply and the challenges we face vary from country to country, so it’s important that you understand how Diageo operates as an international company.
On the graduate programme we’ll help you build a diverse, global network, with the opportunity to join an international team.
We operate in a world full of heritage and innovation where age old craftsmanship meets cutting edge science and latest engineering technology, and over the three year programme with us you’ll grow your expertise in manufacturing (distillation and maturation, brewing, packaging and engineering), Supply Chain and Procurement.
During the course of the programme you will also have an immersion experience in the sales function where you will gain invaluable insight into the commercial side of our business.
The key ingredients we want you to have:
We’re looking for graduates who not only have the capability to succeed in our organisation today but also have the potential to be our leaders of tomorrow. It’s important that you share our Values.
We are looking for someone who is committed to the role and Diageo from day one. Full of energy, enthusiasm and optimism in everything you do.
