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. Plus you’ll have the support of a great manager, dedicated mentor and buddy.
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. You’ll also enjoy the backing and support of a mentor and buddy who will give you an introduction to Diageo’s culture and help you successfully navigate your career. Working for a company of our size brings with it an enormous diversity of people and opportunities. We’ll introduce you to global networks so you can experience different cultures and make new friends and professional connections. 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.
We encourage you to apply where your true passion is. But whichever are you join us in you’ll find we employ the same approach to your development, providing you with two to three rotations within your chosen programme over three years.
