Who we are and what we offer!
We want you to jump straight in to your new role and from day one you’ll have real responsibilities and an immediate opportunity to be part of our business success. You’ll demonstrate an aspiration to progress as well a willingness to challenge the status quo in pursuit of performance. Best of all, we promise to give you the freedom to showcase your ideas and initiatives and give you the room to grow.

How our programme works:
Our programme is a three year adventure providing you with two to three rotations during which you’ll find yourself challenged and inspired to reach your full potential. You’ll be introduced to many of our Diageo leaders globally so you can see the differences and 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. 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.
The Commercial Graduate Programme
Our customers are at the heart of everything we do in Sales and marketing and working in our Commercial team’s means you’ll be immersed in our sales and marketing processes. You’ll spend time building relationships with Diageo partners and working with customers to maximise sales. You’ll be responsible for ensuring some of the most iconic brands in the world, such as Johnnie Walker, Smirnoff, Guinness and Baileys are successfully promoted, readily available and well presented to anyone who wants to buy them. It’s challenging, it’s diverse and it’s exciting.
Over the three years, you’ll have an opportunity to excel in three broad but exciting areas across our different Sales and Marketing departments – experiencing everything from Field Sales to Account Management; you will work on iconic and innovative brands, and be inspired to excel in exciting areas that help you to build the foundations of your Commercial & Marketing capability. You’ll be exposed to the real business world, selling and discovering all you need to know about our brands, our competitors, the market and customers.
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. Full of energy, enthusiasm and optimism in everything you do. Following your instincts and standing up for what you feel is right.
