You may not have heard of Diageo, but you’ll definitely be familiar with its brands. With the likes of Smirnoff, Baileys, Captain Morgan, and Guinness under its belt, it’s the world’s leading premier drinks business, and employs over 23,000 people in 80 countries.
Diageo prides itself on its unique culture that celebrates success and encourages teamwork. As a FTSE 100 company that operates globally, it offers opportunities to work in countries including Great Britain, Ireland, United States, Canada, Spain, Italy, Africa, Latin America, Australia, India, and the Caribbean, depending on which business function you choose to work in.
The business offers three-year graduate programmes in sales, consumer marketing, human resources, manufacturing, and supply chain. All of these programmes are underpinned by robust training, and all graduates are allocated a mentor from the senior leadership team for the duration of the first year.
To apply, graduates need a 2:1 bachelors degree from a recognised university, as well as a full, clean driving licence. The recruiters are also keen to find individuals with sound commercial awareness and a passion for both the business and their chosen area of specialism.
As is expected from a large business of this nature, there is a competitive salary and a dedication to giving employees a good work-life balance.
The name Diageo uses two Latin & Greek words combines to mean giving pleasure every day, everywhere.
