POSITION : Global Graduate Program – Supply
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.
The Supply Graduate Programme:
We have a rich portfolio of iconic brands at Diageo and manufacturing and packaging them are some of the most important elements of our business. We operate in a world full of heritage and innovation where age old craftsmanship meets cutting edge science and latest engineering technology.
Working in Supply you’ll have the chance to observe how we do things at Diageo first hand. 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, getting involved in developing more cost effective bottling techniques or creating new innovative 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.
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 with an interesting opportunity to have an immersion experience in the sales function.
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.
You’ll have the opportunity to work collaboratively while showing your confidence and conviction to challenge people, in pursuit of finding the best and most innovative solutions for Diageo. Your drive and agility will be applied to overcome challenges and to develop yourself as you progress through the programme while building and maintaining strong relationships.
