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 Finance Graduate Programme
Over the course of your three year graduate programme with us, you’ll learn and grow from broad and varied experiences. We’ll give you a real job with real accountabilities so you will learn how to identify the wider opportunities that lie behind the figures, giving you a chance to make genuine contributions to our business.
You will help us plan where and when to market our premium brands and whether to launch new products or campaigns. Your analysis will allow us to make informed decisions on when to push for even greater sales. Your predictions of risk versus potential reward will help us to decide whether or not to pursue an opportunity.
