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. 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 Sales Graduate Programme
Our customers are at the heart of everything we do in Sales. Being part of the Sales team means working directly with customers, and it’s a team where your efforts can really add value and directly impact our business performance.
You will benefit from hands-on field sales experience, and will be given the opportunity to sell some of the most iconic brands in the world, such as Johnnie Walker, Smirnoff, Guinness and Baileys.
Working in Sales means you’ll be immersed in our sales processes. You’ll spend time building relationships with Diageo partners and working with customers to maximise sales. You’ll be responsible for ensuring our brands 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 departments – experiencing everything from Field Sales to Account Management. 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.
