- starstarstarstarstar4.7GradAustralia surveyed 8 graduates working at DIAGEO. Read on to get an insider’s view on life as a graduate. 8 responses.
- I get to work on some of the biggest and most loved brands in our industry
- The incredible work culture, the brands we work on and the focus on developing individuals to be the best they can possibly be
- The people you work with are great
- The people we work with is the best thing. I have a fantastic team and a great leader
- The culture and focus on being yourself, as well as the ability to move around different teams and gain cross-functional experience
- In peak selling periods like the lead up to Christmas, working in field sales can mean longer hours
- As a marketing grad, you’re required to do a rotation in the commercial function so that you get an understanding of the sales/marketing mix; normally this is a field sales role
- During my time with Diageo I’ve seen a lot of structural changes as the business streamlines the way we operate
What insiders say about…
I essentially assist in activating our brands in marketing executions in venues. Day to day I am involved in working on projects to bring activity to fruition, I spend some time evaluating past activities, I work with the sales operations teams to ensure the field sales team are executing properly and I work with agencies to make sure our creative concepts and strategies are coming to life.
In the office it is generally quite relaxed and flexible. Quite a flat structure and doesn't feel so hierarchical (refreshing compared to an FMCG I interned at). There is a lot of collaboration between functions, so the ability to work in a team and communicate well is important and well-regarded. Within your own team, people are really supportive and Friday lunchtime people will often go to the pub for a meal. We have a bar at work that is open on Thursday and Friday evenings and people enjoy catching up together over a drink. It's a relaxed way to get to know your colleagues.
Culture test online (scenarios and your thoughts/actions); online interview with two industry related questions at the end; assessment centre (full day in the office doing industry related activities with fellow peers)
We were given scenarios throughout the day of the assessment centre - such as how we would react to different situations with customers, fellow peers and strategy questions related to the future of the company
Confidence - have a chat to people and have a laugh!
Quite flexible, especially in sales as I am out on the road or working from home the vast majority of the time. This role probably requires the longest hours in the company, my previous roles had much better work life balance.
We have fairly average pay in comparison to friends in similar industries, however the bonus is very good.
We have an alcohol allowance of $800 per year
Extremely accessible, there are no teams that I know of in our office where you aren't getting daily contact with your line manager. There is great access to senior management as well, I am totally comfortable walking into the marketing directors' office without an appointment if I need to speak to him about something.
We have a range of formal training programs which teach us the Diageo principles, a few times per year
From my short experience, and speaking to colleagues, it does seem difficult for some employees to move up the ranks once they reach a mid-level role and are looking for a senior role.
Great representation of women in the business! Equal opportunities, strong maternity leave programs
Clean water programs in Africa, DrinkIQ programs to encourage safe drinking and training of bar staff to understand products and gain employment
We have a fantastic office space located on Blues Point Road, for roles that primarily are external facing the dress code may be business casual rather than casual.
