- 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…
Great responsibilities that have the right level of challenge and support to grow
Relatively flat hierarchy, strong relationships and positive energy. Being a drinks company, it's a social working environment and enjoy socialising during after work.
The interview process was quite long, and involved online questioning, online interviews and an all-day assessment
We have four different interviews on the assessment day with approximately 7-10 questions per interview
It would be best to prepare by researching the overview state of the alcohol industry, the Diageo brands and campaigns and the area of work you're applying for
Work hours can fluctuate depending on the level of work you have on. Overall, the business is quite flexible, allowing us to play sport at lunchtimes, and to leave early or get in late if you have an appointment, or to work from home occasionally if you need to.
The pay package is very satisfying at Diageo, but in the graduate program you do commit to a capped salary progression for three years so by your third year you can feel under compensated for the work you're doing. That being said, the experience, training, and development you get through the program is unbelievably good so I am happy with the trade-off.
Summer hours - during the summer months the office closes at 3pm on Fridays, allowing people to get to the beach or go home and spend more time with family and friends. It is expected that you work an extra few hours Mon-Thurs to compensate for the early finish but it is an amazing perk.
Managers are really accessible - we have a fantastic Marketing, Commercial, Finance and Supply leadership team who we are able to interact with at a junior level
Systems training and exposure are really good support for external qualifications. There's emphasis on developing both soft and hard skills through mentoring and growth plans.
It is quite a lean structure so it can be difficult, however if you are a strong performer the business will ensure you are giving the learning and development opportunities you need.
Diageo has made a big shift recently in continuously striving to improve the culture, from my experience we have a really solid level of diversity within the company
We have so many platforms where we endorse responsible drinking and educate people on how to enjoy alcohol responsibly. DrinkIQ and our participation in Drinkwise are great examples of this
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.
As mentioned earlier, the company focuses highly on reducing the carbon footprint through all of our manufacturing plantsJoin us to bookmark!
