Diageo is a global leader in beverage alcohol with iconic brands in spirits, beer and wine. We provide consumers with choice and quality across categories and price points.
Diageo has built a strong platform for growth through investing in our brands and route to consumer. Over the last five years we have made acquisitions in brands and local distribution while doubling the size of our luxury business. We have also made changes to our operating model and culture aligning Diageo behind the need for greater agility and responsiveness, creating a business that is closer to the consumer.
Our 21 market model has established strong local business units, well positioned to win in increasingly competitive and fast paced operating environments.
We know that we must earn the trust and respect of everyone that comes into contact with our company. We must be transparent and authentic, demonstrating good citizenship every day, everywhere.
Our success as a business depends on the success of our people. So we make sure that we create an environment where all our employees feel included and able to perform at their best.
We have a culture where success is celebrated, no matter how big or small. We trust each other and value openess and honesty in our working relationships. As an example, look at our performance management process, Partners for Growth. This programme provides opportunities for everyone in Diageo to share their broader goals in life and supports them in exploring and harnessing their unique strengths at work.
More generally we recognise that our employees have commitments away from the workplace and encourage working patterns that balance home life and career. We also aim to attract and maintain a diverse employee base with a wide variety of individual characteristics, perspectives and experiences in every part of our business.
We'll help you discover your potential
At Diageo we want to see our people learn and grow. It's a key element of the way in which we keep our global team excited, stimulated and engaged. We're always looking at new ways to release the potential of our people. These are just some of them:
Partners for Growth
Partners for Growth (P4G) is about encouraging great performance through regular conversations. Essentially, it's a two-way performance dialogue – one that requires leaders in Diageo to know their people, to keep them focused on strategic priorities and to value them as individuals. Through a combination of performance commitments, career conversations and an individual growth plan, you will develop both personally and professionally, with corresponding benefits for the business.
The Diageo Academy is the home for our global learning and development resources, giving you access to the very best Diageo has to offer. From classroom training events and e-learning courses to self-development materials and virtual classes, the Academy offers both functional and leadership development to enable you to pursue a truly modern career.
With a range of programmes, ranging from People Manager Development and Breakthrough Performance Coaching to the Change and Project Management Framework and courses on Influencing, Facilitating and Presentations, there's something for you at every stage of your career. If you are a People Manager, you can even access your own 'My Team' area, which gives you the opportunity to view your team's training and development and book them places on training events online.

About the Programme
Our programme is a three year adventure 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.
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.
Working for a company of our size brings with it an enormous diversity of people and opportunities. We'll introduce you to global networks so you can experience different cultures and make new friends and professional connections. 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.
Diageo is the world’s leading premium drinks company, a business built on the principles and foundations laid by the giants of our industry. Arthur Guinness, Alexander Walker and all those many talented people that followed in their footsteps, cared deeply about the people and businesses they fostered, and the communities in which they operated. Today we stand on the shoulders of these giants and act with the same entrepreneurial spirit. We have hundreds of beer, wine and spirits brands – global, local, crafted, authentic, culturally relevant, luxury brands. Products created centuries ago, nurtured and grown with passion and care alongside incredible new products created today, developed by people with the talent and drive to invent the future. The success of Guinness®, Smirnoff®, Johnnie Walker®, Tanqueray® and many more brands led to the formation of our company in 1997. And we only thrive today because of the talent of our people to grow our brands, old and new, and keep them strong. – less
