Type of Job Full Time
External Job Description
This stretching, broad development programme gives you the chance to prove yourself worthy of our future leadership pipeline through a selection of real-life roles in our Global Technical Centres in Africa (Kenya, Ghana or Nigeria).
This is a three-year, highly visible, entry-level rotational programme. Rotations last for approximately one year and each is designed to help you develop essential leadership and functional skills. Working closely with various teams you’ll gain broad exposure across the business. Expect to learn about areas including brand change, technology, quality and governance.
Each rotation offers a real job from day one with valuable hands on experience. Your rotations will usually be in three different regions, with the first rotation probably in Ireland. International moves are fully supported and encouraged – after all, this is Diageo Global Technical.
Support and Development
You’ll be assigned to a ‘buddy’ who will provide support and guidance during your first rotation. You will also have a designated mentor, who will be one of the local leadership team, for the highest quality support. All our graduates attend the Diageo Corporate Induction in London, making this a great opportunity to network with your peers. You’ll benefit from a fantastic structured training and development programme. Some training is delivered locally (dependant on the role, market and development needs), while some is organised and delivered centrally. Expect support to obtain and complete professional qualifications. In your third year, depending on your performance, you may be considered for our global accelerated development centre, which is a one week training programme for high performing graduates that develops both leadership and supply chain capabilities. We also offer relocation support during your rotations.
Essential qualifications and qualities
Along with passion, energy and excellent commercial awareness, you will need to have, or expect to gain, an upper second-class Honours degree in brewing, food science, chemical engineering or any other relevant science discipline and an excellent academic record. You will need to be available to start work in September 2010, (we are unable to defer places). You must be fluent in English and the local language of the country for which you apply, with a full clean driving licence and a genuine interest in brewing and technology (ideally shown through work experience, internships, placements, projects or voluntary work).
