How to apply

We want it to be easy for you to apply to our apprenticeships. So, here's a step-by-step guide explaining the process.


Step 1: Application and eligibility

Once you've found the apprenticeship that suits you, simply fill in a short form and answer some basic questions so we know you're eligible to apply. Don't forget to let us know if you need any reasonable adjustments to be made during the process — we'll support you in the best way possible.

"You should prepare yourself as best you can. Research the company, the role, think about why you want this role and be prepared to show your best self. Be realistic about who you are and what you can offer. Have confidence!"

Step 2: Gamification

This part of the application will take you about 30 minutes to complete and can easily be done on your laptop or smartphone. Your task will be to play 12 games that measure the attributes that make you you in different ways. Once you've played them, you'll receive a personalised report that will support your future growth.

"Be yourself and sell yourself. Diageo has a very inclusive culture and wants to recruit an array of different talent, make sure that you show recruiters what your talent is."

Step 3: Video interview

We'll ask you to complete a video interview via HireVue. It will take about 30 minutes, and we recommend that you use your laptop. The interview will give us a chance to get to know you better and learn more about your passions, interests, and purpose through a series of questions. Don't worry about having to come up with answers on the spot — you'll have the chance to practise your responses beforehand.

"Spend time thinking about what you could see yourself doing, not only in the short term, but also for years to come. If you ever think something is beyond your capabilities, it most certainly isn't. Everyone at Diageo will do their very best to make your aspirations come true."

Step 4: Assessment centre

Lastly, we'll invite you to a virtual or in-person assessment centre. This step of the application process is a challenge, but a fun one. You'll learn about our business, culture, and apprenticeship programmes, and we'll get to learn even more about you. There'll be several exercises where you'll get the opportunity to show all the qualities that make you unique — just bring your creativity, ideas, and passion, and the rest will follow! You'll also have the chance to ask any questions you may have to us.

"Always ask questions and be keen. It shows the people you are working with that you have a greater willingness to learn which in turn will give them a greater willingness to teach you."

Always in the loop

We really appreciate the time you're taking to consider joining us. And whether you're successful or not, we'll give you feedback to support your development. We'll also ask for your opinion on the application process, so we can make sure it's as good as it can be.

Please be aware that the application process may vary depending on location.

"When applying, include all previous work, school and personal experience in your application. It may not seem relevant specifically to the job you're applying for, however my job has been so wide ranging that I have surprised myself with how much previous experience has come in helpful in situations when it was least expected."
