For example, you'll build relationships with key stakeholders who deliver business-critical change. And with the support of our talented HR professionals, you'll quickly get the hang of what it means to be a true partner to the people you work with.
"Being on the HR graduate programme at Diageo is an incredible experience. The most rewarding part is the level of trust and responsibility you’re given from day one — when my colleagues put trust in me, it helps me to believe in myself. Everyone I work with has wanted me to succeed and has supported me to do so."Nadia AhmedHR Graduate, London
