Embark on your Marketing journey

Kick-start your career by marketing iconic brands that are enjoyed and loved the world over, such as Johnnie Walker, Guinness, Captain Morgan, and Tanqueray. Together with colleagues around the globe, you'll innovate and push boundaries, carving out the brand stories of tomorrow.

In an inclusive and supportive culture, you'll be encouraged to step outside your comfort zone and try new things, because that's how you learn and grow. Most importantly, you'll be empowered to be you. Because when different mindsets, experiences, and perspectives come together, brilliant marketing ideas surface.

With opportunities to work across different brands and regions with people all over the world, there's no limit to how much you can achieve.

Tell compelling stories

You'll create the next generation of compelling brand stories, helping shape the future of our brands. From strengthening our beloved brands to launching new ones — you'll develop worldwide activations, using your creativity, vision, and pioneering spirit to bring our brands to life.

Because we sell our products across the globe, our ideas need to work across different countries. And on our Marketing graduate scheme, you'll uncover how we market our brands on an international level. You may even have the exciting opportunity to be part of a global team, working together with people across borders to deliver great marketing ideas.

Henrietta Reed

"What I have enjoyed about Diageo from the very beginning is the level of responsibility and autonomy you get. In each of my roles, I have been given the freedom to deliver my objectives whilst knowing that support is there if I need it - for me this is really motivating."

Henrietta Reed
Senior Brand Manager, London

Unlock uniqueness

You'll work in two different areas of the business, bringing your skills to bear on iconic and innovative products. You’ll learn that each product has a unique purpose — for Smirnoff, it’s celebrating inclusivity; for Guinness, it’s communion. With that knowledge, you'll leverage what makes each brand special and create excitement, awareness, and advocacy.


“There are new challenges every day here – you just have to trust yourself.”
