Our business - Finance and Control

We’re right at the centre of the business’s decision-making, whether partnering operational teams to enhance their performance, being custodians of our annual investments in technology and services, or helping to shape our three-year strategy.

Celebrate success

For you, working here means developing your functional and leadership skills as you operate across our global organisation. But performance is only part of the story. We nurture a multi-cultural, multi-language environment. And we value each other. Our quarterly development days are time to reflect on our own personal growth, and on annual community days we make time to give back. We celebrate success, too, and we’re proud to boast winners of the Chief Productivity Officer Award in our ranks. (The CPO Awards recognise and celebrate extraordinary individual and team contributions to the business. They are awarded once a year.)

Be at the heart of things

Let us tell you a bit more about the function. It’s 16 years since Diageo Business Services, Budapest was established. Out of the 1,350 DBS people here who call Budapest home, 440 are in Finance. We’re proud to be a go-to function.

This team handles Diageo-wide transactions all across the world. In Financial Controllership, we guarantee the fair representation of business performance and ensure the transparency of financials. We’re also responsible for in-market financials and the end-to-end ownership of financial activities and controls. We form strategic partnerships with our colleagues in the markets and drive transformation. And to make all this possible we centralise core finance activities here in Budapest.

And that’s not all. We’re increasingly playing a central role in overall governance and compliance for Diageo and we’ve been charged by the Chief Financial Officer to be Diageo’s control exemplar - accountable for the execution of operations and governance of all Diageo finance shared services. And we’re currently evolving into a more strategic provider of expertise: a true centre of excellence.
