Man smiling in office

From Guinness, Smirnoff and Johnnie Walker to Baileys, Captain Morgan and Gordon’s, Diageo has a stable of premium drinks brands enjoyed the world over. Our Marketing teams play a big role in ensuring our brands live and breathe their purpose and we remain at the heart of celebrations everywhere.

Marketing here is a sophisticated operation and this graduate programme will give everything you need to thrive.

Tell compelling stories

Join our programme and you’ll help create the next generation of compelling and powerful brand stories. Stories that make our existing brands even stronger, and perhaps even launching new ones. Developing creative platforms that will be activated all over the world, you’ll use your creativity, vision and pioneering spirit to bring our brands to life.

Because we sell our brands across the globe, our ideas need to work across different countries, so working with us you’ll uncover how Diageo markets at an international level. You may even have the opportunity to be part of a global team, working together to inspire and support each other to deliver great marketing ideas.

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


Marketing Manager

Do it with purpose

During your time with us, you'll work in three different areas of the business, bringing your skills to bear on iconic and innovative products. You’ll learn that each has a unique purpose – with Smirnoff it’s celebrating inclusivity; for Guinness it’s communion – and the challenge is to leverage what makes each special and create excitement, awareness and advocacy.

Finally, our marketers understand that adding value for our customers and delivering amazing experiences to our consumers are key to selling our brands. That's why we also offer our graduates the opportunity to spend a year working as part of our Sales team.
