Welcome to the Diageo world of exciting possibilities, a world of celebrating life every day, everywhere.

Diageo is a truly global organisation with over 28,000 talented people and a presence in 180 countries. Across our 21 markets, our brand portfolio represents our biggest strength, and our biggest passion. Be it our global giants, local stars or reserve brands we use our vision, creativity and courage to drive the growth of our products worldwide. We invent strong brands for today and for the future; upholding the quality of our products and taking personal accountability for both the history and for the future of our brands.

We have more than 6,500 people working with Diageo in Africa: our Africa businesses account for over 20% of Diageo workforce worldwide. In all that we do, we seek to bring out the best of our Diageo values and release the 'spirit of joy & community' which is alive across the African continent. In Africa we create wealth both directly through our operations and indirectly through our broader value chains where we support development and growth in partnership with businesses and communities.

Thirteen of our production sites in Africa are in water stressed areas; so much of our focus is on managing water use in our operations effectively and reducing water poverty in surrounding communities through our pan-African Water of Life programme. Since its launch in 2006, we have brought safe drinking water to around 10 million people.

Where there is less water stress we have implemented our global programme 'Learning for Life' which provides life skills and opportunity for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds to take a first step into formal employment.

We are committed to our vision of being 'the best performing, most trusted and respected consumer goods company in South Africa’. The newly-created Diageo organisation in South Africa is built on the principles and foundations laid by the giants of the drinks industry. To be a part of Diageo is to be a part of history – and to have the unrivalled opportunity to make your own mark in history.

Are you ready to join us on our journey to create history in South Africa and beyond?

Our graduate programme

Our two-year Graduate Programme offers graduates an opportunity to be permanently employed in our business on a rotational basis, where they get an exposure to different departments in the respective functions.

This gives our graduates an opportunity to get the real on-the-job experience as opposed to job shadowing, which includes attending an intense 6-month Diageo Graduate Programme with our partner, GIBS. During the first year of the programme, Graduates complete an accredited Learnership, with competencies to be developed such as ethical leadership, systems thinking, scenario planning, and dialogue.

This helps prepare our graduates for the world of work they’ll be embarking on. Look out for the next intake of graduate programme which will be relaunched in 2022.
