Character Is Everything

We’re proud to have a diverse and vibrant workforce. Thousands of people of extraordinary character, each with their own story to tell.

Look no further than our Data Science Graduate Programme. With opportunities across London and Budapest locations, this three-year programme has an exciting workplace learning approach that means you will spend your days right at the heart of our enormous global organisation.

Who are we?

Diageo is one of the world’s leading producers of premium drinks. We have an outstanding collection of over 200 brands, old and new, large and small, global and local – that are enjoyed in more than 180 countries around the world.

Celebrating our inclusive and diverse culture is core to our purpose which values everybody irrespective of background, disability, religion, gender identity, sexuality or ethnicity. We know that for our business to thrive, we depend on having diverse talent with a range of backgrounds, skills and capabilities in each of the 180 countries in which we operate and to reflect our broad consumer base. We view diversity as one of the key enablers that helps our business to grow and our values, purpose and standards set the conditions for us to respect the outstanding contribution each person brings.

The Digital & Technology function plays a pivotal role in supporting Diageo’s long-term vision by maximising data and digital technology to transform our business and put us one step ahead of the competition – whether that be working directly with our markets to implement new systems and capabilities or working with our Analytics and Insights team to help predict future industry trends. 

How does the programme work?

Over the three-year rotation programme, you’ll have an opportunity to experience various aspects of the Analytics and Insights function, striving to develop your functional capability and technical skills.

You could be working in:

  • Data Science – Data is at the heart of everything, and we use it to build our strategy across all functions, such as Commercial or Supply. You will understand the function you partner with as your own to translate their everyday experience into a business problem, a testable hypothesis and in the end, a solution.  With quantitative analysis, data mining and visualisation you will be the one providing the insights that move our business forward!
  • Data Engineering – The backbone of our analytics products is the clean, optimised data that our product managers and project teams use to build tools and solutions for our business problems. Designing, building, and maintaining data processing systems makes sure we use data in an efficient way, and you’ll be successful if you’re comfortable around code, databases and design. We can only build high if the base is strong!
  • Machine Learning (ML) Engineering –   ML is the third musketeer in product development, working closely in squads with other experts to develop data and model pipelines, training data required for ML algorithms and writing and reviewing production level code for data science models. There are cutting-edge problems that wait for you to solve them, and the team is passionate about action, not theory!

Over the three-year programme, you’ll have a combination of formal training, mentoring and coaching but, most importantly, you’ll have breadth of experience through hands-on learning and exposure to industry best-practice. By the end of the programme, you will be able to follow various different career paths throughout the function, and we will support you to find the best opportunity for you. 

Who are we looking for?

On the qualification’s side, you’ll need to have acquired or be expecting to acquire an academic degree, graduating in 2022 or within the last 5 years. Analysis, critical thinking and problem solving are all key capabilities within our function – therefore, degrees in Data Science, Engineering, Computer Science, Statistics, Maths or a related field are essential.

You must be fluent in English, and with opportunities across Europe you must be mobile and prepared to relocate geographically during the programme. Our key locations include the UK and Budapest – however, we are a global function with employees based all over the world – so the opportunities are endless, and we’d like you to grasp any opportunity with both hands! 

Character is everything. You’ll need to be a curious, flexible, self-motivated team-player who loves to turn ideas into action and someone who shows integrity, respect for others and, above all, a passion for learning something new every day.

We have several graduate opportunities across the business. For the best chance of being successful we recommend applying for one programme. Applications are on a rolling process, and we will close roles when we find our graduates for September 2022. Here’s hoping it’s you!

What are the rewards

We offer rewarding salaries for our graduates along with an industry leading benefits package. With everything you can learn here, and the long-term opportunities we have to offer, the Data Science Graduate Programme could just be the best decision you’ve ever made!
