Our global graduate program is known as industry-leading, and we’re on the quest to find the generation of global talent to lead our business to even more incredible performance!
Joining our Commercial (Sales) Graduate Program is the opportunity of the lifetime to work with Industry leaders across a 2-year rotational program. Our Commercial Graduates will work with some of Australia’s most loved and celebrated brands while gaining exposure to our largest retailers and building the foundations to a successful career. The Commercial Program will stretch your thinking and build skills in strategy, account management and relationship building, category and insights and sales operations while working on cross-functional projects focused on delivering strategic projects to impact our performance and revenue.
You’ll be immersed in the sales process from the beginning. You’ll spend time building relationships with Diageo partners and working with customers to improve sales. You’ll be responsible for ensuring our brands are successfully promoted, readily available and well presented to anyone who wants to buy them.
Over the two-year rotation programme, you’ll have an opportunity to excel in areas across our Commercial Sales teams such as Field Sales, Account Management, Category Insights, Shopper and Customer Activation, Innovation and Digital Commerce. Our program is designed to take you where you want to go – with the opportunity to choose your final rotation to suit your career aspirations! You’ll discover everything you need to know about our brands, our competitors, the market and customers.
Throughout the program, you’ll have a combination of formal training with a global leadership curriculum, mentoring and coaching from respected colleagues and, most importantly, real world, on-the-job experience. From the beginning you’ll be working on projects that will develop and improve your skill set. You’ll be able to make a real contribution to the business while building a global network of relationships that will support your career, both now and long into the future.
