As a global leader in beverage alcohol, our 200+ brands are part of everyday celebrations in over 180 countries. Our ambition is to create the best performing, most trusted and respected Consumer Products Company in the world.

Ever since Arthur Guinness took out a 9,000 year lease on a Dublin brewery, some 250 years ago, we became a business that is defined by the character of the people who work here. It took immense character from Alexander Walker to convince the captains of every ship in the port of Glasgow to take crates of Johnnie Walker to the four corners of the world. Today, nothing’s changed.

We’re proud to be more than 27,775 talented people . While they make our iconic brands ever stronger around the world, we help them go further than they thought possible. Diageo is where you’ll find a wide variety of personalities, experiences and perspectives , wherever you’re based in the world. It makes for a stimulating and rewarding working environment, where everyone can flourish.
