Congratulations are in store for Juliette Flanagan, Head of Category Strategy for Vodka, Gin and Rum at Diageo.

Juliette has earned a place in the Timewise Power 50 - the UK’s annual glimpse of how work is starting to change and flexible working is hitting its stride.

The Timewise Power 50 awards are the UK's only celebration of people and organisations who are brilliant at flexible working. Over the years, the initiative has highlighted hundreds of part-time senior role models, and helped change the conversation about what’s possible.

A leader with a great work-life balance

Juliette works an '80% contract' pattern and is responsible for creating Diageo’s future vision of how products are purchased across Europe and Russia. She is currently on a secondment within the digital commerce team, playing her part in accessing new consumers and driving online sales.

Having been a primary school teacher for five years, Juliette decided to change career and was hired full-time at Diageo as a Customer Development Manager. She went part-time when she adopted her son, having only 24 hours’ notice of his arrival before taking immediate maternity leave.

Working part-time allows Juliette, as a single mother, to spend quality time with her son during the week. She is a firm advocate of flexible working, encourages others and shares her own experiences.
