Apprentices at Diageo sometimes get to meet with various dignatories.

Scottish Minister Natalie Don [pictured above, third from left] visited Diageo Shieldhall for a tour of the world’s biggest Scotch whisky bottling plant.

"Thank you for having me!" said Minister Don. "Really enjoyed the tour, it’s impossible to imagine the scale of production until you actually see it. Also great to learn about sustainability and inclusivity goals and lovely to chat to some of your enthusiastic team and apprentices."

"Thank you for taking time to meet and chat to our people, including our apprentices," said Diageo about the visit.

Diageo has a wide variety of apprenticeship programmes across the world, including in the United Kingdom, Australia, and countries across Africa and Latin America.

Diageo apprentices contribute to the work that goes into making, bottling and distributing the company's much-loved premium brands — like Johnnie Walker, Captain Morgan, Baileys, and Guinness — around the globe. Benefits include an earn-as-you-learn scheme and an attractive reward and benefits package as apprentices develop their knowledge and skills. What's more: apprentices are part of an inclusive culture, where they're celebrated for their achievements and empowered to be the best they can be. Together with talented people from all corners of the world, apprentices do work that's absolutely crucial for building Diageo's iconic brands.

“I chose an apprenticeship with Diageo to build a long-term career in a well-established company and Diageo is well-known as being a great company to work for. I knew I didn’t want to go back to college or university and by taking this role as an apprentice I am able to learn whilst gaining qualifications,” cpmmented Supply Chain Apprentice, Scotland, Anne Johnstone.
