About Diageo
Diageo is the world’s leading premium drinks company, a business built on the principles and foundations laid by the giants of our industry.

We are a young company born of an incredible entrepreneurial legacy. The success of Guinness®, Smirnoff®, Johnnie Walker®, Tanqueray® and many more brands led to the formation of our company in 1997. And we only thrive today because of the talent of our people to grow our brands, old and new, and keep them strong.

The Role

We are seeking an individual with passion, who has a genuine interest in talent engagement and is tenacious in their output and delivery. The role will be based in Edinburgh and will support the Supply business which covers operations in Scotland, England, Ireland, Amsterdam, and Italy.

They will seek to understand the gap and take proactive steps to build external talent pools as a common process and way of working.

They will have a strong external radar for talent and the process that is required which brings external thinking into internal talent calibration conversations; brings external thinking and best practice into work methodology by experimenting with non-traditional talent pools and non-traditional talent profiles. Measures outcomes and makes relevant and appropriate course corrections quickly if required. Knows and understand the performance metrics that drive the Talent Engagement function and how these are influences and impacted through their mind set, behaviours and actions.
