Graduate Jobs in Nigeria

Diageo (owners of the Guiness brand) is currently recruiting for Graduates (Finance) and Graduates (Commercial -Sales) in their Pan African Graduate Programme.

On the Pan Africa Graduate programme our ‘real job’ philosophy ensures you will benefit from authentic experiences designed to accelerate your career development.

You will build your expertise and knowledge by completing three 12-month rotations within your chosen discipline and there will be opportunities to spend one of these rotations in a different African market.

As a Graduate in Finance your three-year development programme will see you working as a partner in the Diageo business. Right from the start you will be learning how to produce reports and analyse data, and discovering the wider opportunities that lie within the figures. We will help you gain a professional finance qualification and provide you with steadily more challenging projects throughout your development programme.

Support and Development

The three-year programme includes both functional training and leadership development. Functional training helps you gain the skills, knowledge and experience that will form the foundation of your career with Diageo. Meanwhile, we help you build your leadership expertise so you can encourage thinking, stimulate people and drive change.

You’ll also spend time with our sales force, out in the field, to increase your commercial awareness – it’s vital that every graduate understands our brands, our customers and the way we sell.

There will be opportunities for you to explore other avenues for development at regular reviews with your line manager. In addition, there are ‘connect and development’ events each year, which will help you raise your profile in the company and learn from some of our most experienced leaders.

Essential qualifications and qualities
We are looking for graduates with:
• Analytical abilities and strong problem-solving skills.
• Passion, energy and finely tuned commercial awareness.
• The ability to build strong relationships, influence others and work well under pressure.

You will be a real team player and a forward thinker, excited by innovation.

You should have, or be expected to gain, an upper second-class degree in finance or a related subject, such as accounting, economics or business.

Deadline is 24th July 2009.

Graduates (Commercial -Sales) in their Pan African Graduate Programme.

Diageo believes that marketing means being passionate about our customers – understanding them is the only way to promote our brands effectively. So during the first year of your development programme you will be immersed in Diageo’s sales process.

You’ll spend time in a field sales role, building relationships with our partners and working with customers to maximise sales. Your challenge will be to help make sure our brands are successfully promoted, readily available and well presented to anyone who wants to buy them. The work is challenging, diverse and exciting. At the end of your first year, you will have an opportunity to review your performance and aspirations so you can decide whether you want to take on a bigger sales role or move into brand marketing
