External Job Description

Diageo is the world’s leading premium drinks company, a business built on the principles and foundations laid by the giants of our industry.
Our purpose, celebrating life, every day, everywhere means that our brands are part of celebrations big and small. We believe that living our purpose in full is to make the most of life - to be the best you can be at work, at home, with friends, in the community, and for the community.

A pivotal and exciting role has come up working for the Data Privacy Officer. The successful candidate will be trusted with highly confidential information. Sound judgment and positive influencing skills as well as the ability to build strong relationships and networks are essential. Intelligent, well educated, and highly organised, the successful candidate will be required to provide comprehensive and professional secretarial and administrative support.  The ability to work independently is critical. The successful candidate will have a breadth of experience, a good level of self-confidence and the appropriate gravitas.


  • Manage diary, e-mails, post and calls – comfortably handling routine issues, prioritising others and using initiative and judgement in seeking responses for non-routine matters.
  • Build strong and credible relationships with both internal and external stakeholders
  • Organise and book meetings, travel and events on a complex scale without guidance and in both domestic and international markets
  • Manage, input and prepare monthly expenses, including those for overseas trips involving foreign currency.
  • Manage and co-ordinate all random/ad-hoc administrative requests, including a limited level of personal work – all with the utmost efficiency and discretion

Like many roles within Diageo, this role may allow some flexibility of working remotely on occasion, at the line manager’s discretion.  More formal arrangements may be considered upon application through the flexible working policy.

Diageo’s values are reinforced on a day to day basis; celebrating life, every day, everywhere. We are immensely proud of our brands and there are regular events and activities on-site that celebrate our successes. We also have a bar downstairs that serves some of our latest innovations.
