Are you looking for a new challenge within a dynamic, rewarding and diverse company?

Diageo is the name behind some of the world’s most popular brands, including Guinness, Smirnoff, Johnnie Walker, Baileys and J&B.

We are currently seeking to appoint a Brand Home Lead Guide to work at the Blair Athol Brand Home.

Key role responsibilities will involve acting as an authority on the entire distillery process, and to present the key quality messages relating to the whisky making process and brand or brands to site visitors in an interesting and informative manner. The role provides marketing support to key brands through planned activities agreed with both the Diageo brand team and external marketing specialists.

This role will also support the Brand Home Manager in all aspects of managing the Brand Home facility and will require out of normal hours working including supporting VIP evening dinners. The distilleries are generally located in small communities and there is therefore, a requirement to be proactive in participating in community activities and promoting the brand(s) in the community.

Ideally you will have recent experience of the challenges of working within a prestige visitor facility providing highly focused and effective marketing support and high quality hospitality. Alternatively, you may have worked in a hospitality or retail environment where ‘Customer Experience’ is paramount to your role.
