About the Programme 

Every week you’ll find yourself in the workplace and completing college work. You’ll have in-depth training on the different machines and different packaging lines. You’ll learn the end-to-end manufacturing process including quality checks, process improvements, line stoppages, machine maintenance and fault-finding, among much else.

Your college time will give you an introduction to the principles of manufacturing excellence and you’ll learn about food safety, quality, environment and health & safety. And at the end of the programme, you’ll roll off with bags of experience, a SCQF Level 5 qualification in Food Manufacturing Excellence and a genuine prospect of a job.

The First Year apprentice salary is decided by the Real Living Wage which means we offer very competitive starting salaries for our apprenticeships along with an industry leading benefits package (Bonus, pension and access to share schemes all from day one).With everything you can learn here, and the long-term opportunities we have to offer, the Diageo Operator apprenticeship could just be the best decision you’ve ever made.
