The Digital & Technology (D&T) function at Diageo seeks to lead the way in the transformation of business capabilities, by leveraging data & digital technology, to create a competitive edge in the marketplace.

D&T seek a Business Partner with a forward-thinking perspective with a well-informed point of view on the changing role of technology in transforming the business. S/he will have a strong grasp of business fundamentals and be the bridge between technology strategy and business strategy.

About Role

The successful candidate will be particularly effective at influencing and driving change through others. The BP will have the patience and flexibility to collaborate and engage with customers and colleagues across levels and functions. S/he can work nimbly in a matrixed, global organization, managing independently while keeping others engaged and involving cross-functional colleagues as appropriate.

The Business Partner will shape the future and drive results that positively impact productivity, efficiency, overall customer service levels, and enhance company strategy and profitability.

The purpose of this Business Partner role is to support the D&T Plan Supply Chain Director to define the Digital & Technology strategic plan for the Distillation & Maturation (D&M) function within Global Supply Chain, aligning to our business goals and outcomes – and measuring the value that is created for Diageo through Digital & Technology investment.

In addition, the BP will act as a single point of contact for strategic plans relating to the Scotch Category within Global Supply.

Finally, the role holder will have responsibility for the IT Risk mitigation plans across Supply Chain Applications.

The Business Partner will create, align and publish the D&T integrated roadmap defining the sequence of capabilities to deliver business value, while articulating the impact of change management.

Finally, the Business Partner will deliver robust business cases to deliver the strategy – clearly defining the measures of success and roadmap to achievement.

Ongoing, the BP will actively manage the roadmap prioritisation across Distillation & Maturation, delivering alignment across stakeholders through transparent Digital & Technology portfolio allocation and clarity of D&T roadmap

About You

  • At least 6 years of progressive responsibilities in a supply chain business or IS role.
  • Experience in identifying and assessing business capability maturity required to deliver strategic outcomes – ideally across Distillation & Maturation or other supply chain processes
  • Demonstrated ability to build and maintain good business relationships
  • Demonstrated ability to effectively lead cross-functional teams
  • Experience in creation and development of business case to enable investment prioritisation

Flexible Working options / Travel requirements

In a Covid world we are not fully clear what the travel requirements or restriction will be.

However, the D&M business is spread throughout Scotland, so it is envisaged there will likely be travel, as required, through Scotland. But estimated at less than 20% of the time.
