Make your name with some of the best known brands in our industry.


The Macallan, The Famous Grouse, Cutty Sark, Highland Park and The Glenrothes. At Edrington, the international spirits company, we produce some of the world’s best loved Scotch whiskies, as well as Snow Leopard vodka and Brugal, the leading premium rum in the Caribbean. Thanks to this thriving portfolio, Edrington is experiencing global growth. Join us and become a future business leader through our two-year graduate programme.


Why Edrington?

Driving the growth of our leading brands, we have a first-class global team. That means you’ll be learning from our industry experts, who are right across the world. You’ll also be part of a company that gives 1% of its pre-tax earnings to charity. The more we make, the more we can give – and you can help. Do something for charity and we’ll match every £1 you raise, as will our principal shareholder, The Robertson Trust.

Join us in our new global headquarters in central Glasgow, and you’ll discover a friendly team who are keen to help you excel. With our rotational scheme, you will have the chance to find out which area suits you best. All roles come with great rewards – more about those below.


Our graduate programme

Our two-year programme will expose you to all aspects of Edrington’s international business. You will spend short periods in different functions, ranging from The Macallan Business Development & Support, to Regional Power Brands, before specialising in one area for your second year. At the same time, you will develop your skills through a formal, modular programme. Leadership, management, IT; you’ll build all the skills you need for an exciting, successful future.

The programme follows a ‘70-20-10’ model, giving a well-rounded learning experience. You’ll spend 70% of your time learning on the job, 20% on social learning (though peer coaching and networking) and 10% on formal learning (e.g. technical training and workshops).

From day one you’ll be managing real projects while constantly honing your skills. You’ll also get direct access to the Board and the executive team from the very start and will be assigned a mentor.

By the end of the programme, you should know what area interests you most. Then it’s time to build your career with our ongoing training and development.


About you

With a 2:1 degree or above, you’ll be ambitious, bright and committed, and able to carry yourself confidently in a variety of situations. You’ll also be keen to work with a range of people across the business, suggesting improvements wherever possible. That takes an entrepreneurial attitude and a gift for working with others.


Rewards & benefits

We’ll reward you with a generous benefits package, including a contributory pension of up to 7% (which we match), life assurance, a ShareReward scheme - enabling you to share in our profits by up to 10% of your salary (after qualifying period), plus you can buy discounted shares via our ShareSave scheme. You’ll also receive £240 to spend on discounted Edrington products and 37 days’ annual leave (including bank holidays).
