Available weekend jobs in Fife
Multinational beverage alcohol company, Diageo is offering weekend jobs in Leven, Fife where its award-winning packaging site is located. It’s looking for 23 weekend shift operators to fill a variety of roles, including label store operator, palletisation operator, change-parts operator and recycling coordinator.
Successful applicants will become permanent employees who will work part-time hours. That means weekend shifts covering Fridays, 1pm – 7pm; Saturdays and Sundays, 7am – 7pm. But employees will have to be flexible as they may be required to work additional hours during peak production.
For Jordan Lyell, Diageo’s talent engagement manager, the roles play a vital role in packaging some of Diageo’s most famous brands like Johnnie Walker or Smirnoff. The operators are also key to supplying the company’s products to over 170 countries. Jordan says: “These roles are essential. They’re the lifeblood, the beating heart of how our products reach our customers. These operators will be responsible for making sure that our customers receive the highest quality products and service you would expect, first time, every time.”
Employment package for successful applicants
Diageo is offering each successful applicant a salary of £22,111 and a competitive benefits package that includes bonus, shares scheme and pension.
Of course, there’s also a product allowance that allows them to buy top products in the staff shop at special rates.
Unique employee benefit for parents
Diageo also offers another employee benefit that’s rarely enjoyed by parents in other companies. That is family leave with full pay for six months. This is available to soon-to-be-parents, whether that’s a pregnant mother, an expectant father, or an adopting family, including same sex couples.
Screening process for Diageo applicants
Applicants should submit their CVs online. They can also upload a cover letter, if they’re willing to do so. Applicants will be sent a set of psychometric testing activities that they can complete on their smartphones, tablets, laptops, or desktop computers.
Those who pass the first part of the screening process will then be invited to go to an assessment centre for an interview and to perform a set of tasks. Applicants who successfully accomplish the tasks will then be offered a position.
Diageo expects a high volume of applications for the job vacancies and each of these will be reviewed.
Jordan says: “We make sure that everyone is treated fairly and consistently. And depending on the volume of applicants, there may be a telephone screening.”
Job with no experience required
Jobseekers don’t need to have previous experience to apply for these weekend jobs in Fife. Jordan reveals exactly what they require from applicants. “Whilst experience isn’t essential, we are looking for people who can demonstrate they can transfer skills from other roles and all candidates must align with our core values.”
Working for Diageo, an inclusive workplace
Diageo, which operates in 180 countries around the world, is proud of its efforts to become an inclusive workplace. They are committed to attracting and retaining the most diverse talent while creating the most inclusive culture allowing people to thrive.
Jordan says “The whisky industry, when it comes to manufacturing and supply chain is currently very male dominant. At Diageo, we are striving to attract a fairer balance of applicants across gender, ethnicity and backgrounds.”
“For our business to thrive and for Diageo to realise its ambition, we depend on recruiting, retaining, and developing diverse talent. We welcome applicants from a range of backgrounds, skills and capabilities.”
