Life at William Grant & Sons

Our founder, William Grant, was a true pioneer and his spirit, passion and innovation is very much at the heart of our business today.

125 years later, we remain a family owned business. This allows us to make decisions based on the long term vision for our premium portfolio of brands.

Because of our relatively flat management structure, our employees are able to get close to the heart of our business and are empowered to make a real difference to what we do and how we do it. We celebrate our Rare Character and look for unique, pioneering individuals who have the energy, passion and commitment to help us achieve our vision.

Encouraging the Diversity of our Rare Characters

As the largest Scotch whisky distiller still in family ownership, family values play a critical part of the unique character of William Grant & Sons. Our philosophy is to provide employees with flexible working practices to support them at important times in their life and to help them achieve a work-life balance. We will also give consideration to part-time working and/or job sharing for all of our roles.

At William Grant & Sons, our people are our strongest asset and we strive to create a workplace where everyone has an opportunity to fully participate in creating business success. We value every employee for their Rare Character: distinctive skills, experiences and perspectives. Every single one of our Rare Characters has a role to play in helping us to achieve our growth ambitions. We take a long term view of our business and are committed to creating and promoting an inclusive culture where all ideas and views are respected and where our Rare Characters are encouraged to develop and achieve their full potential. Our approach to recruitment encourages diversity and supports our wider diversity and inclusion ambitions.
