Diageo Japan legal will also advise and assist in representing the Global Brand Owners in its strategic partnerships (JVs and distribution partners) in Japan and project manage and collaborate with the partners and Global stakeholders to execute those strategic plans.

Corporate Relations (CR) is a key function within Diageo, playing a critical role in protecting our license to operate and helping the Japan business deliver on our ambition to create the best performing, most trusted and respected consumer products goods company in the country. It is primarily external-facing and deals with Government, Trade Associations and other stakeholders. The function is also responsible for internal and external communications as well as driving our society and sustainability agenda (including Spirit of Progress (SOP) 2030). It also has multiple touchpoints with other functions in the business such as Marketing, Commercial and Supply, where government legislation and regulation can impact their operations. It will partner closely with APAC CR and global CR colleagues across all key areas of public policy, communications and reputation, and society / SOP.

As a relatively newly launched IMC and being on the Japan leadership team, it is also expected that the role will take on responsibilities beyond typical Legal and CR roles to drive Diageo Ambitions and embed Diageo Codes and Values to create Diageo culture within the company.
