Imperial Tobacco is a global company with a challenger mindset, big ambitions and bigger opportunities.
The Group has 44 manufacturing sites, around 35,000 employees and our brands are available in over 160 countries. Our core business is built around a tobacco portfolio that offers consumers comprehensive brand choice, and we’re also creating new consumer experiences through our non-tobacco subsidiary Fontem Ventures.
Being a FTSE 30 company in a highly regulated and competitive industry doesn’t just happen. We thrive on challenges and our people are the cornerstone of meeting these head on. Our aim is to build organisational resilience in order to deliver sustainable long-term growth through our brands, markets and people – including our much-valued graduates.
Our graduate opportunities are designed to bring on tomorrow’s leaders. If you’re ready to push yourself, you could grow to make a huge impact on a global scale. So if you have ambition, ideas and commercial nous, consider starting your career with Imperial Tobacco. We will provide you with an outstanding opportunity to learn, achieve and shape your future and the future of our business.
We are currently able to offer a range of graduate opportunities within three distinct pathways:
- Technical roles (Manufacturing and Supply Chain)
- Corporate roles (HR and Finance)
- Business Management (Global Sales Markets)
We expect our graduates to take charge of their own careers. That’s why we offer real roles with real responsibilities from day one. This approach ensures that you immediately become part of a team, where you can meet your potential whilst helping us meet the challenges we face every day.
Our graduates each bring something special and unique to the table, but of course there are certain criteria you must all meet to join the Imperial Tobacco family.
Firstly, you’ll have recently attained or expect to achieve a high standard undergraduate degree (e.g. 2.1; GPA of 3; 60%; or better) in an analytical or numeric-based subject. And your subject of study should be related to the business area you apply to join, such as Business, Economics, Science or Engineering.
Throughout the selection process, you’ll be assessed to ensure you meet our requirements. The motivations and attributes we hope to discover in you are:
- Drive and cost focus to deliver results
- Ability to plan for and resolve problems
- Flexibility to adapt to the challenges we face
- Communication skills to enable effective collaboration
