What will you get out of your career with one of the world’s most international organisations?

Opportunities, experiences, rewards and prospects that you just won’t find anywhere else.

Few companies in the world face the challenges we face at BAT. To meet them, we have created a global business that is truly the sum of its parts. And these parts are many.

The size of our organisation means that there are opportunities to suit almost any skillset. But while the names of the roles might sound familiar, the experience you’ll have is one that other businesses simply cannot match. From scientists to trade reps, accountants to lawyers, you’ll meet a range of extraordinary people here. And because of the nature of our industry you’ll face unique challenges head-on.

There is Finance, where our decision-makers work to deliver consistent profit growth, while in Marketing our visionary teams use the most inventive brand. Our HR team makes sure every one of our 50,000-talented people know that they count. And of course, there’s the heart of our business, that drives all stages of product development delivery - Operations. Like every other function, our groundbreaking Group R&D team is integral to what we do, keeping us ahead in product innovation and development. Our Legal & External Affairs (LEX) team is vital in guiding us through the complex markets that we operate in, and managing our interests at every turn. Then there is IT which drives the business forward through leading edge technology. These are just some of our business functions, all of which are crucial in making us as strong and successful as we are.

Life at BAT

We are all about driving high performance, while developing the next generation of leaders. Ours is a stretching yet supportive culture based on personal commitment and responsibility, and it attracts a talented and diverse array of people.

International exposure

An international role isn’t something you grow into at BAT. As a business, we were born international. So it’s a mindset you embrace, an influence you enjoy and a way of working you adopt from the day you start.

Limitless opportunities

Our size and scope mean we have opportunities to suit almost any skillset in our business. From fresh graduate to senior manager, sales rep to scientist, accountant to agronomist, you’re almost certain to find a uniquely rewarding opportunity with us.

Career Development

We see your career as a long-term commitment and invest in your future potential. It’s a true partnership too. You’ll be supported at every stage, with ongoing opportunities to develop on the job, through peers and via formal training.

Ultimately, though, we expect you to take ownership of your own development plan. We encourage you to stand up and be counted, to assess your strengths and weaknesses honestly and to get feedback from your colleagues. As one of our future leaders, we count on you to make continuous learning and the quest for improvement a part of your personality – to be hungry for new ideas, skills and assignments.


Operating in a highly regulated industry requires a level of rigour and responsibility that few other companies can match. Therefore, the hurdles you have to jump here may be higher than elsewhere. But when you do overcome these challenges, the satisfaction is greater and the rewards are bigger too.
