WHY CHOOSE US?
Our strategy is to foster an open, confident culture that encourages change and innovation. Our culture is shaped by the Guiding Principles, and inspires people to perform and enjoy.
For more than a century, British American Tobacco has built a reputation as one of the world's leading fast moving consumer goods companies. The Group has a presence in 180 countries around the world and more than 200 brands in our portfolio. Our companies, including associated companies, employ more than 60,000 people worldwide.
British American Tobacco's multinationalism makes it a business that is greater than the sum of its parts. Our strength derives from our proven ability to harness different ideas from around the world. We understand the importance of cultural identity and tradition, and always seek to combine differences in perspective and methodology for optimum effect. The result is a business with a globally recognisable corporate image, but one that places a high value on individuality, local knowledge, and personal freedom.
At British American Tobacco, we also recognise that your career is just one of many aspects of your life. That is why we invest in activities that help our employees maintain work-life balance. As an example, our Sports and Recreational Club provides employees with a wide range of healthy and fun activities outside of work. Family Day and Compassionate Leave are other instances of our commitment to helping our employees balance work and life. We believe an investment in our employees' well-being is an investment in our future.
Lifelong learning & development
We believe that continuous learning is the key to success in a constantly changing and ever-demanding world. We are looking for people who can accept and build upon constructive criticism, have a natural curiosity about the world and a strong desire for knowledge.
At British American Tobacco, opportunities to learn will surround you every day. Development can come from assignments to different parts of a function, to a different function or to a different country, or from local, regional, and international management training programmes that provide a real opportunity to learn from the best.
In addition, consistent with the Group's e-People imperative, British American Tobacco has been launching various e-Initiatives such as e-Induction, e-Learning, and e-Library to encourage and reward continuous self-development.
Together, we will find a path that promises to stretch your capabilities, build self-awareness of your strengths and weaknesses, and optimize your exposure to the various developmental activities we offer.
We encourage you to spend quality time thinking about your development and your career. You are expected to be an active participant in this process. Learning and development is not something the Company "does" to you - it is up to you to take the initiative and drive your own development.
Across the business, our practices in the area of Remuneration and Benefits aim to support our goal of attracting and retaining the best talent for the organisation - both now and in the future. Our remuneration policies are designed to be highly competitive and to ensure real differentiation amongst individuals and teams on the basis of performance.
At British American Tobacco, we will continue to offer competitive benefits and salaries to secure high calibre talent. We provide packages commensurate with local market salaries through regular benchmarking against a selected group of blue-chip companies, while ensuring that our pay practices demonstrate a fair link with performance.
As you grow, deliver, and exceed expectations, you will be recognized via increased responsibility, unique challenges, career opportunities, and positive team relationships.
