Junior Executive

The Junior Executive Programme is our 1-year programme for talented recent graduates. As opposed to our Global Graduate Programme, you will not rotate between different teams. Instead, you will become an integrated member of a team for a full year. You will work alongside experienced professionals, whose guidance and coaching you can use to develop yourself professionally. The programme facilitates a rapid learning process that will help you get ready for a permanent position at British American Tobacco.

From day one, we will challenge you and give you responsibility. This allows you to develop your career as an international business leader with the required support at every stage of the process, including on-going feedback and coaching.

We take great pride in growing talents from within. Therefore, there is a great chance for a future at British American Tobacco once the programme has finished. In the last three years, most of our Junior Executives have been promoted to a permanent position - all within their first year.

Your qualifications

To be qualified for our Junior Executive Programme, you need to be a recent graduate. The majority of our current Junior Executives have a background in Marketing, Communications or Finance. However, some roles require a background in IT, Business Intelligence or Supply Chain.

As for your role, you will be placed in departments such as Business Intelligence, Finance, Talent Management, etc. It all depends on which area you are interested in. Throughout the programme, you will experience and receive on-going coaching and online training to ensure you are getting the most out of your Junior Executive Programme. This most often leads to a discussion on a potential future role at British American Tobacco: A discussion that for most of our Junior Executives ends with them being promoted to a permanent position.
