Japan Tobacco International – Why Work For Us?


JTI is a member of the Japan Tobacco Group of Companies, a leading international tobacco product manufacturer.

Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, JTI has over 26,000 employees across the world representing more than 100 nationalities. The company markets world-renowned brands in more than 120 countries and has 364 offices, 25 factories, 8 R&D centers and 5 tobacco processing facilities.

With such a wide geographical and functional spread, we have opportunities in areas ranging from Global Supply Chain to General Administration, Sales to Product and Manufacturing.

Employees with a can-do attitude progress their careers the furthest at JTI, whether they’re pursuing a traditional, vertical career path, or one that moves laterally through our business

We value both types of career, since we benefit from employees with a broad understanding of our business, as much as from those who specialize in one part.

A can-do attitude is about demonstrating positivity towards the projects and tasks and showing respect for the views and arguments of others. It’s about playing an active role in their team and taking every opportunity to develop new skills.

Most of all, it means maximizing every opportunity to contribute through being passionate about helping JTI grow.

JTI managers are guided on how to spot the right attitude when hiring. It’s as important as finding the right skills.

We’re big enough to offer you a wide range of development opportunities, while our dynamic culture will give you the freedom to make a difference and create your own career path. Ongoing coaching and on-the-job training – provided by your line manager and facilitated by our HR team – will help you broaden your skills. You will also have the chance to meet people of different cultures and nationalities and gain exposure to international practices.

JTI values enterprising minds. New ideas can come from anyone, anywhere, and everyone is encouraged to innovate and try new things. We listen to our employees; we run a Global Employee Engagement Survey to elicit the opinions of all our people on a regular basis. We act responsibly and keep our promises. And we reward our employees’ efforts.
