Mission: To be the most successful and responsible tobacco company in the world.

There is a lot more to JTI than you might expect. We're lifting the lid on our global business and showing the world there's more to us than tobacco. Find out what's behind JTI's new campaign: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vIxrk
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.
I have been working at Japan Tobacco International full-time (More than 5 years)
JTI is a really great company to work for with a good focus on employee development in terms of training and education opportunities. Career progression opportunities are mixed depending on your department but there are also international moves possible if you are open to them and I have seen plenty of people relocate to a new country for a new experience.
One of the key highlights for me is the possibility for all employees to volunteer as part of the company's community investment programs - I have done so on numerous occasions for the various charities supported by JTI and it is truly rewarding and I love that the company facilitates this for us.
Overall, it's a great working environment to be in with lots of great facilities on site and some great reward schemes and incentives. Just some of the many reasons why I'm still here after over 6 years.
There can be some challenges in relation to the industry restrictions but in some ways this can make it more interesting anyway as you have to look at new and innovative ways to work with these restrictions.
Advice to Management
Keep investing in your employees because they are truly the ones who will help keep the company moving forward in innovative and progressive ways.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Japan Tobacco International (Brussels (Belgium)) in April 2017.
One hour and a half discussion with 3 representatives, including HR. Free discussion, with questions from them and a short improvised test on a press release that they sent once with the interview confirmation.
