Opportunities to innovate in R&D

British American Tobacco is leading a transformation – and our HUB Southampton facility is right at the heart of this change. As the home of our global Research & Development hub, this is where the pioneering science and cutting-edge technologies behind our Next Generation Products take shape. It is a powerhouse of ideas, ambition and inventiveness. Many of the finest minds in their field work here. This is your chance to join them.

Our Next Generation Products rely on the latest technologies to bring them to life. We’re making good progress, but this is just the beginning. Our research and development is predominately focused on our exciting pipeline of potentially reduced-risk products for the next five years. Your skills will help bring these products to market.

Together, you’ll bring the total focus on delivering choice for our customers. We’re leading our industry in creating potentially reduced-risk alternatives to traditional tobacco products. Vapour. Tobacco heating products. These are established alternatives and choices for consumers. What comes next will be up to you.

Expect state-of-the-art facilities, including technologically advanced R&D labs. Expect to collaborate with talented minds. Expect the freedom to explore and the opportunity to deliver. What you do here will keep us ahead of the curve. You’ll be leading our business where the rest of the industry follows, disrupting the marketplace and satisfying consumers with new experiences.

What’s more, you’ll be doing so in an environment that’s tailor made to get the best from you, and for you, to make the most of in terms of your development and career aspirations in a global business.

HUB Southampton is leading the way forward for our business. Join us and make it your business to lead HUB Southampton where it goes next.

British American Tobacco is all about freedom of choice — whether it’s our people or our products. Combined with our entrepreneurial spirit, it’s what’s driven our phenomenal success.   We started trading tobacco over a hundred years ago. Today, we’re a multibillion dollar company with more than 200 brands in our portfolio. With robust positions in each of our regional markets, our future looks equally bright too.

There’s no doubt our industry is controversial — we’re the first to admit that. But rest assured, we take a responsible approach to our trade. In each of our markets, we observe every local law regarding tobacco (in many cases going further through our own voluntary code). Not only that, we treat our farmers fairly, invest in the environment and help to sustain local communities.

We also excel at developing our own people into leaders of the future. As a firm with a high-performance culture, we’ll expect a lot from you. But we’ll support you every step of the way to help you deliver. If you’re passionate and ambitious, rapid career progression is a reality here. And because we’re such a large firm (we employ more than 55,000 people worldwide), there are plenty of exciting opportunities for you to develop a truly extraordinary career.
