An R&D opportunity like no other

At BAT, we’re driving an industry transformation. And our Hub Southampton R&D facility is central to this exciting evolution. This is a place where we’re boldly exploring the limits of what’s possible. Where pioneering science and cutting-edge technologies come together in the pursuit of the truly original. Where we create new categories and shape exciting new products to shake up the market. Join a powerhouse of ideas, ambition and inventiveness. From neuroscientists and engineers to developers and technicians, our game-changers are collaborating for a Better Tomorrow.

Our newest categories of products rely on next-generation technologies. We’ve made good progress. But this is just the beginning. Our R&D is focused on building an exciting and inspiring pipeline of innovative products for the next five years. Your drive and ambition – your sheer will to win – will bring them to market. Ultimately, how we deliver greater choice for consumers with ground-breaking alternatives to traditional tobacco products will be down to you.

So what can you expect? Think state-of-the-art facilities and technologically advanced R&D labs. And the freedom to do things you’ve never done before. Keep us ahead of the curve – and put your career on an upward spiral. You’ll be leading our business where the rest of the industry follows, disrupting the marketplace and wowing consumers with defining new experiences. In a unique R&D setting where you can make more of what you have while adding new strings to your bow.

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.
