EVOLV Graduate Programme

Still recruiting throughout COVID‑19

Job description

Shape a smoke-free future? Challenge accepted.

EVOLV is our UK-based, 18-month graduate accelerator programme that’s designed to fast-track you and your career. We've built EVOLV to challenge and develop ambitious young people, personally and professionally.

After your induction and onboarding, you’ll carry out three assignments, all of which will provide you with a deep understanding of our business. Initially, you’ll get experience in both commercial and strategic functions, followed by a managerial role in one of our UK teams. When you complete each assignment, we’ll carry out a three-tier performance review for you to share your successes, learnings, and identify your development goals.

While the detail of the work involved and the assignments vary each year, past EVOLV graduates have worked in:

  • Field roles in sales and business development
  • Customer experience
  • Digital communications, advertising and ecommerce
  • Supply chain
  • Project delivery
  • Marketing and brand

At the end of the EVOLV programme we’ll work internally to understand our business needs, and where you’ll have the best opportunity for success. We’ll compliment your strengths by matching your capabilities with the most current – and relevant – business opportunities.
