Imperial Tobacco says that it has taken on 30 graduates – its biggest such intake to date –as part of a strategy to invest in its ‘talent pipeline’.
‘The newcomers on our 2012 Graduate Programme will gain experience of different areas of the business across the globe in the next two years,’ the company said in a note posted on its website.
‘Imperial’s Graduate Programme has grown from the first intake of just six graduates back in 2010.
‘The current intake attended an intensive induction course to learn about the history, structure, strategy and business of Imperial.
‘This included an evening event inBristolhosted by Alison Cooper [chief executive] and members of the Operating Executive.’
“Our success in the future will depend on the quality of the people we attract now,” said Koos Mennen, director of organisation and people development.
“We are committed to further investment in these programs and providing all our graduates with opportunities to grow and develop.”
