About British American Tobacco

British American Tobacco South Africa is the second largest company listed on the JSE by market capitalisation, and the leading tobacco manufacturer in South Africa by market share. We have a strong heritage of more than 100 years in South Africa.

We are part of one of the world’s most international businesses, the British American Tobacco Group, which has over 200 brands sold in more than 200 markets. British American Tobacco South Africa forms part of British American Tobacco plc’s Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa (EEMEA) region, and the Southern Africa Area sub-region.

We are the largest manufacturer of cigarettes in South Africa and market more than 20 brands, including Dunhill, Kent, Rothmans and Peter Stuyvesant. Nationally, we have five world-class Trade Marketing and Distribution Centres. Our Head Office is located in Cape Town.

The global merger of Rothmans International with British American Tobacco in 1999 created the business as it is known today – and led to the creation of British American Tobacco South Africa.

British American Tobacco South Africa is home to South Africa’s top six cigarette brands – market-leader Peter Stuyvesant, Dunhill, Princeton, Rothmans, Craven A, and Kent – and is the country’s leading cigarette manufacturer and distributor.

British American Tobacco South Africa offers an inspiring, challenging and diverse place to work, with great people and an engaging culture that is key to delivering our strategy. Our reputation as a Top Employer helps us stand out in an increasingly competitive international employment market.

Given the scale of our business, we have a professional and strategic approach to talent management. We work hard to ensure British American Tobacco South Africa attracts and retains excellent people, inspires engaged teams while being a great place to work.

As competition for good talent intensifies, we constantly strive to build a strong and clearly differentiated value proposition as an employer. We offer the attraction of a rewarding career with a major international business that values individual contribution and supports professional learning and development. These are the key factors that drive the decision to work for us.
