Project manager, at Imperial Tobacco

Application Advice:

Read the questions carefully and try to choose the most relevant example- not the one which sounds the most impressive. Really research the company values as these aren't just website slogans but wholly applicable to every day life. Also make sure your market research is spot on- the industry is so well documented and transparent there is no excuse for not knowing about the brands, locations, senior business leaders and of course, regulation in the tobacco industry.

Finally be prepared to be asked about your opinions on the Tobacco Industry and park any doubts you might have about ethics until you get to assessment centre- they will soon be answered.

Interview Advice:

If you get through to assessment centre- be yourself and don't try to dominate. ITG recruits team players and those assessing you are looking for potential colleagues- not for who can best regurgitate something the Student Room told you about being the 'timekeeper' or 'moderator'. Just act as if you were in the scenario- offer practical advice and your natural personality show- introvert or extrovert there is genuinely no type. Also don't be intimidated if you don't think you have the relevant experience- ITG looks for potential, not achievements to date- so use the most relevant examples, not the seemingly most impressive.

Application Advice:

In order to work in this industry you need to make sure you have no problems with working for a controversial company. On top of this make sure to be yourself and show your personality in both phone interviews and assesment days. They are looking for people who are intelligent and work hard but also for those who can get along with everyone they're working with.

Interview Advice:

Competitors? Do you mind working for a controversial company? Why does this industry interest you? Why are you interested in working in finance/supply chain/manufacturing etc? Make sure you look at the values on the website and have examples of how you have demonstrated each of these.
